    If yes - then that is why it works.
    As far as I know, Tasker (with the shortcut ability) is not available on iOS (iPhone, iPad).
    My understanding (or misunderstanding, as the case may be) is that Apple does not allow scripting engines to be accessible by the user in iOS. A scripting engine might be part of an app, but only for that app's internal use. The result is that nothing like Tasker can be available on iOS.

    About two years ago, I tried to control my LMS via apples Shortcut app. It allows to POST json coded data to a server, see here:

    Since some time Siri doesn't understand me very well, so I stopped to use the voice control, but you could get the idea from there.

    You can achieve some level of automation with Shortcuts and/or
    Scriptable (a JS scripting environment for iOS).

    Thanks for that bit of enlightenment. It's good to know that options are available.
