Partner's own SMS Gateway

It is possible to link a partner's Clickatell account to Telematics Guru. The partner can then pay for the cost of the SMS' directly.

The first step is to obtain a Clickatell account and supply Digital Matter the details, then setting the Provider for the organisation in Telematics Guru.


To set up your Clickatell account

  1. Go to www.clickatell.com and sign up
  2. Login to your account and from the landing page at https://portal.clickatell.com, click SMS Integrations, under "Create your first SMS integration".
  3. Enter a name, choose an environment (Live). Choose REST as the API type.
  4. The remaining settings are up to you. The defaults are a good place to start, but please pay attention to any security issues.
  5. Save the setup
  6. You should see your integration listed under SMS Integrations. 

It should look like this, with Environment = Production and Status = On:

Supply support@digitalmatter.com with one of the following information sets.

  • REST API ID, Client ID and Username/Password
  • OR - the API Key
  • OR - the REST API Auth Token

Testing Credentials

Test the credentials using a URL like this:

http://api.clickatell.com/http/sendmsg?user=myusername&password=mypassword&api_id=1234567&to=27821234567&text=Hello

You can also test the REST API with a cURL call, as shown by the Clickatell website:

CURL CALL:
==========
curl -i \
-X POST \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-H "Accept: application/json" \
-H "Authorization: <your API Key" \
-d '{"content": "Test Message Text", "to": ["+1234567890"]}' \
-s https://platform.clickatell.com/messages

To set up Telematics Guru

navigate to Admin > Organisation Manage > Organisation and select Edit. You can then change the SMS Provider for the Organisation and set the SMS Monthly Limit.
