Parse text on the phone screen for automation

Hi,

 

I am automating the polycom phone and I am able to make and receive calls, collect logs etc using push commands.

The phone info is given below.

 

Phone Model SoundStation IP 6000
Part Number 3111-15600-001 Rev:U
MAC Address 00:04:F2:F6:F6:7B
IP Address 10.198.32.96
UC Software Version 4.0.11.0583
BootROM Software Version 5.0.1.10553

 

 

But, now I intent to read what is displayed on the screen in my automation script. e.g. I am calling phone 2 from phone 1 using a push command and I can receive the call by passing one more push command to phone 2 to press the "answer" softkey. But before pressing answer key I need to be sure that the call actullay came from Phone_1 by parsing what is displayed on the phone_2 screen.

 

Is there any way to achieve this?

Hello @nitin_k29,

welcome back to the Polycom Community.

There is no such solution but why does your script not simply look at the SIP signaling instead?

Hello Steffen,

 

Thanks for your reply. 

I need this as the test cases says to verify the number on the screen. But, even if I convince stake holders to go for verifying from sip signalling.

Are you suggesting that we can get the SIP packets being sent/received by a polycom phone through a script. If its true, could you please elaborate more on how to do this or point me to some community question on similar lines.

Hello @nitin_k29,

Well your other post talks about getting the logs of the phone. You can set SIP to debug and see the SIP messages or change Application to event 2 and see:

Hi Steffen,

Thanks for your reply. I enabled the logs plus I also used polling/callstateHandler to get the call info from the phone.
