Element Data type Description



The URI of the sent message.


The reply does not include any attachments or voice memos that may have been present in the original message.

You specify an additional recipient of the reply message with the Groove Identity URL of the contact in a MessageContact in the Recipients element of the AdditionalHeaderDataMessageHeader.

You can include only recipients that are accessible to the account. The following kinds of contacts are accessible:

  • Contacts in the account Contacts list.

  • Members of workspaces that the account belongs to.

  • Contacts who have been the sender or a recipient of a message in the account message history.

If a call to the Create, CreateForward, or CreateReply operation specifies a recipient that is not accessible to the account, a SOAP fault will be returned and the entire operation will fail. The SOAP exception does not provide any information on which contact caused the operation to fail.
