Get periodic country events

Periodic country events are events that for each subscriber's SIM card will look at it's current country location and the time since last event sent for that same SIM card for that country. Each operator will have a time interval configured for this event, and the event will happen whenever a subscriber is seen in a country for which this event has not been sent for that time.

NOTE that this API responds with the IMSI for the SIM card in the user's handset. This is considered PII information and needs to be handled with care.

This event is triggered:

  • When the subscriber first turns on the device and it connects to a network, it will be triggered for the country of the connected network at the same time as the corresponding 'FirstAttachment' event.
  • When the subscriber enters a new country (not visited before). This is triggered at the same time as the corresponding 'CountryChange' event.
  • When the subscriber is seen in a country, and the 'PeriodicCountry' event for that subscriber and country has not been triggered for the configured time delay.

Prerequisites

  1. An OAuth 2.0 client
  2. A client access token

Required scope

subscription.periodic_country:read

Code

TIP

You can test our APIs without authorization by targetting sandbox.api.wgtwo.com instead of api.wgtwo.com and removing any authorization from the request/code sample.

About stream_configuration

For testing purposes, we include the config:

"stream_configuration": {
  "regular": {},              Reading position will not be stored in the server and load is not spread between your clients 
  "disable_explicit_ack": {}  Let events be automatically acked
}

By default, load will automatically be spread between all connections using the same OAuth 2.0 client and you will need to reply with a ack once your service has handled the message. This is also what we would recommend for real production usage.

See configuring event streaming for details.
