I have two questions about provisioning numbers:
- I'm seeing an issue, where when I create 2 (or more) applications on the telstra dev web site they are provisioned with the same number. I haven't been able to pin point the exact issue. The application that's created second seems to be the one that's able to send/receive messages. I think the issue might only occur when I create two applications back-to-back. If I wait a while (and make some API requests with the 1st application) the second application is correctly allocated a new number. Can you please try to reproduce this issue and advise whether there's a work around or whether a fix is planned?
- I'm seeing that new provision number requests allocate numbers sequentially in the 0472880XXX range. It looks like the numbers might recycle, once 0472880999 is reached. Is this correct? Are there any ACMA guidelines on recycling used numbers, eg waiting a certain time period, etc? Is the number pool shared between the free tier/payg tier/enterprise tier (it looks like it is shared)? Is there a way to request a unique number pool for a new company profile? A pool of 999 numbers doesn't seem like a lot to me and I'm concerned about receiving replies intended for someone else as well as other people receiving replies from my applications that are no longer in use. I think the main concern here is privacy (eg when using the API for 2 factor authentication, an unintented sms recipient could subsequently orchestrate a password reset attack). I'm still deciding on whether it's a legitimate concern for my application.
