Step 2: Connect to OpenAI / Whatsapp / Twilio using API key

Then supply the API key required by your workflow. Your API key is stored securely in Google Cloud Secret Manager in your own project.

Create OpenAI API Key

You can create an API key from your OpenAI account dashboard. Copy over that API key to Google Cloud secret manager. Create a new key called openai. Then pick that from the table creation OpenAI API key step.

Create Twilio Whatsapp Sender

If you haven't already, sign up for a Twilio account. You'll need to set up a new Twilio phone number and configure it to send and receive messages.

Follow the steps to get the complete setup of the Whatsapp AI bot including the the database, webhooks and cloud functions needed.

Optionally, setup Play.HT if you want audio capability

In case you want the bot to reply to messages in audio, then you can use a text-to-speech API like Play.ht to do that for you. If you clone the "Whatsapp Business Support" template you will see an example with this option.

Step 3: Deploy your workflow

👉 Once ready simply deploy the workflow using Ship button and you will have a fully workflow ready for your usecase

Step 4: Give it a spin

Send a message to your whatsapp number and see the message on your BuildShip account and watch the response coming in from OpenAI.
