Last updated: 2022-09-22 16:37:00

    Use Cases

    This document describes how to create Free edition apps and obtain SDKAppIDs. It also covers how to upgrade Free edition apps to Pro edition apps using the IM console.


    You have signed up for a Tencent Cloud account and completed identity verification.

    Creating a Free App

    1. Log in to the IM console.
    2. Click Create Application.
    3. In the Create Application dialog box, enter your app name, and click Confirm.
      After the app is created, you can view the status, service version, SDKAppID, creation time, and expiration time of the new app on the overview page of the console.

    By default, a new app is a trial app and enabled.
    A Tencent Cloud account can create a maximum of 300 IM apps. If you want to create more apps, disable and delete an unwanted app first and then create a new one. Once an app (along with its SDKAppID) is deleted, the service it provides and all its data are lost. Please proceed with caution.

    Upgrading an App


    You can use a plan to upgrade an app from the Free edition to the Pro edition or Ultimate edition but cannot roll it back to the Free edition after the upgrade. After the services of an app are suspended due to overdue payments or refunds, if you need to continue to use the services, you can renew the Pro edition or Ultimate edition plan. If you want to go back to the Free edition, create a new app.

    1. Click View Upgradeable Items in the target app card to view the comparison of upgradeable items.
    2. Click Upgrade Plan at the bottom of the Compare Upgradeable Items dialog box.
    3. Configure the following parameters as required:
