After a Friend Is Added

Last updated: 2023-03-20 16:15:41

    Feature Description

    The app backend uses this callback to view information about friends added by users in real time.


    • To enable this callback, you must configure the callback URL and toggle on the corresponding protocol. For details on the configuration method, see Third-Party Callback Configuration.
    • Callback direction: the IM backend initiates an HTTP POST request to the app backend.
    • After receiving the callback request, the app backend must check whether the SDKAppID contained in the request URL is consistent with its own SDKAppID.
    • For other security-related issues, see Third-Party Callback Overview: Security Considerations.

    Callback Triggering Scenarios

    • The app backend uses the RESTful API to initiate a two-way friend addition request, and the peer’s friend request verification mode is "AllowAny".
    • The app backend uses the client to initiate a two-way friend addition request, and the peer’s friend verification mode is "AllowAny".
    • The app backend uses the RESTful API to initiate a one-way friend addition request.
    • The app backend uses the client to initiate a one-way friend addition request.
    • After receiving the friend addition request, the app user permits to add the peer as a friend.
    • The app backend uses the RESTful API to forcibly add a friend.

    Callback Triggering Time

    This callback is triggered when a friend is successfully added.


    This callback will not be triggered if the API for importing friends is invoked to add a friend.
