# News: [Updated] You can soon add and use paths to your LIFF endpoint URL

[Updated] You can soon add and use paths to your LIFF endpoint URL

Added on May 29, 2020

This specification change was scheduled to take place in the last week of May, 2020, but in consideration of the impact on existing LIFF applications, we will apply the following changes:

  • As announced on May 20, 2020, we will add the functionality to allow paths in endpoint URLs.
  • We plan to change specifications in such a way that existing LIFF apps will not be affected.
  • Specification change is scheduled for the second half of June 2020.

We apologize again for the inconvenience caused by the repeated specification changes.

Currently, developers are able to enter the path (/path), query parameters (?key=value), and URL fragments (#URL-fragment) in the URL in the LIFF tab of the console, but only the domain name and query parameters of the URL string are used.

With the upcoming update, these improvements will be made to the LIFF endpoint URL:

  • The path (/path) can be used.
  • The URL fragments (/#URL-fragment) can no longer be entered.

For example, if you're deploying the LIFF app on Heroku, you can enter https://{Heroku app name}.herokuapp.com/path/?key=value as the Endpoint URL in the Basic information section of the LINE Developers console.

LIFF URL with paths appended in the console

The URL scheme must use https.

Being able to use the paths you entered in the console means less time is required to publish new web pages. For example, when publishing a page for a campaign, you can register the campaign page such as https://example.com/2020campaign directly in the endpoint URL.

Note

The endpoint URLs registered in the console and the URL scheme for opening a LIFF app differ in the use of URL fragments. Be careful not to confuse them.

Endpoint URL:
https://example.com/2020campaign or https://example.com/2020campaign/?key=value
You can't add URL fragments.

URL scheme for opening a LIFF app:
https://liff.line.me/{liffId}/path_A/path_B/#URL-fragment
You can add URL fragments.

We apologize for the confusion caused by the previous specification. We will continue to improve the quality of the services we provide to our developers and we greatly appreciate your understanding.
