SRAPS (Secure Redirection and Provisioning Service) is a new Snom Service built to replace and enhance the legacy Redirection Service (RDS).
SRAPS will provide all the base functionalities of RDS ( XML-RPC API and Redirection management) plus more features as:
- End-to-end security: SRAPS uses only TLS for the provisioning requests, with full TLS Client Authentication, ensuring end-to-end security.
- Web interface
- Remote XML-RPC API available to all customers
- Two tier hierarchy: Distributors, Resellers and Enterprise organizations may perform hierarchical Company management, including Sub-Domains, Users, and Configuration Management ( to be implemented )
- Auto-provisioning: Create your provisioning profiles easily via the SRAPS portal interface and deploy them to your Snom phones ( to be implemented )
If you are using the legacy Snom Redirection Service you are invited to signup to the new SRAPS, please after carefully reading this page.
Supported phone models
(*) The device already points to SRAPS ( https://secure-provisioning.snom.com ), this device isn't supported by the legacy RDS, in case you want to manage the redirection for that model you need an account on SRAPS where you can add the redirection trough the XML-RPC APIs. If you are using the Python CLI you should use the SRAPS version of the CLI in order to manage those devices.
Devices not marked with (*) are still pointing to the legacy RDS until the migration is completed (see above). In order to manage the redirection for those devices currently you need an RDS account. In case you are using the Python CLI you should use the legacy CLI.
- Web portal for signup and account of the same company invitation
- XML-RPC API for endpoint management (redirection)
Status: released in production
- Endpoint management from the Web portal:
- Add new endpoints
- Create provisioning profiles (setting_server only)
- Show list of endpoints (phone types, MACs, redirection URL)
- Release / delete an endpoint from SRAPS
Status: in development (delivery date: end of March 2018)
As we know this service is crucial to your operation, the migration from one service to another has to be as smooth as possible. In the first phase both RDS and SRAPS will run in parallel, when everything is settled we will migrate all the data and the service will be replaced.
The following table describes the migration steps planned, please read it carefully and check with Customer Action column if you are aligned with every step and deadline:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Originally we decided to migrate on April 10 and this is the information we sent to you in the prior communication. But as many users of the redirection service claimed to need more time to register to the new platform, we decided to postpone the migration.
We hope this gives you the additional time needed to switch to the new platform!
After the migration the old Redirection Service will shut down and not be in use any more. All data which remains on the server will be deleted in the next few months and no longer available.
|From: March 01||To: -||Phase 1:|
|Please go to https://sraps.snom.com and sign up for an user account on the new service. You will be asked to sign the terms and conditions, after which your account will be approved to use the new service.|
NOTE 1: The first user of a company to sign up is automatically the company's admin user. He or she will be able to invite colleagues to join SRAPS per invitation email via the web portal.
NOTE 2: During the signup process you can select to subscribe the SRAPS newsletter: is strongly suggested to select such option, so you will be updated about maintenance and downtimes.
You may already manage the redirection of D120, D785, D385, M200SC, C520 with your XMLRPC interface, using https://secure-provisioning.snom.com:8083/xmlrpc/ as the server URL for your requests (the trailing slash ("/") is mandatory.)
Please make sure the HTTP header of your XML-RPC requests contain the Content-type: text/xml.
Since HTTPS provisioning requests to SRAPS must be secured by a proper client certificate, you can get now the redirection URL target using the new XML-RPC method redirect.getPhoneRedirection(mac). Every provisioning request without a proper TLS certificate will be rejected.
|Signup on SRAPS:|
|From: March 19||To: April 20||Phase 2:|
|On SRAPS portal, we will provide a small input form, where we will ask you to provide your legacy RDS username and password. With these credentials, we will perform an authentication check against RDS, and after success we will store ONLY the RDS username into the SRAPS data base.|
With this process we ensure that we migrate the MAC addresses on RDS to the correct user on SRAPS.
NOTE: This step is mandatory to allow the migration of your MACs from the legacy redirection service. If you don't link your legacy account we will not able to migrate your data.
|Insert the legacy RDS credentials on the SRAPS portal, deadline: April 20|
|From: March 27||Phase 3: |
Legacy RDS Signup Freeze
|Starting with this phase we will not accept new subscriptions for the legacy Redirection Service. Customers who already signed up can still work on the system with no issues: managing devices redirections will be working as usual||None|
|From: To be defined||To: To be defined||Phase 4: |
Data Migration and services switch
|We will migrate the database from legacy RDS to SRAPS, and after that we'll change the DNS entry of provisioning.snom.com to our new SRAPS server. During this day, the service will be unreachable. Please inform your customers in advance.|
Operations will start at 10:00AM (CET), starting at this time both SRAPS and the legacy RDS systems will not be accessible.
During the operations we will change the IP address of provisioning.snom.com from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 after the switch both provisioning.snom.com and secure-provisioning.snom.com will be resolved with the same IP address 126.96.36.199
We expect a downtime until 16:00 (CET), a communication will follow when the system will be back online.
NOTE: this downtime will affect only new deployment and factory defaulted phones. Already installed / deployed devices will be still operational without any issue.
After these changes all phones with provisioning.snom.com as their factory default setting server will be routed to SRAPS automatically. You may continue to use your XMLRPC interface with the same server URL for your requests, or you change it to https://secure-provisioning.snom.com:8083/xmlrpc/ the trailing slash ("/") is mandatory.
Q: What will change from the legacy RDS ?
A: All the RDS functionalities will be provided by SRAPS without any substantial difference. The major change is how to get the redirection target of a mac address: since HTTPS provisioning requests to SRAPS must be secured by a proper client certificate, you can get now the redirection URL target using the new XML-RPC method redirect.getPhoneRedirection(mac), the API call is documented on the wiki. Every provisioning request without a proper TLS certificate will be rejected.
Q: Is the Python CLI still available for SRAPS ?
Q: Are the Snom M3, Snom Vision and all the other old devices not mentioned on the table above manageable via SRAPS ?
A: No, those devices are not supported anymore and cannot be handled by SRAPS. Only devices listed on the table can be managed by SRAPS.
Q: What should I do after the migration to SRAPS ?
A: You should make sure to have updated all your systems using the XML-RPC API in order to use the new SRAPS credentials. Then all the functionalities of the legacy RDS will be available on SRAPS.
Q: Is the Legacy Redirection Server still working until the migration date ?
A: Yes: the RDS will be still working until the data migration process doesn't start
Q: I bought a Snom D785 and I want to add a redirection, what should I do before and after the migration ?
