Response Elements

The following elements are the basic options for each request. These apply to the entire response, not the individual records.

Version

This is a string value that is the current revision number of Global Phone.
Protocol Syntax
JSON "Version":"string"


Transmission Reference

This is a string value that serves as a unique identifier for this set of records. It is returned as sent by the Request Array, allowing you to match the Response to the Request.
Protocol Syntax
JSON "TransmissionReference":"string"


Transmission Results

This is a string value that lists error codes from any errors caused by the most recent request as a whole.
For a complete list of error codes, see Global Phone Result Codes.
Protocol Syntax
JSON "TransmissionResults":"string"


Total Records

Displays the total number of records returned.
Protocol Syntax
JSON "TotalRecords":"string"


Response Record Elements

JSON will only contain the Records element.

Protocol Definition
JSON Each phone number will be contained within [{}] under the Records element.

Each of the following elements are returned for each record in the Response Array.


Record ID

This is a string value that is a unique identifier for the current record if one was sent in the request. Use this element to match a request record and the corresponding response record.
Protocol Syntax
JSON "RecordID":"string"


Results

This is a string value with comma delimited status, error codes, and change codes for the record.
For a complete list of codes, see Global Phone Result Codes.
Protocol Syntax
JSON "Results":"string"


Phone Number

This is a string value of the standardized phone number after a successful call to the service.
The phone number will return in varying formats depending on the inputs. If the inputted country and country of origin are the same the returned number will include the National Destination Code + Subscriber Number. For example:
Input Phone Input Country Input Country of Origin Phone Returned
495-728-5802 RU RU 495-728-5802
+7 495-728-5802 RU RU 495-728-5802
+1 495-728-5802 RU RU 495-728-5802
If the inputted country and country of origin differ, the returned number will include a leading ‘+’ followed by the Country Code + National Destination Code + Subscriber Number. The leading ‘+’ represents the International Prefix that is required to dial a number outside of the caller’s country. For example:
Input Phone Input Country Input Country of Origin Phone Returned
495-728-5802 RU US +7 495-728-5802
+7 495-728-5802 RU US +7 495-728-5802
+1 495-728-5802 RU US +7 495-728-5802
If a country is entered and a country of origin is left blank or not passed in, the returned number will match the format of the inputted phone number. For example:
Input Phone Input Country Input Country of Origin Phone Returned
495-728-5802 RU <blank> 495-728-5802
+7 495-728-5802 RU <blank> +7 495-728-5802
