    link to docs

    This is a Node.js package that makes talking to the Sendbird Platform API easier. With this library you can extend your Sendbird integration to include advanced features like channel automation and user management.


    npm install sendbird-platform-sdk

    🔥 Quick start

    import SendbirdPlatformSdk from 'sendbird-platform-sdk';
    const userId = "1234";
    const name = "bob";
    const profileUrl = "";
    const opts = {
        'apiToken': 'YOUR_MASTER_API_KEY',
        'createUserData': new SendbirdPlatformSdk.CreateUserData(userId, name, profileUrl),
    async function createUser() {
        const userApiInstance = new SendbirdPlatformSdk.UserApi();
        userApiInstance.apiClient.basePath = `https://api-${"YOUR_APP_ID"}`;
        try {
            const data = await userApiInstance.createUser(opts);
        } catch (e) {

    ⚠️ Warnings

    1. This package is not currently in npm. Please see the Local development section for installation instructions.

    2. This library is intended for server to server requests. Do not use in a browser environment. This SDK uses the Master API Token, which should never be exposed to the outside world like in a webpage or app.

    ⚒️ Prerequisite

    In order to make requests with this SDK you will need you master API token. This can be found through the Sendbird dashboard. Each app you create in Sendbird has its own master api token. These tokens can be found in Settings > Application > General.
