Is Chat AppID the same as PUN AppID?

I registered Photon Cloud and on my dashboard "All App" page, there is an AppID there. I used that AppID for PUN in my Unity editor, works fine. But when i input that same AppID in Photon Chat and tried to run Chat demo from Photon demo package, it always gave me the error "Chat Operation 5 unknown on server. Check your AppId and make sure it's for a Chat application." am i inputting the wrong chat AppID? if so, where shall i get chat AppID?


  • Hi @hyhy2018,

    Thank you for choosing Photon!

    No. Chat AppID is not the same as PUN AppID.

    PUN AppID is for a Realtime Application.
    Chat AppID is for a Chat Application.
    Realtime and Chat Applications are different and run on "different" clouds.
