[SR-Users] Presence + RLS + XCAP

 I am struggling to figure out how to build and test an integrated presence server with Resource-List (rls.so) and XCAP (xcap_server.so).

I am confused about what is meant to happen and how to debug it.  Not sure if I am suffering from incompatibilities, configuration errors, or bugs…

I have not found an up to date guide on configuring an integrated presence, rls, xcap server so I have used old tutorials, module documentation and some course code review … but I’m pretty confused now!

I am using Snom phones and Jitsi (on Mac) to test.

I have a kamailio Registrar which proxies all presence messages to the separate kamailio 4.2 Presence server.

REQUIREMENT : Contact Presence
I would like to get a SUBSCRIBE from the Snom phone to subscribe to a contact-list resource list, and to receive a NOTIFY with all of the presence states for those contacts.  

Relevant snom settings?
	Contact List URI:  this generates a SUBSCRIBE with event:presence 

I believe that:
presence module should be managing the individual user presence and dialog states
xcap module should allow me to use HTTP / curl to edit the resource lists
rls module should be managing the mapping from a resource list subscription to the individual presence states and generating the aggregated NOTIFY messages.
each device should then be able to SUBSCRIBE to a resource list uri and then receive an aggregated NOTIFY for all of the watched entities.

Current status:

The Subscription is showing up in the watchers table, not the rls_watchers table, so I believe it is being rejected by the rls_handle_subscribe() and then parsed by the presence module.  Is that correct?

There is noting in rls_watchers or rls_presentity tables.  Should there be?

I have a rows in the XCAP table for the Resource-List
curl -d @/tmp/contacts-resource-list.xml -vvv -X PUT <>

relevant row in xcap table:

|  3 | org1a-contacts | *****.co.uk <http://co.uk/> | <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?><resource-lists xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:resource-lists"><list name="team"><entry uri="sip:1002@****.co.uk <http://co.uk/>"/><entry uri="sip:1001@****.co.uk <http://co.uk/>"><display-name>bob</display-name></entry><entry uri="sip:1003@****.co.uk <http://co.uk/>"><display-name>test1</display-name></entry><entry uri="sip:1006@****co.uk <http://co.uk/>"><display-name>test1006</display-name></entry><entry uri="sip:1007@****co.uk <http://co.uk/>"><display-name>test1007</display-name></entry><entry uri="sip:1008 at h****.co.uk <http://co.uk/>"><display-name>test1008</display-name></entry><entry uri="sip:1009@****.co.uk <http://co.uk/>"><display-name>test1009</display-name></entry>    <entry uri="sip:1005@****.co.uk <http://co.uk/>"><display-name>testing1005</display-name></entry>    <entry uri=“sip:org1a@****.co.uk <http://co.uk/>"><display-name>testingorg1a</display-name></entry>    <entry uri=“sip:org1c@****.co.uk <http://co.uk/>"><display-name>testingorg1c</display-name></entry></list></resource-lists> |        4 | sr-1490270411-10965-2 |      0 | /xcap-root/resource-lists/users/sip:org1a-contacts@****co.uk/index <http://co.uk/index> |    0 |

I have rows in the presence table for the entities that I want to track e.g.
                               |        |
| 2889 | org1c    | ****.co.uk <http://co.uk/> | presence        | a.1490270411.10942.42.1083 | 1490277099 |    1490273499 | <?xml version="1.0
" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<presence xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:pidf"
          entity=“pres:org1c@*****.co.uk <http://co.uk/>">
<tuple id="snom370-000413260935">
<im:im <im:im>>Available</im:im>
<contact priority="1.00">sip:org1c@****.co.uk <http://co.uk/></contact>
<note xml:lang="en">Available</note>

I am running kamaiio 4.2

Question : Should I have an resource-services row too? Or does rls.so infer the relationship using the URI?  When I use jitsi to manipulate its contact list it only inserts 2 rows into the xcap table and  I cannot get a SIP Subscribe to connect to that resource list either.

Question : What should the curl PUT commands and XML docs look like to build a valid RLS service (is there a good example anywhere)?

Question : Is there an example config or doc anywhere showing how to build integrated presence, rls, xcap?

Question : Has anyone got this working with Snom and or other handsets… the standards and implementations seem vague / inconsistent?

Note: There is another Snom setting (Extension Monitoring Call Pickup List URI:) which produces a SUBSCRIBE with Event:dialog but which should allow a button/lamp/callpickup/BLF for the buddy contact.  I’d like to get that working too, but recognise that rls.so does not handle dialog messages by default, so I’m starting with Presence...
