Twilio Connector

Version 15



Twilio is a cloud communications company that allows developers to programmatically make and receive phone calls and send and receive text messages using its web service APIs. You can use the Domo Twilio connector to retrieve data on accounts, calls, conferences, notifications, SMS messages, and usage records. For more information about the Twilio API, go to

The Twilio connector is a "Cloud App" connector, meaning it retrieves data stored in the cloud. In the Data Center, you can access the connector page for this and other Cloud App connectors by clicking Cloud App in the toolbar at the top of the window.

This version of the connector differs from the advanced version in that it provides no date filtering capabilities. It simply pulls in all available data. For information about the advanced version, see Twilio Advanced Connector.

This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Twilio connector user interface. For general information about adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information, see Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Best Practices

One account can own only 1000 subaccounts by default. For more, you must mail Twilio at


To connect to your Twilio account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • A Twilio account SID.

  • A Twilio auth token.

You can find both of these items in your Twilio account settings page, in the API Credentials section. For more information, see  

Connecting to Your Twilio Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Twilio Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Twilio account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  



Account SID

Enter your Twilio account SID. 

Auth Token 

Enter your Twilio auth token. 

After you have entered valid Twilio credentials, you can use the same account in Domo any time you create a Twilio DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary Report menu in which you select a report type, as well as other fields and menus that appear, depending on the selected report.

Other Panes

For information about the remaining sections of the connector interface, including how to configure scheduling, retry, and update options, see Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.


How frequently will my data update? 

As often as needed.

Are there any API limits I should be aware of? 

Twilio may limit API calls. To prevent rate limiting, reduce the number of DataSets scheduled to run at the same time.

Can I use the same Twilio account for multiple DataSets? 



  • Double-check your credentials.

  • Log into Twilio and check the dashboard for data.
