Submitting Devices to WURFL
If you are a commercially licensed customer who has downloaded the
wurfl.xml file from the customer vault (i.e. licensed repository), you may submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org to add new User Agents (UA). Once a device is approved and added to WURFL, the change will be reflected in an upcoming snapshot release.
Obtaining a License
Aside from the ability to submit devices to WURFL, there are many other advantages to being a licensed user. A commercial license provides customers with access to more capabilities, frequent updates of the WURFL DDR files and increased support levels. Click here to learn more about obtaining a license.
Licensed WURFL Cloud users will also be able to submit devices to WURFL. While cloud customers do not recieve or use a
wurfl.xml file, they will have access to the WURFL Cloud Client which provides a constantly updated cloud repository. Click here to learn more about WURFL Cloud.
When to Submit a Device(s)
If you have a UA that is not being accurately detected by WURFL.
If a device is not returning the expected values for a capability.
Make sure you are using the most current
If you are running the API in high performance mode and are running into issues with capability values, try switching to high accuracy mode.
If possible, upgrading your API to the most current version could help as logic may undergo change to improve accuracy.
If you would like to define a new device, please do not submit it for addition to WURFL. Instead, consider using a patch file for this task.
The UA should be listed in the exact format as seen in the HTTP Header. If you are submitting a device because it is not being detected properly, please include the capability's returned value along with the expected value when possible.
If you plan on submitting a list of 30 or more unique UAs, we ask that it be in a list with two tab separated fields:
