CURL()

Synopsis

Retrieve content from a remote web or ftp server

Description

When this function is read, a 'HTTP GET' (by default) will be used to retrieve the contents of the provided url. The contents are returned as the result of the function.

Example: Displaying contents of a page
exten => s,1,Verbose(0, ${CURL(http://localhost:8088/static/astman.css)})
When this function is written to, a 'HTTP GET' will be used to retrieve the contents of the provided url. The value written to the function specifies the destination file of the cURL'd resource.

Example: Retrieving a file
exten => s,1,Set(CURL(http://localhost:8088/static/astman.css)=/var/spool/asterisk/tmp/astman.css))

Note

If 'live_dangerously' in 'asterisk.conf' is set to 'no', this function can only be written to from the dialplan, and not directly from external protocols. Read operations are unaffected.

Syntax

CURL(url,post-data)
Arguments
  • url - The full URL for the resource to retrieve.
  • post-data - Read Only
    If specified, an 'HTTP POST' will be performed with the content of post-data, instead of an 'HTTP GET' (default).
