Maintenance notice: LINE Developers Console design update
We will perform maintenance on the LINE Developers console at the below time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Scheduled maintenance time
November 26, 2019 12:00-13:00 JST (+9 GMT)
The LINE Developers site will be unavailable during the maintenance period.
This maintenance will not affect LINE Platform products such as LINE Login and the Messaging API.
This maintenance brings a new design to the LINE Developers console. With the updated design, you will be able to use LINE Platform products more comfortably and efficiently.
The main changes are as follows.
- The provider list will have a filter function, letting you easily choose a provider.
- When adding or editing an IP address on the Security tab, you can see the registered IP address.
- You can manage the Admin, Member, and Tester users on the same tab. Before, Testers were managed on a different tab.
We also plan to improve usability by changing certain specifications.
LINE will continue to improve the quality of its services.
Users can no longer add LIFF apps to Messaging API channels

LIFF apps added to the LINE Login channel have no restrictions and can use all LIFF v2 functions.
Transition to the LINE Login channel
To continue using the LIFF app added to the Messaging API channel, re-add the LIFF app to the LINE Login channel. Once re-added, LINE Developers console will issue a new LIFF app ID. As a result, please take note of the following:
note Remove LIFF apps added to Messaging API channel
- If you're using LIFF v2, change the LIFF app ID specified in
- The LIFF URL used to launch LIFF（e.g.：line://app/1234567890-AbcdEfgh）will change.
To avoid confusion, delete the LIFF app added to the Messaging API channel after adding to the LINE Login channel.
Notice of domain name change for certain endpoints
