NOTE: This is an official Second Life API provided and documented by Linden Lab. Its use is subject to the API Terms of Use.

add_to_group

HTTP method: POST

The add_to_group operation adds a new Resident (user) to the specified group.

NOTE: This operation will work for one hour after a user initially registers. After that time, the operation will have no effect for that user.

To use this operation, you must:

  • Receive the "add_to_group" capability before the user registers.
  • Have a role in the group with the ability to add Residents to the group, shown in the Viewer as ability "Invite People to this Group." For more information, see Group Roles Knowledge Base article.
    • The group owner always has this ability
    • By default, officers have it.
    • Other group members may have the ability, if they have a role for which it has been granted.
  • Register the user yourself using your granted capabilities.

Parameters

POST an LLSD map containing the user's first and last name and the group name and the Reg API returns a Boolean value indicating whether the operation was successful.

Parameter Data type Description Default Value
first String User's first name None. Required parameter.
last String User's last name None. Required parameter.
group_name String Group name None. Required parameter.

Return value

The Reg API returns an LLSD document containing a Boolean value that indicates whether the operation was successful. If the value is "true" then the Resident was added to the specified group.

Example

Posted message:

<llsd>
   <map>
       <key>first</key>
       <string>Noobie</string>
       <key>last</key>
       <string>Filbert</string>
       <key>group_name</key>
       <string>Cool Group</string>
   </map>
</llsd>

If the Resident was successfully added to the group, Reg API returns the following:

<llsd> 
  <boolean>true</boolean> 
</llsd>

check_name

HTTP method: POST

The check_name operation checks to see if a user can be registered with a given Second Life first name and last name.

Parameters

POST the new user's desired "username" and "last_name_id", and the Reg API returns an LLSD document that contains a Boolean value indicating whether the name is available.

Setting Data type Description Default Value
username String Desired user name (Second Life first name). Must be between 2-31 alphanumeric characters. Certain first names are restricted; for example, those considered obscene or inappropriate for public use. Required parameter.
last_name_id Integer ID of desired Second Life last name. Required parameter.

Example

Posted message:

<llsd> 
  <map> 
      <key>username</key><string>mistaht</string> 
      <key>last_name_id</key><integer>1872</integer> 
  </map> 
</llsd>

Reply message:

<llsd> 
  <boolean>true</boolean> 
</llsd>

create_user

HTTP method: POST

The create_user operation creates a new Second Life Resident (user) account. POST to this URL a LLSD document containing at least the following parameters:

  • username
  • last_name_id
  • email
  • dob
  • password

In addition, you can include any of the optional parameters listed in the table below.

If successful, the Reg API will return a hash containing the new user's agent_id. If there are errors, the Reg API will instead return an array containing the applicable error codes will be returned.

Parameters

Setting Data type Description Default Value

start_region_name String Region where user will initially appear after login. This can only be set to simulators in the user's limited to estate. Optional parameter. Orientation island of the estate.
start_local_x Real X coordinate of the starting region. Must be between 0-256. Value must have two decimal places, for example: 123.00.

Optional parameter; valid only when start_region_name is set.

128 (center).
start_local_y Real Y coordinate of the starting region. Must be between 0-256. Value must have two decimal places, for example: 123.00.

Optional parameter; valid only when start_region_name is set.

0

NOTE: You can get the numeric estate ID via the debug menus (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+D to enable them). Then use Client > View Admin Options. This will allow you to view, but not use, the options that admins (Lindens) can use. Now go to the Server menu, which appeared with the Client one. Select God Tools, look at the Region tab... the Estate ID is listed there. Don't worry about pressing or changing something you shouldn't... as they are just viewable options, any changes you make won't stick.

Return value

If the operation successfully creates a new user, it returns a document like this:

<llsd> 
  <map> 
      <key>agent_id</key> 
      <string>UNIQUE_ID</string> 
  </map> 
</llsd>

Where UNIQUE_ID is the new user's unique Second Life ID number.

If the operation is not successful, then it returns an array of error codes similar to that returned by get_error_codes.

Example

Posted message:

<llsd>
  <map>
    <key>dob</key><string>1987-07-06</string>
    <key>start_region_name</key><string>da boom</string>
    <key>username</key><string>mistaht</string>
    <key>last_name_id</key><integer>1872</integer>
    <key>password</key><string>123456</string>
    <key>email</key><string>ben@ben.com</string>
  </map>
</llsd>

Reply message:

<llsd> 
  <map> 
      <key>agent_id</key> 
      <string>87cfdb64-c852-4359-ae16-dce36099ff68</string> 
  </map> 
</llsd>

get_error_codes

HTTP method: GET

The get_error_codes operation returns an LLSD document describing the Reg API error codes. This information is reproduced in Registration API Error Codes. This operation does not take any parameters.

The errors are in an array, and each error is, in addition, contained in an array. The first element in the array is the error code, the second is the name of the error, the third is the description.

Example

The following HTML code illustrates a simple form to get the error codes:

<form action="https://cap.secondlife.com/cap/0/UUID" method="GET">
   <input type='submit' value="Get Error Codes">
</form>

Example response:

<llsd> 
   </array> 
       <array> 
           <integer>20</integer> 
           <string>missing required field</string> 
           <string>You are missing one of the required fields</string> 
       </array> 
... 
       <array> 
           <integer>1500</integer> 
           <string>malformed xml</string> 
           <string>Your xml is malformed</string> 
       </array> 
   </array> 
</llsd>

get_last_names

HTTP method: GET

The get_last_names operation retrieves the last names and corresponding IDs with which you are able to register new users.

Example

The following HTML code illustrates a simple form to get the valid last names:

<form action="https://cap.secondlife.com/cap/0/UUID" method="GET">
   <input type="submit" value="Get Last Names">
</form>

Example response:

<llsd> 
  <map> 
      <key>1926</key><string>Morellet</string> 
      <key>1683</key><string>Okamoto</string> 
      <key>1738</key><string>Rankin</string>

      <key>1870</key><string>Yang</string> 
  </map> 
</llsd>

This operation returns the capability URL for each operation for which your account is authorized.

URI: https://cap.secondlife.com/get_reg_capabilities

POST parameters

  • first_name (Second Life first name)
