This method allows a third-party to whisper on call in particular contexts such as User, Organization or global.

Request/Response model

Overview

Use this request to whisper to a party involved in a phone call.

The request identifies the phone call using the User Id, Extension number, and PhoneCall Id. If successful, it returns the PhoneCall that was updated.

The request is very useful when you want to intercept the conversation of a queue agent with a customer.

The request is made by an App that is registered to a User account.

To whisper on a call in a desired context, issue a HTTP PUT request:

Model
HTTP-Method       = "PUT"
URI-Fragment      = "/uapi/phoneCalls/" User-Id "/" Extension-Number "/" PhoneCall-Id
Query-Parameters  = null 
Request-Payload   = PhoneCallAction

Return-Object     = PhoneCall
Example
PUT /uapi/phoneCalls/12/0003*210/444444
HTTP/1.1
HOST uapi.voipnow.com
Content Type: application/json
Authorization: Bearer token

{
  'action":"Whisper",
  "sendCallTo":"0003*024*,
  "private":0, 
  "callerId":"Whisper To Me <42420042>",
  "waitForPickup":"20",
  "phoneCallViewId":"01"
}

Example

Below you can find an example that will help you understand the request and the response.

Extension 0003*024 whispers to Extension 0003*210. The Service calls 0003*024 first and displays the Whisper To Me <42420042> as caller Id.

As soon as 0003*024 responds, it is connected to 0003*210 and can whisper to the conversation.

The phoneCallViewId identifies the phone call that is listened. Once the connection is made, the 02 phoneCallView is created. The request is made by an App on behalf of a User.

HTTP Request
PUT /uapi/phoneCalls/12/0003*210/444444
HTTP/1.1
HOST uapi.voipnow.com
Content Type: application/json
Authorization: Bearer token

{
  'action":"Whisper",
  "sendCallTo":"0003*024*,
  "private":0, 
  "callerId":"Whisper To Me <42420042>",
  "waitForPickup":"20",
  "phoneCallViewId":"01"
}

Assuming that the request has been successful, the Service sends the following answer:

HTTP Response
HTTP/1.1 202 Accepted
...
  
{"id":"b817d2618fe6f1804333",
  "extension":"0003*210",
  "link":{"self":"https://x.x.x.x//uapi/phoneCalls/12/0003*210/b817d2618fe6f1804333"}
}

Use the link returned by the Service to list the details of the PhoneCall making a List PhoneCalls request. The list request outputs the following:

HTTP Response
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
...
