How to Generate an API-x Token

  31 January 2017

API-x, the only SMS API that delivers to DND phone numbers, is a token based API for sending SMS. The token system provides better security since it can be used without the fear of revealing your login credentials.

API-x tokens are free and can be used as frequently as needed. To get a token you will need to sign-up for an account. If you already have an account you can follow the steps below to generate a token

1. Visit https://smartsmssolutions.com/sms/api-x-tokens

2. Click on the “Create New API Token” Button. The Token creation form will be revealed.

3. Fill in the required details

Title

A 25 characters word to identify the API. Any alphanumeric word is allowed.

Description

A short description of choice to provide better explanation for the use of the token. This might explain the purpose of the TOKEN, where it will be used and who will be using it.

Expires

If you want the token to expire after a period time, specify the date here or leave blank to use perpetually.

Check Balance

This option is to be set to "Yes" if you want the token to be able to retrieve the SMS balance. This might be necessary if you will be using the TOKEN in a client environment and you will not want them to have access to your SMS balance, then you will set it to "NO"
