Using the API to change settings set using DPMA

I’d like to be able to change certain settings sent to the digium phone which are set when provisioning the phone using DPMA.

As an example, in res_digium_phone.conf, I have a contrast setting contrast=5. I would like to be able to change this pragmatically on the phone at certain times of the day. Is this possible using the Dugium API? I know its possible to send a reconfigure from the server but I’d like to do it with an app on the phone.


Negative. The portions of the phone code that process its configuration, and the config handles that control the configuration, are isolated from users applications. You’d have to do something to affect changing the server-side configuration and push notification of a new config to the phone (there’s an AMI command to tell a phone to reconfigure, IIRC).

Since this is a commercial product, the best place for support is Digium’s own Support team. You can reach out to them via the means outlined at
