Twilio Overview

Twilio's API on Pipedream opens up a multitude of communication capabilities, allowing you to build robust, scalable, and automated workflows. With Twilio, you can send and receive SMS and MMS messages, make voice calls, and perform other communication functions programmatically. Leveraging Pipedream's seamless integration, you can connect these communications features with hundreds of other services to automate notifications, streamline customer interactions, and enhance operational efficiency.

Trigger Code

import twilio from "twilio";
import common from "../common-webhook.mjs";
import constants from "../../common/constants.mjs";

const MessagingResponse = twilio.twiml.MessagingResponse;

export default {
  ...common,
  key: "twilio-new-incoming-sms",
  name: "New Incoming SMS (Instant)",
  description: "Emit new event every time an SMS is sent to the phone number set. Configures a webhook in Twilio, tied to an incoming phone number.",

        common.props.twilio,
        "responseMessage",
      ],
    },
  },
  methods: {
    ...common.methods,
    getServiceType() {
      return constants.SERVICE_TYPE.SMS;
    },
    getResponseBody() {
      const twiml = new MessagingResponse();
      let responseBody = "<Response></Response>";
      if (this.responseMessage) {
        twiml.message(this.responseMessage);
        responseBody = twiml.toString();
      }
      return responseBody;
    },
    generateMeta(body, headers) {
      return {
        /** if Twilio retries a message, but we've already emitted, dedupe */
        id: headers["i-twilio-idempotency-token"],

Incoming Phone NumberincomingPhoneNumberstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Twilio Auth TokenauthTokenstring

Your Twilio auth token, found in your Twilio console. Required for validating Twilio events.

Response MessageresponseMessagestring

The message you want to send in response to incoming messages. Leave this blank if you don't need to issue a response.

Trigger 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.

To connect your Twilio account to Pipedream,

API Key and API Key SID

First, create an API key in Twilio.

  • There are three types of keys: Main, Standard, and Restricted. You'll need a Main key to interact with certain API endpoints, like /Accounts.
  • If you don't need to interact with those endpoints, you can use a Standard or Restricted key.

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

Account SID and Auth Token

Visit your Twilio Dashboard. You'll see your Account SID and Auth Token under Account info.
