As an example, say you want to send your SMS via SMS Gupshup API (an SMS provider in India), you can then copy their API Endpoint to the API URL below. (Check complete API Documentation for SMS Gupshup here)

Use GET Method to send the API request.

API URL : Just copy this in API URL Field (use API URL provided by your own SMS Provider instead of this one) : http://enterprise.smsgupshup.com/GatewayAPI/rest?method=SendMessage&send_to=919898989898&msg=Hi, This is your sample message.&msg_type=TEXT&userid=YourUserId&auth_scheme=plain&password=YourPassword&v=1.1&format=text

Once configured, please Send SMS to Test if your configuration is working. Save your settings if everything looks fine. 

Note: We do not track SMS delivery for Custom Connector.

2. Once above step is done, Refresh the page and then you can choose the SMS Provider from the drop-down. You should also set the attribute which saves your User's Mobile Number so that our system know which attribute, the end user Mobile number has to be picked from, before sending a SMS.
