Front/SignalWire Channel

Create a WebhookDB/SignalWire SMS channel in Front to manage your SMS messages alongside all your other channels. Instant, two-way sync with SignalWire means that you can send, receive, and reply to SMS messages directly from Front.

This channel only takes a couple minutes to set up:

  • Go to and sign up or log in.
    • Run webhookdb auth login and follow the prompts.
  • Create a Signalwire Message integration, so your SignalWire SMS will sync into your WebhookDB replication table.
    • Run webhookdb integrations create signalwire_message_v1 and follow the prompts.
  • Create the Front/SignalWire Channel.
    • Run webhookdb integrations create front_signalwire_message_channel_app_v1 and follow the prompts.
    • You will get an API token at the end (starting with sk), which you’ll need to input into Front.
  • Finally, add the Front Channel.
    • In Front, to to Settings -> Company -> Channels -> Connect a Channel
    • Find the ‘WebhookDB/SignalWire’ channel, and press Connect
    • For ‘Name’, use what you like.
    • For ‘Token’, use the token from the previous step.
    • Finish the channel setup (choose an inbox, etc).

Whenever you send a message via Front, it will be sent via SignalWire within a few seconds. Whenever an SMS comes in through SignalWire, it will be imported into Front within 60 seconds.

Changing the SignalWire Phone Number

Run webhookdb integration reset front_signalwire_message_channel_app_v1. You will be prompted for the new phone number.

Note that the last 2 days of inbound messages to this phone number will be automatically synced into Front.

Rolling the API Key

Run webhookdb integration roll-key front_signalwire_message_channel_app_v1. The old API key will be replaced with a new key.

You must copy the new key and update your Channel settings in Front.
