Callback Before Accepting a Request to Join a Group

Last updated: 2022-05-24 15:13:03

    Feature Description

    The app backend uses this callback to view users' requests to join groups in real time, including blocking these requests.


    • To enable this callback, you must configure the callback URL and toggle on the corresponding protocol. For details on the configuration method, see Third-Party Callback Configuration.
    • Callback direction: 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 consistent with its own SDKAppID.
    • For other security-related issues, see Third-Party Callback Overview: Security Considerations.

    Callback Triggering Scenarios

    This callback is triggered when an app user submits a request to join a group through the client.

    Callback Triggering Time

    This callback is triggered before the IM backend adds the requesting user to the group. (If the request needs to be approved by the admin, the callback occurs before the admin is notified.)

    API Description

    In the following example, the callback URL configured in the app is https://www.example.com.

    Response packet examples

    Allowing the processing to proceed

    Allows the system to continue to process the user’s request to join a group.

      "ActionStatus": "OK",
      "ErrorInfo": "",
      "ErrorCode": 0 // Indicates that the system can continue to process the request to join the group.

    Rejecting the request

    Disallows the system to continue to process the user’s request to join a group and returns error code 10016 to the caller.

      "ActionStatus": "OK",
      "ErrorInfo": "",
      "ErrorCode": 1 // Indicates that the request to join a group is rejected.

    Response packet fields

    Field Type Attribute Description
    ActionStatus String Required The request processing result. OK: succeeded. FAIL: failed.
    ErrorCode Integer Required The error code. 0: the system can continue to process the request. 1: the request is rejected. If the business side wants to specify error code to forbid the request form a user and send ErrorCode and ErrorInfo to the client, ensure that the value of ErrorCode is set within the range of [10100, 10200]. If the request needs to be approved by the admin, the system must wait for the admin to approve the request even if error code 0 is returned.
    ErrorInfo String Required Error information.
