Daniel Please let the http://www.goodreads.com/api#user.fri... API show friends for the OAuth authenticated user even if their privacy is set to "goodreads members".

Right now users can't see their own friends from this API unless their privacy is set to 'anyone'. Even if they're using OAuth.

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) We'll investigate this soon!

Louise | 36 comments Daniel, are you still unable to view the friend list? Just to clarify, Member A is set to "goodreads members" but Member A can't view their own friend list when Oauthed?


message 4: by Daniel (new)

Daniel I haven't checked yet today (I will tonight), but if member A is set to "Goodreads Members", Member A can't view their own friend list when making an OAuth signed request.


message 5: by Daniel (new)

Daniel It still doesn't work if the privacy setting is set to " just my friends"


message 6: by Louise (new)

Louise | 36 comments Ah, I figured out what was wrong. Thanks for the quick feedback, Daniel. It should be all sorted out in the next release.


message 7: by Daniel (new)

Daniel Great :-) Any idea when the fix will go live?


message 8: by Louise (new)

Louise | 36 comments Probably by tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for your patience =)

Mosdl | 14 comments Trying to get other users friends and running into an issue. Using the api, with oauth, I get "must be signed in". If I plug the generated url into the browser (this is a mobile app), it works fine and the data is returned. Is this a separate issue?

Ettore Pasquini Mosdl, thanks for reporting this, we'll look into this soon. Is this the same issue you reported here: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/5... ?

Yeah, same issue, I realized it was a separate issue. Forgot to delete this post.
