    Use Cases

    This article describes how to create Trial Edition apps and obtain SDKAppIDs. It also covers how to upgrade Trial Edition apps to Pro Edition apps using the IM console.

    Prerequisites

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

    Creating a Trial 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.
    Note

    By default, a new app is a trial app and enabled.
    A Tencent Cloud account can create a maximum of 100 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. Proceed with caution.

    Upgrading an App

    Note:

    You can use a plan to upgrade an app from the Trial Edition to the Pro Edition or Flagship Edition but cannot roll it back to the Trial 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 Flagship Edition plan. If you want to go back to the Trial 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:
