In addition to configuring the API integration to allow access to a Group, Facebook has an additional requirement to allow streaming to a Group using their API.
Facebook requires that an Admin of the Group add the respective "app" (in Facebook's terminology) to allow access by a Teradek hardware encoder like the 600 or 700 series Cube, Bond or Slice, a VidiU Go or VidiU Pro, the Live:Air Solo or Live:Air Action apps for iOS, or from a Core or Sharelink account.
No streaming will be possible to the Group until both the app addition and the API integration have been performed.
In addition to the visual guide below, Facebook has information on how to add an app to a Group at this link.
