      Yes,   is right. You should be able to adapt the code I've been using for the Twilio gateway to get this working via GOV.UK Notify. If needed, you can send me an temporary API key and templateid and I'll try to get it working.

        Thanks for the replies, I will try to adapt your code. I'll need to provision iRulesLX on this Big-IP. I'll come back if I have any problems.

      Hi Niels

      I have followed your instructions and we have tried to adapt your code using the guidance on I am getting this error:

      Rule /Common/ilxplugin_gov_uk/irule_gov_uk <ACCESS_POLICY_AGENT_EVENT>: sendOTP failed for telephoneNumber: +447767826522, ILX failure: ILX timeout. invoked from within "ILX::call $rpc_handle sendOTP $generatedOTP $telephoneNumber "

      Can you see what the error could be? I can give you the apiKey and templateId if needed


      This is my iRule

      if { [ACCESS::policy agent_id ] eq "gov_uk" } {

      set generatedOTP "[ACCESS::session data get session.otp.assigned.val]"
      set telephoneNumber "[ACCESS::session data get]"

      if {[info exists generatedOTP] && ($generatedOTP eq "")} {
      log local0. "Error: generatedOTP variable is empty; no OTP sent for $telephoneNumber."

      if {([info exists telephoneNumber] && $telephoneNumber eq "")} {
      log local0. "Error: telephoneNumber variable is empty; no OTP sent for $telephoneNumber."

      set rpc_handle [ILX::init ilxplugin_gov_uk extension_gov_uk]
      log "RPC Handle: $rpc_handle"
      if {[ catch { ILX::call $rpc_handle sendOTP $generatedOTP $telephoneNumber } result ] } {
      log local0. "sendOTP failed for telephoneNumber: $telephoneNumber, ILX failure: $result"

      log local0. " status for user $username ($telephoneNumber): $result"
      ACCESS::session data set session.custom.govuk.status $result
