Subscription Resource


You can use the Subscriptions API to subscribe to specific Twilio events and versions, and manage your subscriptions.

With the Subscriptions API you can:

  • Create new Subscriptions.
  • Fetch a specific Subscription.
  • Fetch a list of Subscriptions.
  • Update a Subscription.
  • Delete a Subscription.

A subscription is comprised of a set of pairs of Event Types and Schema versions that can be modified using the SubscribedEvents API.
