05. Integrate Exotel API

function executeCall(phone_no, filePath, cb) {

 exotel = require('exotel-client');
 exotel.init('<Exotel SID>', '<Exotel Token>');

 exotel.call_flow('<Your Number>', '<Exo Phone Numbers>', '<App ID>', function(err,data){
 console.log("call done",data)
 data = JSON.parse(data);
 var sid = '',status = '';
 sid = (data.RestException) ? 'NA' : data.Call.Sid;
 status = (data.RestException) ? 'Failed' : 'Success';
 var value = [sid,filePath,phone_no]
 sqlquery.insert('call_info',value,function(result){
 cb("pass")
 })
 });
};

Please check above code of API integration,
Now we need to save call execute details (CALL SID) and TTS audio URL into our database for dynamic greeting call, In my example I am using mysql DB
Now create new GET method for Exotel, if any call executed & user are receive that call then exotel call to our API, refer point number #3 for API URL, that API URL response to exotel with audio URL
