Generic method to send SMS using HTTP API


There are many SMS providers. And it is hard to implement them all.
Most of them provide an easy way that is to send SMS via HTTP API.
So we can simply add URL parameters after the base URL and everything is done.

There are some common parameters (the parameters’ names may vary in different providers):

  • base URL
  • user_name
  • PWD
  • Subject (optional)
  • receiver
  • text
  • scheduledatetime


According to this article

This can be done using http request node.

yeah, as long as these sms providers expose a REST API this can be achieved with the HTTP node.
