The Parlay X Device Capabilities and Configuration Web Service will allow applications to get information about device capabilities and push device configuration to a device.
An application retrieves the device capabilities of a user's device by providing their phone number. The device capabilities are described by a user profile XML file, which URL is stored in the DeviceCapability structure returned when the capabilities are requested. In addition there is an operation to get the equipment identifier of the device. (The operation to get the device identifier is in a separate call, in case there is a wish to restrict this information more than the device capabilities.) In addition it is possible to set up notification for device identifier changes and receive the notifications when the device identifier changes.
The application pushes the device configuration to a user's device by providing their phone number and the configuration (chosen from a list of available configurations.) The application can get the list of available configurations for a given device and the history of the configurations previously pushed to the user's device.
This TS specifies the Device Capabilities and Configuration Web Service aspects of the interface.
