Overriding templates

Users can easily override the content of the message template by supplying the content inline with the request to the /messages endpoint.

Any information provided in the message request will take precedence over the templated content.

All of the features that are specified in the template (for example, any message aliasing) will still be respected when the message is delivered.

  • JSON
  • XML
