Delivering MO messages to your application

HTTP Webhook API

This is the preferred method as it provides guaranteed delivery.

Full details are in the Reference section: Receiving MO messages via HTTP Webhook

👍

Don't forget to whitelist Rock7 IP Addresses to receive data!

These are the IP addresses you will need to whitelist so that we can send data through your firewall:

109.74.196.135
212.71.235.32

Email delivery

Please note that this method of delivery can be less reliable than the HTTP POST method discussed above. Nonetheless, it can be a convenient, and human-readable way to deliver your messages.

You must first configure the email address(es) for delivery, which can be done by logging in to your RockBLOCK account.

When a message is sent by your RockBLOCK, we will send an email to your configured addresses. An example of the email format is shown below:

Subject

'Message 171 from RockBLOCK 300234010753370'
