Create an open channel
Instead of creating an open channel directly in Sendbird UIKit for Chat, try using one of the following three methods to create a channel instance for the UIKit.
- Sendbird Dashboard
- Platform API
Sendbird Dashboard allows you to create an open channel in the most simple way.
- Login to Sendbird Dashboard and find your Application.
- Go to Chat > Open channels, and select Create channel .
- 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.
Sendbird Chat SDK
To create an open channel through Chat Platform API, see Create a channel in the Platform API Docs.
