How to Add a Subscriber
Simply add a subscriber with this command:
add subscriber accountID
This will add a subscriber record to the Multimedia Provisioning Service (MPS), with the account ID of accountID. This field is a mandatory, unique value.
Once the subscriber has been created, you will need to enter modify mode to add or change any other subscriber-related parameters:
Modify subscriber accountID
Additionally, once you have set the subscriber name, you can also enter modify mode by the subscriber name:
Modify subscriber “SUBSCRIBER NAME”
Once the administrator enters modify mode for any command, the administrator can then SET, DELETE, LIST, CLEAR, GET, VERIFY.
There are many SET commands once you enter Modify Subscriber mode. They are:
|Accountid||The account ID of the subscriber.|
|Address1||Address field 1|
|Address2||Address field 2|
|Address3||Address field 3|
|Address4||Address field 4|
|City||City in which the subscriber is located|
|Country||Country where the subscriber is located|
|Description||Description of the subscriber|
|Name||The name of the subscriber|
|State_Province||State/province in which the subscriber resides|
|Zipcode_Postalcode||Zip/postal code of the subscriber|
You can also combine the “Add Subscriber” command to include many variables in one command. This prevents the administrator from having to enter modify mode.
Add subscriber 01 name jdoe description “Subscriber account for John Doe”
This will create a subscriber record with the account ID of 01, subscriber name of jdoe, and a description of “Subscriber account for John Doe”.
