Before you can start using the Twilio activities, you must create an API key for use in authenticating to Twilio services. API Keys are credentials you can create and revoke in the Twilio Console. API Keys are typically safer to work with in your Twilio projects. You can quickly delete them to revoke access if they become compromised and create a fresh API key for different use cases - so, if you need to turn off a specific use case for some reason, you can just delete the API key!
To enable authorization and start building your automation projects, complete the following:
For reference, below is how we created an API Key for our examples.
- Sign in to the Twilio console using your account credentials.
- Navigate to API Keys under the settings tab of the Dashboard
- Click the + icon to create a new API Key
- Give the key a friendly name, this is a helpful reminder of how this key is being used in case you need to revoke it later.
- Click Create API Key
- After you create the key, a Success window appears with the API Key SID and Secret.
- Take note of these values, you'll need them when you add the Twilio Scope activity to your projects.
- Create a new automation project.
- Open UiPath Studio.
- Under New Project, click Process (this opens a New Blank Process window).
- Enter a project Name, Location, and Description.
- Click Create.
- Install the UiPath.Twilio.Activities package.
- In the Design ribbon, click Manage Packages (this opens the Manage Packages window).
- Under All Packages, click Go!
- In the Search bar, enter Twilio.
- Click, install and accept the license for the UiPath.Twilio.Activities.
- For more information about Uipath Studio packages, see Managing Packages in the Studio Guide.
I'm getting an error using the package, what do I do?
You may be missing a dependency. Ensure that the nuget.org, https://api.nuget.org/v3/index.json package source is enabled for your project
Now that you have completed the setup, you can start adding the Twilio activities to your project.
For a hands-on learning experience and to quickly start using the activities, see the Quickstart guides. 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 activity list and links to the activity detail pages.
