How to set up List Management

In Figure 6 you can see how you can add sender number to list, or remove sender number from list in case of an incoming SMS message.

If you would like to add the phone number of the sender to a list or remove a phone number from it, you need to choose the name of the list from the "Add sender number to list"/"Remove sender number from list" menu.

Figure 8 shows how to filter SMS messages based on a list. You can use the list_member(listname) and the not_list_member(listname) methods in Condition 1 (Sender phone number) or Condition 2 (Recipient phone number) text boxes.

In case of Inbound routing:

  • If the list_member(listname) method is used and the sender phone number is member of the list, the SMS message will be forwarded to the destination.
  • If the not_list_member(listname) method is used and the sender phone number is not member of the list, the SMS message will be forwarded to the destination.

In case of Outbound routing:

  • If the list_member(listname) method is used and the recipient phone number is member of the list, the SMS message will be forwarded to the service provider connection.
  • If the not_list_member(listname) method is used and the recipient phone number is not member of the list, the SMS message will be forwarded to the service provider connection.

Setting up list management database

By default lists are stored in files. Instead of storing the lists in file system, you can save them into database. You can activate it under Edit / Server Preferences menu. Choose the Databases tab and then the List manager settings tab.

You only need to create a new database without any tables and give its name in the connection string. The Ozeki NG SMS Gateway will create the tables for the lists.

It is possible to send one SMS message to the members of a list. Figure 10 shows you how to give the recipient phone number.

  • list://listname
  • grp://listname

You can also send SMS messages to lists using the E-mail to SMS Feature of Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. You need to give the recipients on the following ways:

  • list__listname@smsgw.ozeki.hu
  • grp__listname@smsgw.ozeki.hu

MS SQL Queries

If you wish to store the phone numbers in MS SQL database, you need to modify the Add list and Get lists tabs.

Add list

IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT * FROM SYSOBJECTS WHERE NAME='$listname' and TYPE='U') 
BEGIN CREATE TABLE $listname (phonenumber CHAR(25) PRIMARY KEY) END

Get Lists

IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT * FROM SYSOBJECTS WHERE NAME='$listname' and TYPE='U') 
BEGIN CREATE TABLE $listname (phonenumber CHAR(25) PRIMARY KEY) END
