Hi,

We are using Nexmo as SMS provider to send us alerts from Pingdom and similar services. How can we use it with PRTG to send us SMS?

Nexmo are providing API for SMS

Hi there,

Based on what I've seen so far the link for Nexmo should look like this: https://rest.nexmo.com/sms/json -d api_key=API_KEY -d api_secret=API_SECRET -d to=YOUR_NUMBER --data-urlencode "text=Hello from nexmo." -d from=NEXMO_NUMBER

Try this with filled parameters and use it in your browser first. If that works, you can set it up in PRTG as SMS delivery using the Custom URL option.

Kind regards,

Erhard

Hi,

From the browser it is working, however when I place it at "Custom URL", it does not work.

We send successfully using Nexmo. Here is the URL query we use.

https://rest.nexmo.com/sms/json?api_key=<API KEY>&api_secret=<API SECRET>&from=<10-DIGIT NUMBER>&to=%SMSNUMBER&text=%SMSTEXT

Obviously replace what's in <> with the values from your Nexmo account.

%SMSNUMBER and %SMSTEXT is replaced with values provided by PRTG based on the recipient and what the message contains.
