Admins can't remove the Group Creator

How can we allow an Admin to remove a group creator? We are getting Error message similar to following.

///---------------------------------////
code: ‘ERR_GROUP_NO_CLEARANCE’,
message: 'The user with uid c8daccef-7048-4db4-8b5c-d2b3cbe8412f does not have enough clearance to kick the user with uid 13cbc082-eb3e-4a7a-b574-c024e5321a80 from group with guid a6d9298a-7126-4236-9dca-ed115a3bd70a.

Hi @madhava.vithana,

It’s not possible for an admin to remove the group creator from the group.

However, using Admin API you can make the owner leave the group.

Kindly go through this documentation for reference:
https://prodocs.cometchat.com/reference#user-leavegroup

According to Docs, There are only 3 types of users.
Admins, Moderators and Participants.

Should we treat Creators as a different category? What’s the reason behind not allowing Admins to remove the Creator even though we can make them as participants.

Hi @madhava.vithana,

Group Creator is by default the admin of the group but they have higher precedence than other admins in the group.

Also, no other members of the group can modify the scope of the group creator.
