    Step 1. Create an app

    1. Log in to the Chat console.
    If you already have an app, record its SDKAppID and obtain key information. A Tencent Cloud account can create a maximum of 300 Chat apps. If you want to create a new app, disable and delete an unwanted app first. Once an app (along with its SDKAppID) is deleted, the service it provides and all its data are lost. Proceed with caution.
    2. Click Create Application, enter your app name, and click Confirm.
    3. After creation, you can see the status, service version, SDKAppID, creation time, tag, and expiry time of the new app on the overview page of the console. Record the SDKAppID.

    Step 2. Obtain key information

    1. Click the target app card to go to the basic configuration page of the app.
    2. In the Basic Information area, click Display key, and then copy and save the key information.
    Store the key information properly to prevent disclosure.

    Step 3. Download and configure the demo source code

    1. Download the Chat demo project. For more download information, see SDK Download.
    To respect the copyright of emoji design, the downloaded demo project does not contain sliced images of major emoji elements. You can use your local emoji packs to configure code. Unauthorized use of the emoji pack in the Chat demo may infringe on the design copyright.
    2. Open the project in the terminal directory and find the file GenerateTestUserSig in Android/Demo/app/src/main/java/com/tencent/qcloud/tim/demo/signature/GenerateTestUserSig.java.
    3. Set relevant parameters in the GenerateTestUserSig file:
    SDKAPPID: set it to the SDKAppID obtained in Step 1.
    SECRETKEY: enter the key obtained in Step 2.
    In this document, the method to obtain UserSig is to configure a SECRETKEY in the client code. In this method, the SECRETKEY is vulnerable to decompilation and reverse engineering. Once your SECRETKEY is disclosed, attackers can steal your Tencent Cloud traffic. Therefore, this method is only suitable for locally running a demo project and feature debugging. The correct UserSig distribution method is to integrate the calculation code of UserSig into your server and provide an app-oriented API. When UserSig is needed, your app can send a request to the business server to obtain a dynamic UserSig. For more information, see How to Generate UserSig on the Server.

    Step 4. Compile and run the demo

    Import the demo project with Android Studio, and then compile and run it. For more information, see the file README.md in the corresponding directory of the demo project cloned in Step 3.
    Environment requirements
    Android Studio-Chipmunk
    Android Gradle Plugin Version-4.2.0
    The demo is integrated with the audio/video call feature by default. However, the TRTC SDK on which the audio/video call feature relies currently does not support simulators. Please use real devices for demo running or debugging.
