Adding a new WABA ID

πŸ“˜

Note:

This feature applies only to WhatsApp Business Account created through embedded signup.

You can add multiple numbers as WhatsApp Business Account (WABA) and generate the WABA IDs. Also, if you have more than one WABA ID in your kaleyra.io account, you can select which WABA ID to use from the kaleyra.io UI among the available ones.
The following are the conditions when you are using multiple WABA IDs:

  • An already existing WABA ID can not be added to your kaleyra.io account while creating a new WABA ID.
  • An already existing WABA ID can not be added to different kaleyra.io accounts.
  • The same WABA ID can not be added to kaleyra.io accounts in different regions (that is America/Europe and the Rest of the World). For example, if you have a WABA ID called WA_TEST in any given account, you can not create another WABA ID with the same name in the same or another account even if in a different region.
