Join us in San Francisco on the 29/30th of October for two days of developer workshops and technical talks

List Your Numbers

This page shows you how to list the numbers that you own programmatically.

You can also view your numbers online, using the developer dashboard or from the command line, using the Nexmo CLI.

Replace the following variables in the sample code with your own values:

Name Description
NEXMO_API_KEY Your Nexmo API key
NEXMO_API_SECRET Your Nexmo API secret
COUNTRY_CODE The two digit country code for the number you want to cancel. For example: GB for the United Kingdom.
NUMBER_SEARCH_CRITERIA The filter criteria. For example, numbers containing 234.
NUMBER_SEARCH_PATTERN Where the NUMBER_SEARCH_CRITERIA should appear in the number:
  • 0 - At the beginning of the number
  • 1- Anywhere in the number
  • 2 - At the end of the number

Write the code

Add the following to search-numbers.sh:

Copy to Clipboard
curl "https://rest.nexmo.com/number/search?api_key=$NEXMO_API_KEY&api_secret=$NEXMO_API_SECRET&country=$COUNTRY_CODE&type=$NEXMO_NUMBER_TYPE&features=$NEXMO_NUMBER_FEATURES&pattern=$NUMBER_SEARCH_CRITERIA&search_pattern=$NUMBER_SEARCH_PATTERN"

Run your code

We can use the application plugin for Gradle to simplify the running of our application. Update your build.gradle with the following:

apply plugin: 'application'
mainClassName = project.hasProperty('main') ? project.getProperty('main') : ''

Run the following gradle command to execute your application, replacing com.nexmo.quickstart.numbers with the package containing ListNumbers:

gradle run -Pmain=com.nexmo.quickstart.numbers.ListNumbers
