Yahoo now supports Attribute Exchange

Hi All,

We're very happy to announce that we've *finally* enabled Attribute Exchange for all sites. Name, email address, profile pic, gender, timezone, and language preference are now available via Attribute Exchange.

More details are here:

Cheers!

  • Hello Allen,

    Please provide me any sample code to do the Attribute Exchange. I'm using C# .net. I have a solution using which I can get user profile using OAuth.


    Thanks,
    Amar

    if you want to add most openID and OpenAuth providers to your website you can use http://www.NyaLog.in. it is very easy to implement and manage.

  • Hi,

    The signature of the OpenID response seems not to be correct when Profile contains "&"...

    Have you already heard about this issue ?

  • Hi,

    In my basic profile a tried to modify the name like this : "name&". (http://profiles.yahoo.com/edit/basicinfo)

    Afterward, I performed an OpenID request asking for AX attributes :
    [ext0] => http://axschema.org/namePerson/friendly
    [ext1] => http://axschema.org/namePerson
    [ext2] => http://axschema.org/contact/email
    [ext3] => http://axschema.org/person/gender
    [ext4] => http://axschema.org/pref/language
    [ext5] => http://axschema.org/pref/timezone
    [ext6] => http://axschema.org/media/image/default

    Note that you have to ask severals attributes because the problem occurs only where the OpenID response is made by POST (auto-post form).

    If you want more testing or explanation, contact me on charlesmarais2 [at] yahoo.com.

    Charles.

  • Hi,

    The issue seems to have been fixed. The signature is now correct.

    Just a question :

    When the name is for example "toto&", I receive "toto&amp;" for the name.
    Shouldn't I have received "toto&" ?

    Charles.

  • Hi Charles,

    I don't think it is fixed because I am not aware of any changes having
    been made to the system that causes the issue.

    If the user's name contains "toto&", we should return "toto&", not
    "tot&amp;".

    Thanks,
    Yu Wang

    There are no details there.
    No-one's going to use your APIs if you hide the documentation - lif eis too short
