Overview

Using this method template messages can be sent to a single subscriber. Messages also can be sent to multiple subscribers but all should belong to the same group. Templates reside in the Group level.

Notes:

A user (APIKey account) can make up to 10 parallel requests or use multiple threads concurrently.

For sending messages, a limit of 100 messages per request is Recommended.

 

Syntax

C#

[OperationContractAttribute()]
SBT.API.DataContracts.MessageCenter.WSMessageResponse SendTemplateMessage(
   string securityToken,
   int templateID,
   List<WSRecipient> sendTo,
   string orgCode,
   string note,
   string statusUrl  
)

Staging: https://test.solutionsbytext.com/Sbt.App.SetUp/WSServices/MessageWSService.svc?singlewsdl

 

Parameters

securityToken

- String[1000] (Required) - SecurityToken to authenticate the user.

templateID

- int (Required) – Active Template ID for the message to be sent.

sendTo

- List <WSRecipient> (Required) - Recipient contains collection sentTo and customfields.
* SendTo - String[20] (Required) - SentTo for the subscriber (mobile phone number).
* List <CustomFields> (Optional) - Customfields contains collection of key - value pairs.

orgCode

- String[20] (Required) - Organization Code for the Group that the message will be sent to .

note

- String[500] (Optional) - This is a custom ID which is used to track the message transaction.

statusUrl

- String[200] (Optional) - Status URL that can be used to post message status information to a file.

 

Return Value

WSMessageResponse
NameTypeDescription
Result bool True/False whether the call was successful or not.
ErrorCode int For Success/Failure it will generate an errror number
Message string Message related to the error code
TransactionTicket string ID created from message; this can be used in the 'Get Message Status' function to check the delivery status of the message.
Note string Note created from message; this can be used in the 'Get MessageStatusByNote' function to check the delivery status of the message.

 

Developer Tips

The SendTemplateMessage method includes an optional Note parameter. The Note field enables clients to pass data in conjunction with a message delivery attempt. When sending a message to an array of phone numbers, the note is associated with all messages in the request.

Examples of Note field utilization include:

  • Branch location associated with the customer account
  • Customer segmentation identifier
  • Combinations of data to uniquely identify the messages sent to customers

If a client Status URL is provided, the Note field data is posted to the client's Status URL with each real-time message delivery status update.

When the subscriber replies to the message, the Note field data will be posted to the client's Callback URL (if provided) along with the subscriber's response in real-time as well.

The Note field can be used with the GetMessageStatusByNote method to retrieve the status of sent messages using the Note data.

In addition, the API response when invoking SendTemplateMessage() includes a TransactionTicket. The TransactionTicket is unique for that request. The TransactionTicket issued for the request can be used with the GetMessageStatus method to retrieve the status of sent messages using the TransactionTicket.

 

Examples

C#

 MessageClient messageResult = new MessageClient("MessageWSServiceHttpEndpoint");
    string securityToken = txtToken.Text;
    int templateID;
    Int32.TryParse(txtTemplateID.Text,out templateID);

    //Create custom fields             
        List<CustomField> customFields = new List<CustomField>();
        CustomField customField = new CustomField();
        customField.Key = txtKey.Text;
        customField.Value = txtValue.Text;
        customFields.Add(customField);


    //Create recipients  
        List<WSRecipient> recipients = new List<WSRecipient>();
        WSRecipient recipient = new WSRecipient();
        recipient.SendTo = txtMobile.Text;
        recipient.CustomFields = customFields.ToArray();
        recipients.Add(recipient);

        string orgCode = txtOrgCode.Text;

        string note = txtNote.Text;
        string statusUrl = txtStatusURL.Text;

    WSMessageResponse wSMessageResponse = messageResult.SendTemplateMessage(securityToken, templateID, recipients.ToArray(), orgCode, note, statusUrl);
    //process response  
        if (!wSMessageResponse.Result)
            {
                //handle error
