How do I find the Vonage SMS Message ID?
- SMS API
You can find the Vonage Message ID by:
- Parsing the 'message-id' value, returned to you in the API response
- Asynchronously, via Delivery Receipt Webhooks
- The Vonage API Dashboard
To find the Message ID via the Vonage API Dashboard, navigate to the Logs > SMS Logs section. Narrow your search results by adjusting the Time range or Phone number fields.
Vonage SMS Message IDs currently have 2 formats: Hexadecimal and RFC 4122 compliant Universally Unique Identifier (UUID).
HTTP customers can receive hexadecimal (example: 34000000077DC588) and UUID format (example: 645539e7-aac2-4499-9d92-d4769a5f9554).
SMPP customers can receive hexadecimal (example: 34000000077DC588) and UUID without dashes format (example: 12fc7f681ced41a4bfc57d0ddf5c2f4e)
Please note, Hexadecimal Message IDs will be deprecated in 2023 and superseded by UUIDs. We recommend customers do not validate or limit the length of the Message ID within their applications to avoid any unexpected impact.
