The Sync REST API

The Sync REST API allows you to control your Sync applications from backend servers in much the same way you can from the client. You can create, update and manage your documents, lists and maps using these resources.

API Base URL

All URLs in the reference documentation use the following base URL:

https://sync.twilio.com/v1

All requests to the Sync REST API are served over HTTPS. Unencrypted HTTP is not supported.

Authentication

HTTP requests to the REST API are protected with HTTP Basic authentication like other REST APIs provided by Twilio. To learn more about how Twilio handles authentication, please refer to our security documentation. In short, you will use your Twilio account SID as the username and your auth token as the password for HTTP Basic authentication.

curl -G https://sync.twilio.com/v1/Services \
    -u '[YOUR ACCOUNT SID]:[YOUR AUTH TOKEN]'

You can find your account SID and auth token in the admin console. Alternately, you can also use API keys and secrets to authenticate REST API requests - you can manage API key pairs in the console also.
