Create an open channel
Create a open channel by using the Sendbird Dashboard, iOS Chat SDK or the Chat Platform API.
Instead of creating an open channel directly in UIKit, try using one of the following three methods to create a channel instance for UIKit.
- Sendbird Dashboard
- Sendbird Chat SDK for iOS
- Platform API
Sendbird Dashboard allows you to create an open channel in a most simple way.
- Login to the dashboard and then find your Application.
- Go to the Chat > Open channels, and click Create channel at the top-right corner.
- In the dialog box that appears, specify the name, unique URL, cover image, and custom type of a new channel you are about to create.
