API Getting empty json list from a certian link but everything else works fine


I successfully authenticated and can access api/v1/me/ and do stuff in my profile but when trying to access blocked players from https://online-go.com/api/v1/me/blocks I get response 200 and JSON is just empty list [] compared to the browser it returns a list of profiles blocked as expected

Pretty sure my authentication is fine as I can get my profile info using https://online-go.com/api/v1/me/ and perform actions like block_game, block_chat using players ids and I confirmed these action using the browser but I fail to get the list

import requests

url = 'https://online-go.com/api/v1/me/blocks'
headers = {'Authorization': "Bearer " + auth_token}
r = requests.get(url, headers=headers)

It works fine if I added the cookies from the browser tho but I didn’t need cookies before for other actions in my profile.

Does it need special values in the header? why other actions are working fine except this

Yeah for that endpoint you’ll need to pass the sessionid cookie, that’s true for a few endpoints.


So, I managed to get around the sessionid by using https://online-go.com/api/v1/meblocks instead

The catch is… this one returns all previously blocked profiles with their status (it maintains those already unblocked)

{'blocked': player_id1, 'block_chat': False, 'block_games': True}, <-- blocked games
{'blocked': player_id2, 'block_chat': False, 'block_games': False}, <-- no longer blocked
{'blocked': player_id3, 'block_chat': True, 'block_games': True} <--- blocked chat and games
