You require an activation key to use this App. Visit http://www.baboonbones.com/#activation to obtain a non-expiring key

Once your Twilio account is setup you will then be able to obtain your Auth Token and Account SID from your profile.

To enter these values in Splunk , just browse to Settings -> Alert Actions -> Twilio SMS Alerts -> Setup Twilio SMS Alerting


Perform a search in Splunk and then navigate to : Save As -> Alert -> Trigger Actions -> Add Actions -> Twilio SMS Alerts

On this dialogue you can enter your "from number", "to number" and "SMS message"

"to number" can also be a comma delimited list of numbers

For the SMS message field , token substitution can be used just the same as for email alerts.



Browse to : Settings -> Alert Actions -> Twilio SMS Alerts -> View Log Events

Or you can search directly in Splunk : index=_internal sourcetype=splunkd component=sendmodalert action="twilio"


1) Is your "from number" correct and valid for sending SMS messages via Twilio ?
2) Are your alerts actually firing ?
3) Are your Auth token and Account SID correct ?
