Yes, you can enable message redaction for your incoming SMS messages. 


Message redaction is configurable at an Application level. When redaction is enabled for an Application:

  1. The content of incoming messages to Plivo phone numbers associated with the Application are redacted from all internal Plivo server logs, as well as the debug logs available on the Plivo console. 

  2. The last three digits of the source number from which the SMS originated are redacted from all internal Plivo server logs, as well as the debug logs available on the Plivo console. 

  3. The last three digits of the source number from which the SMS originated are redacted from the Message Detail Record (MDR) generated for the message. Fetching MDRs for such messages would return the redacted source numbers.


To enable redaction for incoming messages from the Plivo console:

  1. Select the Application from the SMS Applications page. 
  2. Check the ‘Redact Incoming Messages’ checkbox.


To enable redaction for incoming messages using APIs:

  1. The log_incoming_messages attribute of the Application resource can be used to enable / disable message redaction.
  2. Use the Update Application API to update this property for your existing Applications.
