Get specific records by UUID

This code snippet shows you how to retrieve a specific record by specifying a message or call UUID. It is also possible to specify a comma-separated list of UUIDs to retrieve multiple records, for example:

curl -u "$VONAGE_API_KEY:$VONAGE_API_SECRET",7b109636-1a05-11eb-bad9-38f9d3316493,7b109a1e-1a05-11eb-bad9-38f9d3316493,7b10a0c2-1a05-11eb-bad9-38f9d331649

If records corresponding to any of the specified UUIDs are not found, then a list of those are returned in the response using the ids_not_found field, for example:

  "ids_not_found": "7b10a0c2-1a05-11eb-bad9-38f9d331649,7b1091b8-1a05-11eb-bad9-38f9d331493"

NOTE: This is a synchronous call and so will block until it returns a response.
