Advanced Functionality

In your app's Cloud Flow Web Hooks and Background Tasks, the Custom Code block can be used to access and implement advanced functionality related to the Twilio messaging service.
To access the Twilio client initialized with credentials saved on this Twilio service connection, see the following example:
// To use a twilio client initialized with credentials provided
// in a Twilio connection
const client = zingyConn.twilio(connectionName);
You may also initialize a seperate Twilio client, by specifying account credentials directly:
// To create a new twilio client specifying account credentials
const client = require('twilio')(accountSid, authToken);
After the client object is initialized, you can use it to call into the Twilio library. Refer to Twilio library documentation for more information.
