Publishing With App Token: publish_actions fails, publish_stream is OK

Jan 8, 2013 at 9:12 AM

hi

i'm using an app access token to post to a user's wall. i am using CreatePostRequest to build the post and Send to send it.

I've found that i get an error "The user has not granted the application the permission to automatically publish feed stories" if the application has requested the publish_actions permission. If i re-auth the app and request publish_stream, it works ok.

the fb docs appear to suggest that i can post to a user's wall with either publish_actions or publish_stream and i would prefer to stick with publish_actions and avoid the second-screen permission request.

anyone have any idea what the situation is here?

cheers,
rob
