Profiles Resource

Current information about Live Connect is now available in the Windows Live Developer Center. The information in the following sections is provided for legacy purposes only.

The Profiles resource has one collection, named Profiles. The Profiles collection contains a single entry, which contains the user's profile data. A profile entry contains a link to the status message collection, which contains a single status message entry.



A GET request on a Profiles resource returns a list of all the feeds in the Profiles resource; specifically, the Profiles Collection. The response body appears as follows:

  "BaseUri" : "",
  "ProfilesLink" : "cid-<CID>/Profiles"

The CID value specifies the Windows Live user account for which you will retrieve profile data.

For a description of the scopes in the resource model, see Messenger Connect Scopes.
