  • This method returns the current request handler configuration of the TextMark tm, i.e. what happens when somebody texts the keyword to 41411.
  • The following types of request handlers are possible:
    Automatically respond with a preset text message (see set_basic_request_handler()).
    Make a public web request to get content from a web site (optionally passing along request data as query params), find a specific piece of data, strip out HTML, and respond to the user with SMS (see set_webscrape_request_handler()).
    Make an HTTP request to a script on a 3rd party server that operates on request data and returns raw text that is sent back to the requesting user as SMS (see set_dynamic_request_handler()).
    No response. Other processing may still take place (e.g. auto-join group) (see set_silent_request_handler()).
  • In addition to handler-specific params, these options apply to all TextMarks:
    Send SMS notification to TextMark manager each time the TextMark is requested. Includes requesting user's phone#.


JSON response.head.rescode==0 for success, or error code otherwise.
JSON-P callback: (as 'jsonp' param, optional) (blank for none)
