I need to automate setting the URL used in "Contact Manager" -> "Post to URL" when deploying new servers with puppet.

I cannot see an API call I can use to do this, the only functions I can find are related to testing an existing post URL. (verify_posturl_access and send_test_posturl)

Instead I am looking at directly modifying /etc/wwwacct.conf.shadow to add (or update) a record for CONTACTPOSTURL.

In the absence of an API method, is this a valid way to do this?
Is there a better way to do this?

I am not aware of a better way to do this, it looks like that's only stored in /etc/wwwacct.conf.shadow.

I do see other threads on this as well: Standardized hook - Retrieve PostURL

I'll also check in with one of our development teams on this to see if they have any insight.

Hi @HaydenKatz

Based on what I discussed with the development team that manages a lot of our API functions and there's really not a better solution than what you'd found already, modifying the wwwacct.conf.shadow

Could I ask a follow up question here, I've been looking into setting CONTACTPOSTURL via ansible.

This post helped me locate the value of the url & I've been able to set this, however I'm wondering where the communication type setting is stored? As I would also like to automatically set this to HighAndMediumOnly.

I can't seem to find where this is stored / if there is an API method to set it.
