Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

long time no see I hope y'all fine,

Today I tried to use i.instagram api according on this source : https://instagram.api-docs.io/1.0/accounts

There is no enough documentation on that link, so when I tried to connect to got some data it refused and asked login as credential.

Q : Is there somebody ever used this API ?

It looks pretty straightforward. It indicates the request method, headers and body as well as what responses you can expect. What more do you need?

Hello thanks for reply,

please use this code : 

var settings = {
  "async": true,
  "crossDomain": true,
  "url": "https://i.instagram.com/api/v1/fbsearch/places",
  "method": "GET",
  "headers": {},
  "data": "{'q':'london'}"

$.ajax(settings).done(function (response) {

not entire code can be accessed, it need login, if this code executed it would result ajax response code 302 and then redirect to 301 finally 200 with link : 


N : thing what I need is how to access this instagram api account, from where I can register so that I can use this API.

The login page has a "sign up" link.

Hello, thanks for reply,

I've open according on that link but it redirect to www.instagram.com and my account.

Note : When I tried this code I was logged in on my instagram account but it still said : login required, please see my network console :

Request URL: https://i.instagram.com/api/v1/accounts/current_user?csrfKey=31611c89600aee8c6758f088c51bb00f
Request Method: GET
Status Code: 301 
Remote Address:
Referrer Policy: no-referrer-when-downgrade

/* redirect to  */

Request URL: https://i.instagram.com/api/v1/accounts/current_user/?csrfKey=31611c89600aee8c6758f088c51bb00f
Request Method: GET
Status Code: 403 
Remote Address:
Referrer Policy: no-referrer-when-downgrade

/* response / results */

{message: "login_required", error_title: "You've Been Logged Out", error_body: "Please log back in.",…}
error_body: "Please log back in."
error_title: "You've Been Logged Out"
logout_reason: 2
message: "login_required"
status: "fail"

this url (https://i.instagram.com/api/v1/fbsearch/places/?{'q':'london'}) could be opened on url address  browser if you had logged in on instagram account and the result was json, but cannot access in ajax.

A : If y'all have some information or know about this API please let me know, because I really need it.

Well I bet you can access it just fine with ajax if you log in with that browser first.  It's still the browser that sends the request, it's not like when you send an ajax request the browser does something completely different than when you click a link or type a URL.  They are all the same kinds of requests to the web server.

I've log in already when I used that ajax code, but still on the network XHR  result like on above, it need me to log in although I've logged in already,

A : If you not objection please try it, if you have instagram account log in first and then use that code to access it to get some data.

That's all I can ask from you..

I would really appreciate it, because I really need this API.

Many Thanks

I don't have an instagram account, but if you're having problems using it then hopefully you can contact them or look for a forum that they provide.  It looks to me like you need to login on the page that they redirect you to, if you're saying that doesn't work then I don't know why.
