Chatbot Connector Services


The service allows Syniverse Cloud messaging customer to leverage SCG (Syniverse Communication Gateway) message delivery channels and provide connectivity to external entities which expose messaging APIs and for which this service has a corresponding API module (or plugin) in place.

Syniverse Connector Service

The Syniverse Connector service provides Customers Chatbot Service accounts hosted on Cloud platforms a dedicated connector that allows them to create and enable a Syniverse messaging channel for their Bot services to communicate with their end-users.

The service will provide REST endpoint “connectors” where the user will be able to do CRUD operations for its connectors. The connector entity will contain configuration information needed for the corresponding service to function.



After this time with no MO the conversation will be considered finished and will be closed. Subsequent message from the same user will open a new conversation.

Connector Service Integration

Connector service is now available for the following services:

  • MS Azure Cloud Connector

The connector service is able to translate session-oriented APIs like the Direct Link into paging-oriented APIs by emulating session behavior based on a Syniverse Sender ID, end-user contact (MDN) and time.

The service can also be used with a wide range of Syniverse Messaging Channels that are IP-based but also can be used on SMS services. The connector service supports text-based conversation with the channels listed below. Images and rich media payloads are currently not supported.

Syniverse Messaging Channels for Connectors

The Syniverse Messaging channels that can be leveraged on the Syniverse connector service include:

  • SMS
  • WhatsApp

Prerequisite to using the Syniverse Connector service

  • Syniverse Cloud Messaging Account with a subscription to Voice and Messaging service ( )
  • A valid Dedicated Sender ID (Can be a Shortcode, Longcode, or toll-free number. Can also be a Sender ID configured for WhatsApp, RCS, WeChat or Facebook Messenger).

Creating a Connector service in SCG

Creating a MS Azure Chatbot Connector


In order to create the connector an active private SenderID  is needed. Once the senderId is available use following curl to create the connector:

curl -X POST H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H "Authorization: Bearer {Token}" 

-d '{"type":"AZURE_BOT_DIRECT_LINE","sender_id":"Uu4txaiKbAWjMN8427QEM2","credentials":"ZrVkDm7_F24.cwA.BEs.Sz0w9A3HT1jhIo67glktyW4wz73y6J_Hd810FP6eFTpQ","external_id":"Test123"}'


  • Sender ID: Uu4txaiKbAWjMN8427QEM2 (SMS-Capable Sender ID)
  • Credentials: Your MS Azure Bot Secret Key
  • External ID: Optional unique identifier


You will receive a <ConnectorID> as response to a successful request.

Interacting with your Bot

  • Send a MO (Mobile Originated) message to your Sender Address which will be passed to your BOT
  • If your BOT responds, the messages will be delivered to the Mobile device

Other activities you can invoke on the connector service

  • List a Connector
curl -X GET<ConnectorID> -H "Authorization: Bearer {Token}"
  • List all your Connectors
curl -X GET -H "Authorization: Bearer {Token}"
  • Update a Connector
curl -X POST<ConnectorID> -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H "Authorization: Bearer {Token}" -d '{"sender_id":"my-updated-sender-id","credentials":"update-credentials","external_id":"changed-id-assigned-by-me","version_number":"1"}
  • Delete a connector
curl -X DELETE<ConnectorID> -H "Authorization: Bearer {Token}"
