Callback After Sending Group Messages

Last updated: 2022-09-19 17:30:50

    Feature Description

    This API is used by the app backend to view users' group messages in real time. The app backend can be notified when a group message is sent successfully and can synchronize the data as required.


    • To enable this callback, you must configure a callback URL and enable the corresponding switch for this callback. For more information on the configuration method, see Callback Configuration.
    • During this callback, 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 the SDKAppID of the app.
    • For more security considerations, see the Security Considerations section of Third-Party Callback Overview.

    Callback Trigger Scenarios

    • An app user sends a group message on the client.
    • The app admin sends a group message via a RESTful API call.

    Callback Trigger Time

    The callback is triggered after a group message is sent successfully.
