Hi @Stephen Homer Catacte - It sounds like you might be passing something unexpected for the `owner_user_id` parameter of the create_room API call. Please double check that the user_id or email you're sending in is an active, non-guest user whose email has been confirmed and is a member of the group you're creating the room for.

Alternatively, you may be using a token for a group other than the one you're trying to create the room for (which means the user ID you pass in isn't matching the group ID the token is for. You may want to double check that the token being used is for the desired group.
