Creating a Channel
To start using the LINE SDK for iOS, you first need to create a Channel for your app. This page describes the steps to create a Channel.
What’s a Channel?
On the LINE Platform, all services (applications, games, tools, websites) must belong to a Channel. Once you have created a Channel, you’ll be issued a Channel ID and will be able to use APIs and other features. Your Channel must have a name, a description, and an icon image.

There are 2 types of statuses for Channels, DEVELOPING and PUBLISHED. Newly created Channels are set to DEVELOPING. Once development is completed, you can make a request to have your Channel published. The status will be changed to PUBLISHED, once your request is approved.
- DEVELOPING Only developers can use the Channel.
- PUBLISHED All users can use the Channel.
A Channel for your app is automatically created when you create a business account with LINE Login from the LINE Business Center. Before you start, make sure you have completed the following:
- Registered your profile information on the LINE Business Center
- Created an “enterprise” (“company”). Note: Individuals can use the “Sole Proprietor” option.
