We will be removing the api proxy online status endpoint on January 31st, 2023:

Please switch over to the following replacement endpoints on presence api:

Thank you all for raising concerns about the incorrect last online time field in /v1/presence/users.

Hello Developers,

We will be deprecating the following endpoint on March 8. It has been moved to a new endpoint.

Please let us know if there are any problems or regressions.

Old API:

http://www.roblox.com/build/universes

Optional parameters include:

  • startRow: Pagination value which specifies the group of universes to show

  • groupId: The group universes to use

New API:

Programmatic access can be found in the Develop API.

For the user’s universes, use:

The new APIs differ in the following ways:
