There is an HTTP interface for creating and updating distribution lists. It is described in the following post:

That post is 6 years old, so it doesn't describe all available options, but the basic idea is that when you have an entry to add to a distribution list, you issue the following command:

http://server:port/dlists?Username=smsuseraccount&Password=password&DListName=dl istName&DListMemberAction=Add&DListMember= 1234

Username and password refer to credentials for an account named under "SMS Users". The distribution list is created under that account by default.

To create a public distribution list instead, make sure "admin access" is enabled for the SMS User account, and add &DListPublic=Yes to the URL.

To delete an entry, change DListMemberAction=Add to DListMemberAction=Delete.

There are some PHP example scripts here:

Note that the example scripts do not include support for the newer DListPublic=Yes option, so you would need to modify the scripts if you need that support.
