Mark messages in a topic as read


Mark all the unread messages in a topic as read.

Changes: Deprecated; clients should use the update personal message flags for narrow endpoint instead as this endpoint will be removed in a future release.

Usage examples

#!/usr/bin/env python3

import zulip

# Pass the path to your zuliprc file here.
client = zulip.Client(config_file="~/zuliprc")

# Mark unread messages in a given topic/channel as read.
result = client.mark_topic_as_read(stream_id, topic_name)

curl -sSX POST \
    --data-urlencode stream_id=43 \
    --data-urlencode 'topic_name=new coffee machine'


stream_id integer required

Example: 43

The ID of the channel to access.

topic_name string required

Example: "new coffee machine"

The name of the topic whose messages should be marked as read.


Example response(s)

Changes: As of Zulip 7.0 (feature level 167), if any parameters sent in the request are not supported by this endpoint, a successful JSON response will include an ignored_parameters_unsupported array.

A typical successful JSON response may look like:

    "msg": "",
    "result": "success"
