Invites resident to the group.

// Command usage:
llMessageLinked(LINK_SET, SB_INVITE_SEND, string str, key id);

API parameters

llMessageLinked function accepts str and id parameters. Their meaning for SB_INVITE_SEND is explained below:

Variable Required Description.

str yes flags, separated by commas

The following flags can be used:

  • FORCE - send invitation to existing group members
  • Role:role-name - invite to specific role instead of "Everyone"

See the "Examples" section below.

id yes avatar UUID


Avoiding invitation spam

By default, SmartBots does not invite existing group members. Bot reads the list of existing members every 15-20 minutes. Thus:

  • if avatar leaves the group, bot will not invite him to the group during the next 20 minutes.
  • if avatar just joined the group, an immediate second join command will send another group invitation (bot still does not know about new group member).

To invite existing group members too, use the FORCE flag to invite them too.


By default, an invitation is being sent to "Everyone" role. This can be changed by using the Role flag.

1. Use the role name, not the role title! The name is case-sensitive

Make sure that you use the role name. Using the role title (or the role tag name) won't work. Also remember that role name is cAsE SeNsItIvE!

If role-name is misspelled, then invite will work though but will invite avatars to default Everyone role.

2. Give the necessary permissions to the bot!

Inviting to the specific role requires additional group setup:

  1. "Assign members to Assigner's Roles" ability given to the bot
  2. Bot have to be a member of that role.

If bot has lack abilities, the flashing pop-up appears in viewer of the invited person, reporting that "Inviter is lack of permission...".

Read Inviting residents to custom role page for more details.


Invite resident to the group on touch:

touch_start(integer detected) {
  // "FORCE" means to invite existing group members too
  llMessageLinked(LINK_SET, SB_INVITE_SEND, "", llDetectedKey(0));

Invite resident to the custom role:

touch_start(integer detected) {
  // We use the "Role" flag to specify the role
  llMessageLinked(LINK_SET, SB_INVITE_SEND, "Role:Tenants", llDetectedKey(0));
