Retrieve the latest information on participants

To retrieve the latest information on each online participant in an open channel, you need to create a new query instance using channel.createParticipantListQuery(), then call the next() method until you retrieve the latest.

You can also retrieve the latest information on participants at the application level. Similar to retrieving a list of users in an application, you need to create a new query instance using sb.createApplicationUserListQuery(), then call the next() method until you retrieve the latest.

You can get the participant's current connection status by checking their connectionStatus in the returned list. Acceptable values of the connectionStatus property are offline and online.

Connection status values

ValueDescription

offline

The user isn't connected to the Sendbird server.

online

The user is connected to the Sendbird server.

Note: If you need to keep track of a participant's connection status in real-time, we recommend that you call the next() method of the ApplicationUserListQuery instance in intervals of one minute or more after specifying the value of userIdsFilter.
