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.

Names in REST API format
account_sid
sid<AC> Not PII

The SID of the Account that created the Alert resource.

alert_text
string Not PII

The text of the alert.

api_version
string Not PII

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

date_created
date_time<iso8601> Not PII

The date and time in GMT when the resource was created specified in ISO 8601 format.

date_generated
date_time<iso8601> Not PII

The date and time in GMT when the alert was generated specified in ISO 8601 format. Due to buffering, this can be different than date_created.

date_updated
date_time<iso8601> Not PII

The date and time in GMT when the resource was last updated specified in ISO 8601 format.

error_code
string Not PII

The error code for the condition that generated the alert. See the Error Dictionary for possible causes and solutions to the error.

request_method

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.

request_url
uri Not PII

The URL of the request that generated the alert. If the alert was generated by a request we made to your server, this is the URL on your server that generated the alert. If the alert was generated by a request from your application to our API, this is the URL of the resource requested.

resource_sid
sid 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.
