Forwarding Messages To A URL

February 12, 2020

To forward all your messages to a URL:

  1. From the left navigation panel, click Advanced Features
  2. Next, click API.
  3. Under Forwarding API, check Enable Forwarding and enter the URL you want to forward all your messages to in the Forward Incoming Messages To This URL field.
  4. Click Save Changes.

All replies to your inbox will be forwarding to the URL you specify. The Bitovation Corp SMS Server will push received SMS messages by making an HTTP GET to the provided URL.
Example URL:

Example Request Sent:
We will send an HTTP GET request to your server, using the parameters:
from - 10 digit phone number message originated from.
message - the body of receiving message that was texted in by the originating phone number.

Example Request Sent:

Send unique request: Check this if you have both keyword URL and forwarding URLs setup and you do not wish to receive duplicate message forwards.
Wait for response from my server: If you require an incoming reply to have an auto-reply, select this option. We will send this response as an auto-reply via HTTP GET and charge 2 credits accordingly.

Please note: If you have a keyword and both the keyword URL and forwarding URLs are setup with the same URL, you should click "Send Unique Request" so we only send one GET request.
