Last updated: 2021-01-05 10:27:59

    Feature Description

    This API is used by app admins to modify group members’ profiles.

    API Calling Description

    Applicable group types

    Group Type ID Is this RESTful API Supported?
    Private Yes. Same as Work (work group for friends) in the new version.
    Public Yes.
    ChatRoom Yes. Same as Meeting (temporary meeting group) in the new version.
    AVChatRoom Yes. The group profiles can be modified.

    These are the 4 built-in group types in IM. For detailed information, see the Group System.


    Due to the internal implementation, AVChatRooms (livestreaming groups) only support modifying the member profiles of admins and the group owner. Error 10007 will be returned if you try to modify the profiles of ordinary group members.
