Monitor REST API: Alerts


An Alert resource instance 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 email or webhook notifications using Alarms(link takes you to an external page).


Alert Properties

alert-properties page anchor
(warning)

Warning

The maximum number of Alert resources you can fetch per request to this API is 10,000.

(warning)

Warning

Unlike other parts of the REST API, the representation of an Alert instance is different from the Alert representations within responses from the list resource. Due to the potentially very large amount of data in an alert, the full HTTP request and response data is only returned in the Alert instance resource representation.

Resource properties
account_sidtype: SID<AC>Not PII

The SID of the Account(link takes you to an external page) that created the Alert resource.


alert_texttype: stringNot PII

The text of the alert.


api_versiontype: stringNot PII

The API version used when the alert was generated. Can be empty for events that don't have a specific API version.


date_createdtype: string<DATE TIME>Not PII

The date and time in GMT when the resource was created specified in ISO 8601(link takes you to an external page) format.


date_generatedtype: string<DATE TIME>Not PII

The date and time in GMT when the alert was generated specified in ISO 8601(link takes you to an external page) format. Due to buffering, this can be different than date_created.


date_updatedtype: string<DATE TIME>Not PII

The date and time in GMT when the resource was last updated specified in ISO 8601(link takes you to an external page) format.


error_codetype: stringNot PII

The error code for the condition that generated the alert. See the Error Dictionary(link takes you to an external page) for possible causes and solutions to the error.

The log level. Can be: error, warning, notice, or debug.

The URL of the page in our Error Dictionary(link takes you to an external page) with more information about the error condition.


request_methodtype: enum<HTTP METHOD>Not PII

The method used by the request that generated the alert. If the alert was generated by a request we made to your server, this is the method we used. If the alert was generated by a request from your application to our API, this is the method your application used.

resource_sidtype: SID<[A>Not PII

The SID 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 value would be the SID of the server. This value is empty if the alert was not generated for a particular resource.
