Create a Voice Application

This application requires a Nexmo application and phone numbers. To create the application, use the nexmo app:create command with the Nexmo CLI.

The parameters are:

  • <<APP NAME>> - the name of the voice application
  • <<FILENAME>> - the name of the private key file, in this instance <<FILENAME>> is expected
  • <<ANSWER WEBHOOK>> - the webhook called the Nexmo number receives an inbound call
  • <<EVENT WEBHOOK>> - the webhook called when the call status changes
nexmo app:create --keyfile <<FILENAME>> <<APP NAME>> <<ANSWER WEBHOOK>> <<EVENT WEBHOOK>>

Once completed, this command will return a UUID (Universally Unique Identifier) that identifies your application. Copy and save the UUID for use in an upcoming step.

Link Phone Numbers

You will need to use a phone number already associated with your account, or purchase a new one.

List Phone Numbers

Use this command to list purchased phone numbers associated with your account.

nexmo numbers:list
