REST API: Secondary Auth Token


(warning)

Warning

If you are using Services or Functions(Classic) and have included your auth token directly instead of using a variable, you must wait for 1 minute for the update of your auth token to propagate. Otherwise, those functions and services will fail with a 403 Forbidden error.

Twilio uses the Account SID and Auth Token to authenticate API requests. The Auth Token can be rotated in the Console(link takes you to an external page) or with this API. There are two related endpoints, one to promote the secondary Auth Token and this one to create or delete the secondary Auth Token.
