General Info

For infobip-api-python-client versioning we use Semantic Versioning scheme.

Published under MIT License.

Python 3.6 is minimum supported version by this library.


Pull the library by using the following command:

pip install infobip-api-python-client


Before initializing the client first thing you need to do is to set configuration and authentication.


Let's first set the configuration. For that you will need your specific URL. To see your base URL, log in to the Infobip API Resource hub with your Infobip credentials.

    from infobip_api_client.api_client import ApiClient, Configuration
    client_config = Configuration(
        api_key={"APIKeyHeader": "<YOUR_API_KEY>"},
        api_key_prefix={"APIKeyHeader": "<YOUR_API_PREFIX>"},

Initialize the Client

With configuration set up you can initialize the API client.

	api_client = ApiClient(client_config)

Now you are ready use the API.

Send an SMS

Here's a basic example of sending the SMS message.

    sms_request = SmsAdvancedTextualRequest(
                text="This is a dummy SMS message sent using Python library",
    api_instance = SendSmsApi(api_client)

    api_response: SmsResponse = api_instance.send_sms_message(sms_advanced_textual_request=sms_request)

To make your code more robust send the message in try block and handle the ApiException in catch block.

    from infobip_api_client.exceptions import ApiException
        api_response: SmsResponse = api_instance.send_sms_message(sms_advanced_textual_request=sms_request)
    except ApiException as ex:
        print("Error occurred while trying to send SMS message.")

In case of failure you can inspect the ApiException for more information.

        api_response: SmsResponse = api_instance.send_sms_message(sms_advanced_binary_request=sms_advanced_binary_request)
    except ApiException as ex:
        print("Error occurred while trying to send SMS message.")
        print("Error status: %s\n" % ex.status)
        print("Error headers: %s\n" % ex.headers)
        print("Error body: %s\n" % ex.body)

Additionally, from the successful response (SmsResponse object) you can pull out the bulk_id and message_id(s) and use them to fetch a delivery report for given message or bulk. Bulk ID will be received only when you send a message to more than one destination address or multiple messages in a single request.

    bulk_id = api_response.bulk_id
    message_id = api_response.messages[0].message_id

Receive sent SMS report

For each SMS that you send out, we can send you a message delivery report in real time. All you need to do is specify your endpoint when sending SMS in notify_url field of SmsTextualMessage, or subscribe for reports by contacting our support team. e.g. https://{yourDomain}/delivery-reports

Example of webhook implementation using Flask:

    @app.route("/api/delivery-reports", methods=["POST"])
    def delivery_report():
        delivery_result = SmsDeliveryResult(
        for result in delivery_results.results:
            print("message {0} sent at {1}".format(result.message_id, result.sent_at))

If you prefer to use your own serializer, please pay attention to the supported date format.

Fetching delivery reports

If you are for any reason unable to receive real time delivery reports on your endpoint, you can use message_id or bulk_id to fetch them. Each request will return a batch of delivery reports. Please be aware that these can be retrieved only once.

    api_response = api_instance.get_outbound_sms_message_delivery_reports(bulk_id=bulk_id, message_id=message_id, limit=2)

Unicode & SMS preview

Infobip API supports Unicode characters and automatically detects encoding. Unicode and non-standard GSM characters use additional space, avoid unpleasant surprises and check how different message configurations will affect your message text, number of characters and message parts.

    sms_preview_request = SmsPreviewRequest(
        text="Let's see how many characters will remain unused in this message."
    api_response = api_instance.preview_sms_message(sms_preview_request=sms_preview_request)

Receive incoming SMS

If you want to receive SMS messages from your subscribers we can have them delivered to you in real time. When you buy and configure a number capable of receiving SMS, specify your endpoint as explained here. e.g. https://{yourDomain}/incoming-sms.

Example of webhook implementation using Flask:

    @app.route("/api/incoming-sms", methods=["POST"])
    def incoming_sms():
        message_results = SmsInboundMessageResult(
        for result in message_results.results:
            print("message text: {0}".format(result.clean_text))
