Use this instruction to change the default phone number format.

  1. Get Application Instance Token with the pem.APS.getApplicationInstanceToken OA Public API method.
  2. Get the Phone Number Provider resource with curl: curl -i -k "https://<MN IP>:6308/aps/2/resources/?implementing(" -X GET -H "APS-Token: $ApplicationInstanceToken".
  3. Update phone number formats of the Phone Number Provider resource:
    • Normalization Phone Number Formats - regex list to validate and to transform any types of phone numbers to E164 format.
    • Display Phone Number Formats - regex list to transform a phone number to the displayed format.
    • System Phone Number Formats - regex list to transform a phone number to POA format (phone number must be separated by the # symbol to the local number, country code and area code).


curl -i -k "https://<MN_IP>:6308/aps/2/resources/$PhoneNumberProvider.ID" -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json, text/javascript" -d@"C:\request.json" -H "APS-Token: $ApplicationInstanceToken"

where the request.json file contains the following data:

                "name":"Australian national",
                "name":"Australian 10-digits",
                "pattern":"0$1 $2 $3"

Note: After updating, the existing formats will be removed. If you wish to keep the existing formats, list them in the query.

  • <MN IP> is the IP address of the Management Node
  • ApplicationInstanceToken - is the token you received at step 1.
  • PhoneNumberProvider.ID - is the ID of the phone number provider you received at step 2.
