    New LINE Developers console released

    As previously announced, today we released a new version of the LINE Developers console.

    This version of the console fixes several reported problems and adds various improvements to create a smoother, more reliable experience. Here are some highlights of the new release:

    Better grouping of settings

    Each channel's first tab is now called Basic settings and contains the essentials. The second tab is named after the channel type (LINE Login, Messaging API, or Clova skill), and contains settings relevant to that type.

    Find providers by typing

    Use the search field at the top of the provider list to filter by name and easily find the provider you're looking for.

    Every role in one place

    In the previous version you had to manage Admin, Member, and Tester users on two different pages. Now, you can find and add users of any type on the Roles tab.

    We hope the new console makes it easier for you to create and manage channels. We'll continue working to improve your experience with future releases.

    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.

    Introducing the redesigned LINE Developers site

    We are excited to introduce our new, redesigned LINE Developers site. We hope that this renewal will improve developer experience, making it easier to use the LINE Platform products. There are no major changes in the console functionality. Here, we'll take you through some of the key changes to the site.

    Changes in the console

    • We have added the provider list screen so that you can easily select the provider of the channel that you want to configure.
    • Now the role of the logged-in user is displayed in the provider and channel lists.
    • You can quickly access tools such as Flex Message Simulator and Bot Designer through the tool list in the navigation bar.

    Changes in the documentation site

    • Each page has breadcrumbs at the top so that you can easily keep track of the page structure.
    • The new navigation bar allows easier access to the API reference for each product. You can also browse the API reference within the feature guide as before.
    • Each page of the feature guides has a table of contents on the right side so that you can quickly move across sections.


    We will continue to make improvements to the LINE Developers site and our developer documentation to make it easier for you to develop apps using our products.

    If you want to keep up-to-date with our latest developments, add the LINE Developers official account as a friend on LINE using the QR code or the button below.

    New article on converting an MID to a user ID

    Users are identified using a user ID in LINE Login v2 or later instead of an MID in v1. If you have integrated LINE Login v1 into your app and want to migrate it to v2 or later, you need to convert MIDs to user IDs.

    For more information, see Converting an MID to a user ID.
