Q.1. What is the difference between the LINE provider and the LINE channel?

Ans:- The LINE provider is the entity that offers the app for your channel. For example, you can use your own name or the name of your company or business as the provider. You can create providers in the LINE Developers Console.

The LINE Channel is a communication path for using the functions provided by the LINE Platform in the services developed by the provider. You can create channels in the LINE Developers Console. Channels must have a name, description, and icon image.

Q.2. What is a LINE user ID?

Ans:- It is a unique identifier for users. Note that the user ID is only unique to an individual provider. The same LINE user will have a different user ID for different providers

  • The value is generated by the LINE Platform, not by a user 
  • This is different from the LINE ID on LINE used to search for friends
  • Different user IDs are generated based on the provider of the channel 
  • As long as channels have the same provider, regardless of whether the channel is for LINE Login or Messaging API, the same user ID is used for the users of the channels
  • The user ID value is a string that matches the regular expression, U[0-9a-f]{32}

Ans:- LINE Developers Console allows developers to create up to 100 channels per provider.
