Twilio Query Authentication Guide

Twilio Query Authentication Guide


Overview

This is a step-by-step guide to acquiring credentials and authorising the Twilio Query connector for use in Matillion ETL.

Important Information

  • The Twilio Query connector uses an API token for third-party authentication.
  • While connector properties may differ between Cloud Data Warehouses, the authentication process remains the same.

Acquiring Third-Party Credentials

  1. Navigate to the Twilio website, then click LOG IN. The browser will redirect to a sequence of login screens. Enter valid login credentials to continue.

    Please Note

    To create a new project, click Create New Project at the bottom of the project menu, then follow the prompts to add products, give the project a name and invite teammates. After creating the new project, the browser should redirect to the new project's dashboard.
