    Notice about system maintenance

    We're performing system maintenance at the below time. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Scheduled maintenance time

    September 26, 2019 16:20-16:50 JST (+9 GMT)

    The maintenance will only last a few seconds and will take place somewhere in this time window.

    Impact

    Messaging API, LINE Login, and LIFF operations may result in errors. Specifically, the following events can occur:

    • Messaging API (https://api.line.me/v2/bot/*) returns an error with status code 500.
    • An error with status code 500 is returned when a user logs in with LINE Login or starts a LIFF app.

    Try out Messaging API calls in your browser

    We've added a Try button to these sections of the Messaging API reference documentation:

    Clicking Try reveals a form that enables you to test the API call right then and there. You'll need to enter some required information, such as your channel access token (found in the console). Depending on the call, there are also other fields to fill in.

    For now, this feature is only enabled for a small number of operations. We plan to increase the number in future releases to cover more Messaging API functionality.

    Flex Message Simulator Update 1 (β) released

    We released Flex Message Simulator Update 1 (β). This version contains sample Flex Messages with more sophisticated layouts based on the new features of Flex Message Update 1.

    note Limitations

    We can't guarantee that the appearance of a Flex Message in Flex Message Simulator Update 1 (β) exactly matches the rendering on a target device. A single Flex Message may be rendered differently from device to device. Factors that affect rendering include OS, LINE version, screen resolution, language setting, and fonts.

    Notice of problems with migration of LINE official accounts (resolved)

    We encountered problems during the planned migration of accounts from the deprecated Developer Trial plan to the new free plan, which started on June 11, 2019. The problems have now been resolved. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this caused.

    Date and time of outage

    From: June 11, 2019
    Until: June 18, 2019 14:33 JST(GMT+9)

    Cause

    In Japan and Thailand, accounts that were migrated from the old Developer Trial plan to the new free plan incorrectly retained their old limit on number of friends (50).

    Details

    When a user tried to befriend an account that had reached the limit of 50 friends, this error was displayed:

    Sorry, the account you are trying to add cannot accept any more friends.

    We have now removed the limit on the number of friends.

    LINE will continue improve the quality of its services to prevent future outages. Thank you for your understanding.
