/im/chat/messages being deprecated

Description/Error
We received an email from Zoom which states:
Our IM Chat APIs will be deprecated in favor for our new user level Chat APIs that we have released during October. The below API endpoints will be deprecated.

  • / v2/im/chat/sessions
  • / v2/im/chat/sessions/{sessionId}
  • / v2/im/chat/messages

However, the chatbot docs (https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/guides/chatbots/sending-messages) still talk about im/chat/messages.

chatbots are admin level apps. The alternative mentioned in the email (https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/api-reference/zoom-api/chat-messages/sendachatmessage) states that it is for user managed apps only.

How will the bots send messages in the future? Please clarify.

Thanks
Prashant

Hey @ps40,

Apologies for the confusion, the Send Chatbot Message endpoint will not be deprecated, and remain as is.

The new Send Chat Message endpoint is user level and sends messages on behalf of a user.

Thanks,
Tommy
