After implementing the function to retrieve a list of friends by referring to the development guide for the platform you develop, test to check if your app's team members are normally retrieved as follows.

  1. Go to [My Application] > [Kakao Login] > [Consent items] > [Personal Information], and then set the Friends List in Kakao Service scope to 'Consent during use'.
  2. Implement the function to retrieve a list of friends by referring to the development guide for the platform you develop. If an error occurs, refer to the error cases in DevTalk.
  3. Log into your app with your Kakao Account and consent to 'Friends List in Kakao Service' scope.
  4. If any team member is not registered, add the persons to be tested as team members. If a person invited as a team member does not have a Kakao Developer's account, ask them to sign up for Kakao Developers with the Kakao Account.
  5. Ask the team members to log into your app with their Kakao Accounts and consent to the 'Friends List in Kakao Service' scope.
  6. Request a list of friends, and then check if the team members are successfully retrieved.
    IMPORTANT: Only the team members who are linked to your app and consented to the 'Friends List in Kakao Service' scope are retrieved.

Request permission Required

Before your app gets permission for retrieving list of friends, your app is:

  • Allowed to set the 'Friends List in Kakao Service' scope to 'Consent during use' only.
  • Able to retrieve the friends' information of the team members only.

To retrieve all of the friends' information as well as the team members of the app, you must get permission as follows:

  1. Test the function for retrieving the list of friends.
  2. Register your company’s business registration number in [My Application] > [App Settings] > [Business] to switch your app to Biz app.
  3. In DevTalk, select the ➊'친구 API(Friends API)' category and ➋[새글 쓰기(New Topic)], and then request permission by referring to How to request permission and checklist. After reviewing your request, the Kakao platform administrator lets you know the result.

After permission is granted, you can retrieve list of the friends' information who are linked to your app and consented to the 'Friends List in Kakao Service' scope. You can also set the 'Friends List in Kakao Service' scope to 'Optional consent'.

Even after you have permission, only the friends' information that meets the conditions described in Usage policy is provided. If a specific friend is not passed in the response, check FAQ.
