            Twilio is not sending WhatsApp messages in real time through AWS Lambda
            Asked 2021-Dec-06 at 07:17

            Sorry for the long post, but it's just to better explain, since english is not my first language.

            I'm using API Gateway + Lambda to send WhatsApp messages though POST requests.

            I have encoutered this weird behavior. It looks like the Twilio needs to "wake up" after 2 requests or a period of time. I have made inputs from "1000", "1001", "1002", until "1018" to test and better understand.

            • When I make resquest 1000 and 1001, I receive nothing on WhatsApp.
            • When I make request 1002, I receive the 1000 message. So I'm always 2 messages behind.
            • I continue until 1011 let's say (I receive messages until 1009). Then I wait around 3 minutes or less.
            • In request 1012 I get "internal server error" in Postman. (sometimes I get this error and sometimes I get a body response, but 1012 is never sent as a message by WhatsApp (read next line for better understand)).
            • But I should get message 1010 (since I'm 2 messages behind), but nothing happenns. The cycle restarts and I never get responses 1010, 1011 or 1012. I should wait until request 1014, to start getting messages.

            What can be happening?

            This is my Lambda code

            Twilio developer evangelist here.

            I believe the issue here is that you are returning from the Lambda before the asynchronous request to the Twilio API is complete. You eventually receive the original requests because AWS seems to pause the event loop when a Lambda is complete and then resumes it when a new Lambda is started again.

            I believe you can solve this by adding the await keyword before the call to the Twilio API.



            How to mock the return value of messages.create() method from twilio-node using sinon js/loopback testlab?
            Asked 2021-Oct-17 at 22:51

            I'm trying to mock the return value of messages.create() method from twilio-node library.

            Since the create method resides inside the interface called messages, i can't directly mock the return value of create method.

            Twilio developer evangelist here.

            I've not worked with testlab/sinon like this before, but I think I have an idea of what you need to do, if not the right syntax.

            You'd need to stub the response to twilioMock.messages to return an object that has a create property that is a stubbed function that resolves to the result you want. Something like this might work, or at least set you on the right track:



            Send customized bulk SMS with twilio
            Asked 2021-Jul-15 at 01:04

            I want to send different messages to multiple users at once. I read the article here: but it mentions nothing about sending customized messages. The only difference in my messages is the user's name.

            The best solution I can think of is to create x number of API calls to send messages to x numbers. I believe that's going to be time taking. Is it possible to do it with one API call?



            Answered 2021-Jul-15 at 01:04

            Twilio developer evangelist, and author of that post, here.

            You are right, there is not currently a Twilio service that allows you to send bulk messages with customised messages with one single API call. You will have to make an API call to the messages resource for each message you want to send.

            When sending messages in bulk, I recommend you read and understand this article on Twilio rate limits and message queues. That will ensure you are successful in sending your messages.



            Inferring the ReturnType<> of a chained function
            Asked 2021-May-29 at 11:33

            Answered 2021-May-29 at 11:33

            I know nothing about Twilio so apologies in advance if I steer you the wrong way, but based on your code, phoneNumbers is a function, not just a property. So you need the return type of the fetch function that's on the return type of twilioClient.lookups.v1.phoneNumbers. Something like:

            Twilio programmable SMS not sending in deployed Lambda function
            Asked 2020-Apr-27 at 01:53

            I am working on a Serverless AWS service that uses Twilio's programmable SMS to deliver text messages.

            My setup is consistently delivering messages successfully when I run the stack locally (e.g. sls offline start), but in the deployed environment I seem to be unable to even call the method on the Twilio client.

            Here's how the message delivery is set up:



            Answered 2020-Apr-27 at 01:53

            I tried this and it works. I tried to make my code as similar to use, with a few changes.
