How to send multicast message to devices on ChirpStack v4

Hi Guys,

I had deployed chirpstack v4 and send unicast message successfully, but multicast functions on v4 still failed, I have the following question need to be clarified.
1, Will chirpstack send McGroupSetupReq MAC command to each device when I add the devices to a such multicast group? Or need to send McGroupSetupReq MAC command manually?
2, How the chirpstack to calculate the payload of McGroupSetupReq message when MAC command sending?
3, Do I need to configure any parameters related to multicast in the device?

Appreciate very much if someone can help?

It does not. When you add devices to a multicast-group, you must configure these devices out-of-band with the multicast configuration, or send the McGroupSetupReq yourself (you can enqueue this command as normal unicast downlink).

Thank you Brocaar, multicast worked after we send McGroupSetupReq MAC command via port 200.
