Modifying the Profile of a Group Member

Last updated: 2022-07-29 11:03:11

    Feature Description

    This API is used by the app admin to modify the profile of a group member.

    API Calling Description

    Applicable group types

    Group Type ID RESTful API Support
    Private Yes. Same as Work (work group) in the new version.
    Public Yes
    ChatRoom Yes. Same as the meeting group (Meeting) in the new version.
    AVChatRoom No.
    Community Yes.

    These are the built-in group types in IM. For detailed information, see Group System.


    Audio-video groups do not store group member profiles and therefore do not allow member profile modification. They only support modifying the member profiles of admins and the group owner. Error 10007 will be returned if you try to modify the profiles of common group members.
