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

Retrieve information for a call

A code snippet that shows how to retrieve information for a call. The call to retrieve information for is identified via a UUID.

Example

Replace the following variables in the example code:

Key Description
UUID The UUID for the call for which information is being requested.

Prerequisites

Use your existing application

To fetch information about a call, you must use the same NEXMO_APPLICATION_ID and private key that were used to create the call.

Generate your JWT

Execute the following command at your terminal prompt to create the JWT for authentication:

export JWT=$(nexmo jwt:generate $PATH_TO_PRIVATE_KEY application_id=$NEXMO_APPLICATION_ID)

Write the code

Add the following to retrieve-info-for-a-call.sh:

Copy to Clipboard
curl "https://api.nexmo.com/v1/calls/"$UUID \
  -H "Authorization: Bearer "$JWT \

Install dependencies

Add the following to build.gradle:

compile 'com.nexmo:client:5.1.0'
Initialize your dependencies

Create a class named RetrieveCallInfo and add the following code to the main method:

Copy to Clipboard
NexmoClient client = NexmoClient.builder()
        .applicationId(NEXMO_APPLICATION_ID)
        .privateKeyPath(NEXMO_PRIVATE_KEY_PATH)

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.voice with the package containing RetrieveCallInfo:

gradle run -Pmain=com.nexmo.quickstart.voice.RetrieveCallInfo

Prerequisites

Use your existing application

To fetch information about a call, you must use the same NEXMO_APPLICATION_ID and private key that were used to create the call.

Install dependencies

Install-Package Nexmo.Csharp.Client
Initialize your dependencies

Create a file named VoiceController.cs and add the following code:

Copy to Clipboard
var client = new Client(creds: new Nexmo.Api.Request.Credentials
{
    ApiKey = "NEXMO_API_KEY",
    ApiSecret = "NEXMO_API_SECRET",
    ApplicationId = "NEXMO_APPLICATION_ID",
    ApplicationKey = "NEXMO_APPLICATION_PRIVATE_KEY"
});

  2. Retrieve information for the call (this code snippet).
