TwiML™ Voice: <Redirect>

The <Redirect> verb transfers control of a call to the TwiML at a different URL. All verbs after <Redirect> are unreachable and ignored.

Verb Attributes

The <Redirect> verb supports the following attributes that modify its behavior:

Attribute Name Allowed Values Default Value


The 'method' attribute takes the value 'GET' or 'POST'. This tells Twilio whether to request the <Redirect> URL via HTTP GET or POST. 'POST' is the default.

Use it in a <Redirect> verb like so:



        The "noun" of a TwiML verb is the stuff nested within the verb that's not a verb itself; it's the stuff the verb acts upon. These are the nouns for <Redirect>:

        Noun TwiML Interpretation
        plain text An absolute or relative URL for a different TwiML document.

        Nesting Rules

        No verbs can be nested within <Redirect> and <Redirect> can't be nested in any other verbs.


        Example 1: Absolute URL Redirect

        In this example, we have a <Redirect> verb after a <Dial> verb with no URL. When the <Dial> verb finishes, the <Redirect> executes. <Redirect> makes a request to and transfers the call flow to the TwiML received in response to that request.


              Example 2: Relative URL Redirect

              Redirects call flow control to the TwiML at a URL relative to the current URL.
