AlphaSender Resource

Public Beta
Twilio's Messaging Services API is currently available as a Public Beta product. Some features are not yet implemented and others may be changed before the product is declared as Generally Available.
Public Beta products are not covered by a Twilio SLA.

The AlphaSender is a subresource of a Service resource and represents an Alphanumeric Sender ID (alpha sender) you have associated with the Service.

When an alpha sender has been added to the Messaging Service, Copilot will always attempt to prioritize message delivery with your Alpha Sender where possible.

Each Messaging Services may only have one alpha sender associated with it. To change the Alpha Sender ID, you must first delete the current alpha sender before adding the new one.

This subresource is only available to Accounts in which the Alphanumeric Sender ID is enabled.
