Topic muting

PATCH https://categorytheory.zulipchat.com/api/v1/users/me/subscriptions/muted_topics

Mute or unmute a topic within a stream that the current user is subscribed to.

Changes: Deprecated in Zulip 7.0 (feature level 170). Clients connecting to newer servers should use the POST /user_topics endpoint, as this endpoint may be removed in a future release.

Before Zulip 7.0 (feature level 169), this endpoint returned an error if asked to mute a topic that was already muted or asked to unmute a topic that had not previously been muted.

Usage examples

#!/usr/bin/env python3

import zulip

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

# Mute the topic "boat party" in the stream "Denmark"
request = {
    "stream": "Denmark",
    "topic": "boat party",
    "op": "add",
}
result = client.mute_topic(request)
# Unmute the topic "boat party" in the stream "Denmark"
request = {
    "stream": "Denmark",
    "topic": "boat party",
    "op": "remove",
}

result = client.mute_topic(request)
print(result)
