    Specifies the content and settings for a message template that can be used in text messages that are sent through the SMS channel.

    • Body (string) –

      The message body to use in text messages that are based on the message template.

    • DefaultSubstitutions (string) –

      A JSON object that specifies the default values to use for message variables in the message template. This object is a set of key-value pairs. Each key defines a message variable in the template. The corresponding value defines the default value for that variable.

    • RecommenderId (string) –

      The unique identifier for the recommender model to use for the message template. Amazon Pinpoint uses this value to determine how to retrieve and process data from a recommender model when it sends messages that use the template, if the template contains message variables for recommendation data.
