This ASP.NET sample application demonstrates how to send SMS alerts to a list of system administrators if something goes wrong on your server. In this tutorial, we'll show you the key bits of code to make this work.
Let's get started!
Create a list of administrators who should be notified if a server error occurs.
The only requirement we have is a
In order to send a message we'll need to initialize the Twilio C# Helper
which requires reading our
In an ASP.NET MVC application, we can handle errors at the application level. Note that any other exceptions caught in the code (using your own try/catch blocks) are not being captured and processed here.
Here we create an alert message to send out via text message. You might also decide to include a picture with your alert message, maybe a screenshot of the application when the crash happened?
Next we read the admins from our CSV
file. We use the method
GetRecords to read all the records.
That's it! We've just implemented an automated server notification system that can send you server alerts if anything goes wrong. If you're a C# developer working with Twilio, you might want to check out these other tutorials.
