PUN 2 Simple Friends Question


I wanted to verify, if I have a user add a friend to his account (which I store in his profile), there's no query I could run as to whether that friend id exists or not. Is that correct?



  • Hi @jpac,

    Thank you for choosing Photon!

    Whether you call FindFriends from Photon Realtime or PUN or call AddFriends/RemoveFriends from Photon Chat we don't verify the existence of the user. So any valid string can be used as UserId.

    There is no way to find out if a user exists in Photon using a UserId string.

    FindFriends will tell you that a user is offline if it does not exist.
    AddFriends/RemoveFriends will just add/remove that UserId string to/from the list of friends server side.
