softkey.x.action do a POST instead of GET?

I've read:

https://community.polycom.com/t5/VoIP-SIP-Phones/EFK-softkey-to-post-data-to-server/td-p/98649

and

https://community.polycom.com/t5/VoIP-SIP-Phones/FAQ-Using-Enhanced-Feature-Keys-EFK-macros-to-chang...

but neither of those state expressly that you cannot specify that the url should be executed as a POST instead of a GET.

Example:

 

<softkey.x.action="POST https://someurl.foo?someoddkey=someoddvalue&morekey=moredata"/>
<efk.efklist.x.action.string="POST https://<blah like above>"/>

 

Even if the URL is static.

 

Can someone confirm that this is or is not possible? I'm working with UC 5.4 to UC 5.9, and everything is VVX Series.

Re: softkey.x.action do a POST instead of GET?

Hello @allenu ,

 

Welcome back to the Poly Community.

 

We tend not to document what we do not support. In the softkey scenario, to my personal knowledge, only support GET.

 

There used to be a developer community >here< but I am unsure if you have access to this.

 

The SDK aka via the Microbrowser you should be able to define a POST aka:

<form method="post" action="/cgi-bin/mycgi"><input type="checkbox" name="chkbox1" 
value="checked1" /><input type="checkbox" name="chkbox2" value="checked2" checked="checked" /><input type="submit" /></form>

Make this page available on your web server and add a link to it within the MicroBrowser's XHTML home page, configured above.

Steps
==============
1) go to Menu->Applications->Apps Home.

 

If you need further support please work with your reseller to open a ticket with Poly support in your region.

 

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.

Best Regards

Steffen Baier
