Use the Twilio SMS Connector

Add the twilio_sms connector on your Zenaton dashboard,
enter the credentials and authorize Zenaton to call the twilio_sms API from your workflows.
Then add code snippet and URL path to your workflow.

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");

module.exports = workflow("MyWorkflow", function* () {
const twilio_sms = this.connector(
'twilio_sms', 'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard');

const response = yield twilio_sms.get('path_to_API');
yield twilio_sms.post('path_to_API', {param1: '...'});
});

The Zenaton Engine

We handle the complexity of orchestrating Twilio SMS API calls and related logic in your code.

Out of the Box API Call

Add the connector to your Zenaton workflow and we manage the authentication, oauth1 and oauth2 flow including token refreshing.

Automatic Retries & Alerting

If your Twilio SMS API call fails, it can automatically be retried and you will receive an alert with error details.

Monitoring and Troubleshooting

View the Zenaton dashboard for execution history, scheduled tasks, errors and logs or retry failed Twilio SMS API calls.

Integrate Twilio SMS into your application logic

The Zenaton connector is a pre-configured task for calling the Twilio SMS API inside your workflow with one line of code. Build custom integration logic by adding a workflow directly into your application using the functions in the Zenaton SDK.

// The Zenaton engine orchestrates twilio sms API calls and related logic via the Zenaton agent. Every step is executed at the right moment on your servers and monitored on Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow } = require("zenaton");

// execute parallel tasks handled automatically by the Zenaton engine 
  const [a, b] = yield this.run.task(["TaskA"],["TaskB"]);
