Hi apologies if I'm posting this in the incorrect forum.

Can someone tell me if it's possible to get a list of Directory numbers and names from the XML API in CME? I'm aiming to do this with an intranet, any information pointing me in the right direction greatly appreciated.

The IsGetDevice operation will get you all the devices including their extension numbers from a CME. You need to set up the router XML interface on the router as per this document:

then follow the appropriate developer guide which you can get here: (under voice gateway applications)

You'll also find searching this forum for the topic useful as there are a few things the developer guide fails to mention (specifially that you need to urlencode the message before sending).

Hi Stephan, yes I have looked at this but all I get is a list of ext. numbers with no names using ISgetDevice.

actually man , you have to dig through the call manager database, i mean you have to post a SQL statement to the call manager database (through the AXL Excutesqlquery), search though the tables to get all the directory numbers and the corresponding users.

P.S: you will have to download the database dictionary from Cisco to know what tables and fields are saved in the database.

Good Luck

Hi thanks for your comments but my issue is relating to Call manager Express. I don't think AXL is available to me?
