Monitor REST API: Alerts

An Alert instance resource represents a single log entry for an error or warning encountered when Twilio makes a webhook request to your server, or when your application makes a request to the REST API. These can be very useful for debugging purposes, and you can configure new Alerts to notify you by email or webhook using Monitor Alert Triggers.

Alert properties

SPECIAL NOTE: Unlike other areas of this REST API, the representation of an Alert instance is different from the Alert representations within responses from the list resource. Due to the potentially voluminous amount of data in an alert, the full HTTP request and response data is only returned in the Alert instance resource representation.

account_sid
sid<AC> Not PII

The unique id of the Account responsible for this alert.

alert_text
string Not PII

The text of the alert.

api_version
string Not PII

The version of the Twilio API in use when this alert was generated. May be empty for events that don't have a specific API version.

date_created
date_time<iso8601> Not PII

The date that this resource was created, given in ISO 8601 format.

date_generated
date_time<iso8601> Not PII

The date the alert was actually generated, given in ISO 8601 format. Due to buffering, this may be slightly different than the DateCreated date.

date_updated
date_time<iso8601> Not PII

The most recent date that this resource was updated, given in ISO 8601 format.

error_code
string Not PII

A unique error code for the error condition. You can lookup errors, with possible causes and solutions, in our Error Dictionary.

log_level
string Not PII

A string representing the log level. One of 'error', 'warning', 'notice', or 'debug'.

more_info
string Not PII

A URL for more information about the error condition. The URL is a page in our Error Dictionary.

request_method
http_method Not PII

If the Alert was generated by a request Twilio made to your server, this will be the request method used when Twilio made the request to your server. If the Alert was generated by a request from your application to Twilio's API, this will be the request method your application used in the request to the API.

request_url
uri Not PII

If the Alert was generated by a request Twilio made to your server, this will be the URL on your server that generated the alert. If the Alert was generated by a request from your application to Twilio's API, this will be the URL of the resource in Twilio's API.

resource_sid
sid Not PII

The unique ID of the resource for which the Alert was generated. For instance, if your server failed to respond to an HTTP request during the flow of a particular call, this will be the ID for the call that failed. Empty if the Alert was generated without respect to a particular resource.

sid
sid<NO> Not PII

A 34 character string that uniquely identifies this Alert.
