    Sample request packets

    • Basic request
      Used to invite users to a group. A single request supports adding up to 300 members. By default, the backend delivers group system notifications to all group members, except for private groups (or work groups in the new version) that have not been activated.
       "GroupId": "@TGS#2J4SZEAEL", // The group to which to add members (required)
       "MemberList": [ // Up to 300 members can be added at a time.
           "Member_Account": "tommy" // The ID of the member to be added (required)
           "Member_Account": "jared"
    • Adding members silently
      When Silence is set to 1, the system does not notify anyone after successfully adding members.
       "GroupId": "@TGS#2J4SZEAEL", // The group to which to add members (required)
       "Silence": 1, // Whether to add members silently (optional)
       "MemberList": [ // Up to 300 members can be added at a time.
           "Member_Account": "tommy" // The ID of the member to be added (required)
           "Member_Account": "jared"

    Error Codes

    The returned HTTP status code for this API is always 200 unless a network error (such as error 502) occurs. The specific error code and details can be found in the response fields ErrorCode and ErrorInfo respectively.
    For public error codes (60000 to 79999), please see Error Codes.
    The following table describes the error codes specific to this API:

    Error Code Description
    10002 Internal server error. Try again.

    10004 Invalid parameter. Check the error description and troubleshoot the issue.
    10005 The number of member accounts in the request packet exceeds 300.
    10007 No operation permissions. In this case, check whether the group type supports user invitation. For example, AVChatRoom and BChatRoom groups do not allow anyone to invite others to the groups.

    10026 The command word of the SDKAppID request is disabled. Contact customer service.
    10037 The number of groups that the invited user has joined exceeds the limit. In this case, check and delete the Member_Account that has joined excessive groups, or purchase an upgrade based on the your need. For information on IM plans, see Pricing.
