A Plivo endpoint, also known as SIP endpoint, can be any IP phone, mobile phone, wireless device or PDA, a laptop or desktop PC, that uses the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) to perform communications operations.
Endpoints are needed for the following cases:
You can create an endpoint using two methods:
You need to sign up for a Plivo account before creating an ‘Endpoint’. Once you signup and login click on the ‘Endpoint” tab and select “New Endpoint” as shown below.
Once you click on ‘New Endpoint’, you will see a screen as shown below.
While creating an endpoint, you need to provide a username and a password to access this endpoint. You need to provide these credentials to use this endpoint in any of the Plivo SDKs.
Please note that the username that needs to be used is not exactly the one that you provided. The username gets appended with few digits at the end. For example, if the username you provided is ‘abcde’ the credential that needs to be provided in the SDKs might look like ‘abcde170522161520’. You can find this credential in the Endpoints tab.
You can get started with Application using this guide. Once you create an application, you can select the desired application that needs to be attached while creating an endpoint.
