Now I want to get the GUID of the contacts, but apparently there is no way to get that. Since anything interesting in yahoo requires GUID, this means most interesting things are impossible to do.
So is there any way to get the contacts guid, given the user's guid and oauth perms, or is tis impossible?
Hi, I am spent lots of time how to fetch contacts from my yahoo mailid using yahoo api.but i am unable to do that one. i am facing problem in creating GUID can u tell me how i can create GUID programatically in java.which i can use and fetch the contacts thanks
Ok so I get everything I dont need(Do most people really care when was this contact last updated?) but not the guid of this contact(which IMO is obviously the most important field), EVEN if they are a yahoo user, with a yahoo_id.
Not sure of the language you are using but to get a users GUID for your app - the user must first give your application access to their information - this includes their GUID. Giving permission to the app is done during the bbauth or oauth process. The provided SDK's(for whatever programming language you use) are a good reference for this.
