You must first request access to the API from your Skycore account manager. Once the API is turned on, you can find your API Key in the API Settings page under your Account’s API Settings.
POST Request – with JSON data requests.
POST JSON – to the Postback URL defined in your Account’s API Settings page. Postback notifications are forwarded to your server individually every second and require an HTTP STATUS 200 response.
We expect your server to accept our postback within 10 seconds by responding with a standard HTTP STATUS 200 header (success). If establishing a connection to your Postback URL takes longer than 10 seconds, the connection will time out and be dropped. If the connection times out or the HTTP code is not 200 we will retry the notification again five minutes later for a maximum of 5 retries per notification.
You may have a throughput limit on your account. If your API requests exceed the throughput on your account then you may have some latency in the delivery of your messages. There may also be limits on the number of API calls allowed per second/minute/day. These limits will be published in your API Settings page.
Authenticating your API call can be done in two ways:
apikey – Each API request must contain the accounts API KEY.
Authentication Error codes: E100, E103, E104, E105, E109.
Error JSON Example:
"error-info": "Invalid request. Please make a valid JSON POST request with all the required variables."
Always Use International Number Format: You must use international format when sending SMS or MMS. International format includes both the country code with the phone number. We use the country code to determine routing of the message. There should be no dialing prefixes (eg no 00 or 001) or special characters such as the plus symbol. (e.g. no ‘+642111111′)
For example the US number (774)-319-9144 in international number format would be 17743199144 because the USA country code is 1.
