UserDefinedMessageSubscription Resource


(information)

Info

This feature is in Public Beta.

See the Voice SDK Call Message Events page for more information.

A UserDefinedMessageSubscription Resource is a Call subresource that represents a subscription to user-defined messages sent from the Voice SDK. You must create a UserDefinedMessageSubscription Resource in order to receive messages from the Voice SDK.

A UserDefinedMessageSubscription Resource can only be created during an active Call associated with the Voice SDK.

Your Voice SDK application must be configured to send messages. Read more about sending and receiving Voice SDK messages on the Voice SDK Call Message Events page.

Create a UserDefinedMessageSubscription Resource

create-a-userdefinedmessagesubscription-resource page anchor
POST https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/{AccountSid}/Calls/{CallSid}/UserDefinedMessageSubscriptions.json

You need to subscribe to a Call's user-defined messages in order to receive messages from the Voice SDK. You do this by creating a UserDefinedMessageSubscription Resource for that Call SID.

You must have an endpoint that can handle POST or GET requests with a Content-Type of application/json. You specify this endpoint in the Callback parameter when creating your UserDefinedMessageSubscription, and this is where Twilio will send requests containing the messages from the Voice SDK.

Use the appropriate Call SID in the path of your POST request. Use the parent Call SID if you wish to send a message to parent Call leg. Use the child Call SID if you wish to send a message to the child Call leg.

See the Voice SDK Overview page for more information on Voice SDK Call legs.
