Next, we will write some code in the function. This code will use some inbuilt twilio variables and get a new access token from our stored variables.

We need to first enable the checkbox for Enable ACCOUNTSID and AUTHTOKEN. After that click on the + button next to KEY twice and enter API_KEY and API_SECRET in the KEY column.

The VALUE for both of them you will get from TWILIOAPISID and TWILIOAPISECRET, which you saved in the .env file in part-2.
