XiVO dird phoned

xivo-dird-phoned is an interface to use directory service with phone. It offers a simple REST interface to authenticate a phone and search result from XiVO dird.


xivo-dird-phoned is used through HTTP requests, using HTTP and HTTPS. Its default port is 9498 and 9499. As a user, the common operation is to search through directory from a phone. The phone need to send 2 informations:

  • xivo_user_uuid: The XiVO user uuid that the phone is associated. It’s used to search through personal contacts (see personal).
  • profile: The profile that the user is associated. It’s used to format results as configured.


Since most phones dont’t support HTTPS, a small protection is to configure authorized_subnets in Configuration Files or in Services ‣ General settings ‣ Phonebook ‣ Hosts
