Chapter 1. Admin Guide

1.1. Overview

The module does specific handling for notify-subscribe events using xml bodies. It is used with the general event handling module, presence. It constructs and adds 3 events to it: presence, presence.winfo, dialog;sla.

This module takes the xcap permission rule documents from xcap_table. The presence permission rules are interpreted according to the specifications in RFC 4745 and RFC 5025.

1.2. Dependencies

1.2.1. OpenSIPS Modules

The following modules must be loaded before this module:

  • a database module.

  • presence.

  • signaling.

  • xcap.

  • xcap_client.

    Only compulsory if not using an integrated xcap server (if 'integrated_xcap_server' parameter is not set).

1.2.2. External Libraries or Applications

The following libraries or applications must be installed before running OpenSIPS with this module loaded:

  • libxml-dev.

1.3. Exported Parameters

1.3.1. force_active (int)

This parameter is used for permissions when handling Subscribe messages. If set to 1, subscription state is considered active and the presentity is not queried for permissions(should be set to 1 if not using an xcap server). Otherwise,the xcap server is queried and the subscription states is according to user defined permission rules. If no rules are defined for a certain watcher, the subscriptions remains in pending state and the Notify sent will have no body.

Note: When switching from one value to another, the watchers table must be emptied.

Default value is 0.

Example 1.1. Set force_active parameter

modparam("presence_xml", "force_active", 1)

1.3.2. pidf_manipulation (int)

Setting this parameter to 1 enables the features described in RFC 4827. It gives the possibility to have a permanent state notified to the users even in the case in which the phone is not online. The presence document is taken from the xcap server and aggregated together with the other presence information, if any exist, for each Notify that is sent to the watchers. It is also possible to have information notified even if not issuing any Publish (useful for services such as email, SMS, MMS).

Default value is 0.

Example 1.2. Set pidf_manipulation parameter

modparam("presence_xml", "pidf_manipulation", 1)

1.3.3. xcap_server (str)

The address of the xcap servers used for storage. This parameter is compulsory if the integrated_xcap_server parameter is not set. It can be set more that once, to construct an address list of trusted XCAP servers.

Example 1.3. Set xcap_server parameter

modparam("presence_xml", "xcap_server", "")
modparam("presence_xml", "xcap_server", "")

1.3.4. pres_rules_auid (str)

This parameter should be configured if you are using the non integrated xcap mode and you need to use another pres-rules auid than the default 'pres-rules'.

Example 1.4. Set pres_rules_auid parameter

modparam("presence_xml", "pres_rules_auid", "org.openmobilealliance.pres-rules")

1.3.5. pres_rules_filename (str)

This parameter should be configured if you are using the non integrated xcap mode and you need to configure another filename than the default 'index'.

Example 1.5. Set pres_rules_filename parameter

modparam("presence_xml", "pres_rules_filename", "pres-rules")

1.3.6. generate_offline_body (str)

This parameter should be set to 0 if you want to prevent OpenSIPS from automatically generating a PIDF body when a publication expires or is explicitly terminated (a PUBLISH request is received with Expires: 0).

Example 1.6. Set generate_offline_body parameter

modparam("presence_xml", "generate_offline_body", 0)

1.4. Exported Functions

None to be used in configuration file.

1.5. Installation

The module requires 1 table in OpenSIPS database: xcap. The SQL syntax to create it can be found in presence-create.sql script in the database directories in the opensips/scripts folder. You can also find the complete database documentation on the project webpage,

Chapter 2. Developer Guide

The module exports no function to be used in other OpenSIPS modules.

(2) including any documentation-related commits, excluding merge commits. Regarding imported patches/code, we do our best to count the work on behalf of the proper owner, as per the "fix_authors" and "mod_renames" arrays in opensips/doc/ If you identify any patches/commits which do not get properly attributed to you, please submit a pull request which extends "fix_authors" and/or "mod_renames".

(3) ignoring whitespace edits, renamed files and auto-generated files
