Piyush Jain | 9 comments (I am using this api)
HI, can anyone help me here
when I am using
this is format is mentioned in the doc and give unauthorized error
This format i got from some comments but its also not working and gives
same unauthorized error as above

(I have changed the key which is incorrect so it may throw some other error that 401, but with correct key I am having 401 error [unauthorized])
Its not even working when I am logged in a browser with same user id (119425339).

it says not authorized

I just want a user friends list only so i am using "Get a user's friends" api from here
[#user.friends] api

AND I haven't yet done the authorization part
so please tell me for this task do i have to do oauth first and if then please also tell me how to establish oauth here (I am very new in oauth field and have checkout out the doc but its not working)

I am currently using api as curl
and I can apply oauth in php or can use AJAX with js/jquery as working on php/js project

please anyone help me here ASAP.

Q) AND In the "Get a user's friends" api, does the response contain 'email_id' of all the user friends. [email_id is mendatory to build a feature which i am working on if its not giving this attribute then i cannot use this api, so please let me know about this if you have any idea about this. ]

Thanks for help
