What if I want to make a group only for specific students without manually accepting/refusing those who ask to join the group myself?

Assuming I've a database that has a number of passwords, and I've given one distinct password to every student, I want them to be automatically accepted if they ask to join and entered a correct password. I also do not want to allow them add/invite new members at all.

  • Is this even possible using FB API at the current time?

  • If so what topics/key_ideas/tags I must make a research about in order to create such a web app?

  • If there is any other way around, I'd love to hear it.

I am not a programmer, I just had few programming courses.

  • Welcome to Web Applications! Please note that requests for app recommendations are off-topic here. Please focus on the problem you're trying to solve rather than the solution (a web application) that you think you need. Also, have a look at How do I ask a question that may require recommending a web app? – ale Oct 17 '18 at 20:10
  • Thank you for explaining, I removed asking for app recommendations, focused more on problem. – Yousef Oct 17 '18 at 20:33

In short: no.

There is no way to accept group requests trought Facebook Graph API.

You could accept passwords trought group questions , and then comparing them to passwords in your database. Then you could make a a js plugin that automatically clicks accept. But you would still need one admin to be online.

I would recomend studying Facebook for business, as it can be connected with custom domains (your login credentials)
