As a general recommendation, try to use endpoints from the API sites @BAUER102 listed above. They are more stable than endpoints on www.roblox.com. They also have better documentation, which is a bonus :slight_smile:

Talking about web endpoints, could it be possible to add something to grab all the transactions of a group?

It could be quite helpful to those trying to map old data before adding a system to do so (Analytics data) or with those who haven’t done that yet.

I’ve also found:
https://friends.roblox.com/docs

I’m not entirely sure if that one is intended for devs, considering it has something to do with matching by phone numbers…

It would be great if there was a way we could use a search API for people, groups, and etc.

Hey Developers,

We are planning to remove this API endpoint in a few weeks: This endpoint has been disabled: https://www.roblox.com/Game/LuaWebService/HandleSocialRequest.ashx

It is not possible to call this endpoint using HttpService, but we are posting this notice because some developers may be hitting this endpoint using their own web servers. If you are using it, please switch to one of the newer endpoints recommended below:

Can we not use IsFriendsWith, IsInGroup, GetGroupRank, or GetGroupRole anymore?

Make sure to read (at the very least…) the title of threads you’re posting in – “deprecated web endpoints”. This does not affect the API in-engine.

Hi developers!

We will be removing the already-deprecated HasBadge.ashx web endpoint on October 19th, 2020

To offer a brief explanation, we’re removing this endpoint since it is part of a deprecated Badges system that is no longer being actively maintained on the platform.

For game developers, please note that there are no in-game Lua code changes required going forward, as both the HasBadge and HasBadgeAsync Lua functions will remain operational after the shutdown of the old HasBadge.ashx web endpoint - https://assetgame.roblox.com/Game/Badge/HasBadge.ashx

This announcement is mainly for informational purposes, as well as to potentially notify any third party services or sites that are using the HasBadge.ashx endpoint of this upcoming removal.

For any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out! We would be happy to offer any clarification on what to expect moving forward. Thank you!

Hello Developers,

We will be removing avatar shop search functionality from the following roblox.com endpoint on November 4th, 2020:

This endpoint will default to searching the library catalog, and you can continue using it for library catalog search.

For avatar shop search, please update any browser plugins or tools to use the new endpoint: https://developer.roblox.com/en-us/articles/Catalog-API.
