Getting user profiles

You can use the iOS SDK to get a user’s LINE profile information. User profiles include a user’s user ID, display name, profile media (image or video), and status message.

Before you begin

Make sure you have completed the following:

Getting user profiles

To get a user’s LINE profile information, call the getProfileWithCompletion method. If the call succeeds the user’s profile information is returned in the profile argument. If the API call fails, the error argument is a non-nil value. You can use the error argument to get an error code and description.

The following is an example of how to save the user profile information into NSStrings.

[apiClient getProfileWithCompletion:^(LineSDKProfile * _Nullable profile, NSError * _Nullable error) {


        NSLog(@"Error getting profile: %@", error.description);

    } else {

        LineSDKProfile * profileInformation = profile;

        NSString * displayName = profileInformation.displayName;
        NSString * userID = profileInformation.userID;
        NSString * statusMessage = profileInformation.statusMessage;
        NSURL * pictureURL = profileInformation.pictureURL;

        NSString * pictureUrlString

        // If the user does not have a profile picture set, pictureURL will be nil
            NSString * profilePictureUrlString = profilePictureURL.absoluteString;



Executing the completion block in a different queue

getProfileWithCompletion executes its completion block in the main queue. To execute the completion block in a different queue, specify the queue by calling the getProfileWithCallbackQueue method.

[apiClient getProfileWithCallbackQueue:dispatch_get_global_queue(DISPATCH_QUEUE_PRIORITY_HIGH, 0)
    completion:^(LineSDKProfile * _Nullable profile, NSError * _Nullable error) {
