Owned by Vonage, Nexmo allows you to programmatically send and receive SMS in practically every country through their API.
In order to connect Nexmo to your Space, you will need the following:
Under the Numbers section of the sidebar, select "Buy numbers".
In the search fields, select the options that you need. Note that you may want to pick a country where most of your contacts will be located. Be sure that your number will be able to support SMS.
Once you have completed the fields, press the blue "Search" button. Nexmo will display a list of available virtual phone numbers based on your criteria.
From the list of numbers, find one to your liking and press its respective orange "Buy" button and validate your purchase. A new dialog should open asking you to confirm your purchase.
Confirm the purchase of your virtual phone number by pressing the orange "Buy" button.
Under the Channel Connection menu, select the Nexmo logo and press the blue "Next" button.
Once you have done so, you should be asked for the Channel Name, Greeting Message, and other fields specific to Nexmo.
Enter a suitable name for the new channel. Note that the Channel Name is private and will only be used within the Rocketbots Platform.
You may enter an optional Greeting Message. This will be shown when a new member of your audience first contacts you.
In the Nexmo Phone Number field, enter the virtual phone number that you purchased from Nexmo.
If you do not remember the number, you can navigate to the Your Numbers page under the Numbers section on the sidebar of Nexmo.
On the Your Numbers page, you can find a list of all of your virtual numbers.
On the Nexmo Dashboard, navigate to the Settings page. Under your account section, select "Settings".
On the Nexmo Settings page, you can find the API Key and the API secret. Copy these and paste them into their respective fields on the Rocketbots Platform.
Once you have filled in the fields on the Rocketbots Platform, you will have to paste the Webhook URL into Nexmo.
Go back to the Your Numbers page on Nexmo. Find the virtual phone that you are connecting to Rocketbots and press its configure button under the "Manage" column. Look for the button with the cog icon.
Paste the Webhook URL from the Rocketbots Platform into the SMS "Inbound Webhook URL" field.
Once you have done so, press the blue "Ok" button.
Return to the Rocketbots Platform and press the blue "Done" button. Your Space will now be connected to your Nexmo virtual phone!
