Authentication

Twilio uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your Twilio account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to Twilio APIs in both code and no-code steps.

  1. Create an API key in Twilio. There are two types of keys: Master and Standard. You'll need a Master key to interact with certain API endpoints, like /Accounts. If you don't need to interact with those endpoints, you can use a Standard key.

  2. After creating your key, you'll see an Sid and Secret. Enter those in the fields below.

  3. Visit your Twilio Dashboard. You'll see your Account SID listed near the top. Enter that in the AccountSid field below.
