Retrieve Call Logs with Java

In this guide we'll learn how to retrieve information about in progress and completed calls from your Twilio account using Java.

We’ll use Twilio’s Java SDK in these examples to interact with the Twilio REST APIs Calls endpoint.

The first thing we'll need to get started is your Twilio account credentials.

Retrieve your Twilio account credentials

First, you'll need to get your Twilio account credentials. They consist of your AccountSid and your Auth Token. They can be found on the home page of the console.

Retrieving call logs

You can use Twilio’s REST API to retrieve logs about the phone calls to and from your Twilio account. If you just want to check a couple logs, however, you should try looking at the voice logs in your Twilio console first.

To list all phone calls for your Twilio account, just call Call.reader().read() and iterate over it.

The read method automatically handles paging for you, fetching new pages as you iterate through Call objects. For more information, visit the Java Helper Library page.

        
        
        

        List All Calls Example

        You can also filter the results. This example only returns phone calls to the phone number "+15558675309" which had a call status of "busy" but you can filter on other call properties as well.

              
              
              

              Retrieve Busy Calls To Specific Number Example

              Finally, if you just want to retrieve information about a specific call you can get that CallSid directly.

                    
                    
                    

                    Retrieve Call By Id Example

                    Where to next?

                    We just learned how to retrieve Twilio call logs using Java. Check out our tutorials to see full implementations of Twilio Voice in Java.
