Cisco TelePresence MCU MSE Series

XML-RPC API string length for parameters

How long are the XML-RPC API strings?

This article applies to the following products:

  • Cisco TelePresence MCU 4200 Series
  • Cisco TelePresence MCU 4500 Series
  • Cisco TelePresence MCU 5300 Series
  • Cisco TelePresence MCU MSE Series

The MCU software may provide strings to the XML-RPC API of up to 31 characters long, unless otherwise stated in the documentation. In some cases, the API will accept longer strings and truncate the stored / returned values to 31 characters. In others, the API will return a fault code if the value is unexpected or not allowed.

The name parameter, for example, in the participant.add call, is limited to 31 characters. This is true despite the fact that the API documentation does not explicitly list the parameter length.
