About the Twilio activity package


Twilio is a leading cloud communication company that enables software developers to programmatically interact with a variety of communication channels including voice/phone, SMS/text, email, chat and web channels. Twilio offers a rich set of communication REST APIs to build communication workflows in a variety of applications and scenarios.

The Twilio activities give you the ability to initiate an outgoing phone call or SMS message.

If you're ready to start using the Twilio activities, see the Get Started section below. To learn more about the package, keep reading to see How it works.

How it works

To enable the outbound automation between UiPath and Twilio, the Twilio activities establish an authenticated connection via the Twilio Scope activity.

After your connection is established, you can add the other Twilio activities to create new automation projects, or add them to existing projects.

How does it connect?

This is where we need your help.

To establish an authenticated connection, the Twilio activities need authorization from the Account dashboard.

To enable Twilio HTTP basic auth, you create or use an existing Account SID / AuthToken pair or generate an API Key SID / API Key Secret. After creating these credentials, you need to enter them in the Twilio Scope activity. When you run your automation project, the keys are used to sign the API requests being made by each of the activities.

Get Started

Before you build your first project, complete the steps in the Setup guide.

After you complete the setup steps, see the Quickstarts guide. These guides provide step-by-step instructions to help you create working samples of the different activities so that you can verify the connection to your registered app and get familiar with the input/output properties.

To learn more about the Twilio activities (including example property inputs/outputs), see the Activities page for a complete activities list and links to the every activity detail page.
