Create the Users

Each participant in a Conversation is represented by a User object and must be authenticated by the Client SDK. In a production application, you would typically store this user information in a database.

Execute the following commands to create two users, USER1_NAME and USER2_NAME who will log in to the Nexmo Client and participate in the chat (Conversation).

nexmo user:create name="USER1_NAME"
nexmo user:create name="USER2_NAME"

This will return user IDs similar to the following:

User created: USR-aaaaaaaa-bbbb-cccc-dddd-0123456789ab

There is no need to remember this user ID because we will use user names (instead of user IDs) to add them to the conversation.
