To begin utilizing your Bandwidth Dashboard numbers for V2 Voice APIs, you’ll first need to create a Voice Application and then associate it with your phone number’s Location.

  1. Log into the Bandwidth Dashboard using your user name and password
  2. Create a Sub-Account. If you already have a Sub-Account that you want to associate with this application, you can skip this step. However, if you want to create a new Sub-Account for this specific application, you can follow the steps outlined in our support article

  1. Click 'Applications’ in the top navigation menu

 

  1. Enter the name for the application (it’s recommended to use something that identifies what the application will do)
  2. Under “Application type”, select ‘Voice’ (Note: once your application is created, you won’t be able to change application type)
  3. Mark the ‘Use a callback username and password’ checkbox if you’d like to use a callback username and password (Note: your password won’t be visible after leaving this screen. Store it securely for your use or return here to create a new one)
  4. Select a call initiated callback method (‘GET’ or ‘POST’) 
  5. Optional: Select a call status callback method (‘GET’ or ‘POST’). 
  6. Provide a call initiated callback URL (invoked when a call is initiated)
  7. Optional: Provide a call status callback URL (currently this is invoked when a call is terminated, but other status events may be added in the future)
  8. Enter callback user ID and callback password (if you checked the box in step 6). These credentials will be used by your server to authenticate callbacks
  9. Click ’Create Application’

Next, you’ll associate your new Location with your Voice Application.

 

  1. Click ‘Account’ and then select ‘Locations’

 

  1. Select your Sub account
  2. Provide a uniquely identifiable Location name
  3. Optional: Add a Description
  4. From here, change your Voice Protocol to ‘HTTP Voice’
  5. Select an Associated Voice Application that you previously created.
  6. Adjust all other settings per your desired specifications.
  7. Click ’Create Location’
