This article describes how to create a Trial Edition app and obtain the SDKAppID in the Instant Messaging (IM) console. It also shows you how to upgrade an app from Trial Edition to Pro Edition.
Log in to the IM Console.
Click Add Application.
In the Create Application dialog box, enter an app name and click OK.
After the app is created, you can view the status, version, SDKAppID, creation time, and expiry time of the new app on the overview page of the console.
By default, a new app is a trial app and enabled.
A Tencent Cloud account supports a maximum of 100 IM apps. If you have reached that limit, disable and delete an unwanted app before creating a new one. Once an app is deleted, all the data and services associated with the SDKAppID are removed and cannot be recovered, so proceed with caution.
