Hello,

this list cannot be edited or changed. If you use another SMS-provider, please try using the Custom URL for a provider not listed (which means the provider needs to support an HTTP API).

Best Regards.

Clickatell

I was unable to get the standard Clickatell sms option working What did work for me was to use the Custom URL like this : http://api.clickatell.com/http/sendmsg?user=xxxxx&password=xxxx&api_id=xxx&to=xxxx&text=%SMSTEXT

When choosing Clickatell as provider from the list, PRTG uses an https connection.

SMS Global

One of our customers told us the correct URL for provider "SMS Global" has to be in the format:

http://www.smsglobal.com.au/http-api.php?action=sendsms&user=USER&password=PASSWORD&from=SENDER&to=%SMSNUMBER&text=%SMSTEXT

For detailed documentation about their SMS API, please see http://smsglobal.com/en-au/technology/sms_integration.php

Has anybody configured PRTG to send out SMS via Twilio? Cannot figure out the custom URL.

As their API requires POST (iirc), it currently cannot be used with the Custom URL. We're implementing it, though. In the meantime, you should use PowerShell's Invoke-WebRequest in a script, as EXE notification :)


Kind regards,

@Stephan Linke, any update on being able to use custom URL with Twilio? We would like to avoid using Powershell. Thanks!

Is there any chance of at least supporting a POST request? Twilio appears to want a POST request for sending SMS, which prevents PRTG from sending directly to Twilio even with the custom URL option

Hi there,

Via the SMS Option it might not be possible, but you can utilize the HTTP Action instead. There you can use POST as request method.

Best regards.

Hi there,

I can't tell you as we don't have a Twilio-Account at hand. However there seems to be a script-based solution that can be found here:
https://github.com/AdamCLarsen/PRTG-TwilioPager

Right now there are no plans to include Twilio into PRTG, due to the rather low amount of requests for this.

Best regards.
