LINE Messaging API


This is a C# implementation of the LINE Messaging API.

Getting Started

This repository contains SDK itself, as well as base samples and Visual Studio templates.

.Net Standard Class Library

Use NuGet manager to import the library to your project. NuGet Gallery | Line.Messaging


There are several samples which uses the SDK. You can find detail instructions in each directory.

Visual Studio Templates

The template can be found in Market Place, but if you want to tweak it, the source is also available.


Basically, there are three steps to use the SDK.

  • Instantiate LineMessagingClient.
  • Implement a class which inherits WebhookApplication.
  • Override the method to handle the event.

LineMessagingClient Class

This is a class to communicate with LINE Messaging API platform. It uses HttpClient-based asynchronous methods such as followings.

Task ReplyMessageAsync(string replyToken, IList<ISendMessage> messages)
Task ReplyMessageAsync(string replyToken, params string[] messages)
Task PushMessageAsync(string to, IList<ISendMessage> messages)
Task PushMessageAsync(string to, params string[] messages)
Task MultiCastMessageAsync(IList<string> to, IList<ISendMessage> messages)
Task MultiCastMessageAsync(IList<string> to, params string[] messages)
Task<ContentStream> GetContentStreamAsync(string messageId)
Task<UserProfile> GetUserProfileAsync(string userId)
Task<byte[]> GetContentBytesAsync(string messageId)
Task<UserProfile> GetGroupMemberProfileAsync(string groupId, string userId)
Task<UserProfile> GetRoomMemberProfileAsync(string roomId, string userId)
Task<IList<UserProfile>> GetGroupMemberProfilesAsync(string groupId)
Task<IList<UserProfile>> GetRoomMemberProfilesAsync(string roomId)
Task<GroupMemberIds> GetGroupMemberIdsAsync(string groupId, string continuationToken)
Task<GroupMemberIds> GetRoomMemberIdsAsync(string roomId, string continuationToken = null)
Task LeaveFromGroupAsync(string groupId)
Task LeaveFromRoomAsync(string roomId)

Parse and process Webhook-Events

Use GetWebhookEventsAsync extension method for incoming request to parse the LINE events from the LINE platform. See FunctionAppSample/ as an example.

using Line.Messaging;
using Line.Messaging.Webhooks;
using Microsoft.Azure.WebJobs;
using Microsoft.Azure.WebJobs.Extensions.Http;
using Microsoft.Azure.WebJobs.Host;
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.Http;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace FunctionAppSample
  public static class HttpTriggerFunction
    static LineMessagingClient lineMessagingClient;

    static HttpTriggerFunction()
      lineMessagingClient = new LineMessagingClient(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["ChannelAccessToken"]);
      var sp = ServicePointManager.FindServicePoint(new Uri(""));
      sp.ConnectionLeaseTimeout = 60 * 1000;

    public static async Task<HttpResponseMessage> Run([HttpTrigger(AuthorizationLevel.Anonymous, "post", Route = null)]HttpRequestMessage req, TraceWriter log)
      IEnumerable<WebhookEvent> events;
        //Parse Webhook-Events
        var channelSecret = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["ChannelSecret"];
        events = await req.GetWebhookEventsAsync(channelSecret);
      catch (InvalidSignatureException e)
        //Signature validation failed
        return req.CreateResponse(HttpStatusCode.Forbidden, new { Message = e.Message });

        var connectionString = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["AzureWebJobsStorage"];
        var tableStorage = await LineBotTableStorage.CreateAsync(connectionString);
        var blobStorage = await BlobStorage.CreateAsync(connectionString, "linebotcontainer");
        //Process the webhook-events
        var app = new LineBotApp(lineMessagingClient, tableStorage, blobStorage, log);
        await app.RunAsync(events);
      catch (Exception e)

      return req.CreateResponse(HttpStatusCode.OK);


Process Webhook-events

Create a class which inherits WebhookApplication class, then overrides the method you want to handle the LINE evnet in your class.

public abstract class WebhookApplication
    public async Task RunAsync(IEnumerable<WebhookEvent> events);
    protected virtual Task OnMessageAsync(MessageEvent ev);
    protected virtual Task OnJoinAsync(JoinEvent ev);
    protected virtual Task OnLeaveAsync(LeaveEvent ev);
    protected virtual Task OnFollowAsync(FollowEvent ev);
    protected virtual Task OnUnfollowAsync(UnfollowEvent ev);
    protected virtual Task OnBeaconAsync(BeaconEvent ev);
    protected virtual Task OnPostbackAsync(PostbackEvent ev);
    protected virtual Task OnAccountLinkAsync(AccountLinkEvent ev);
    protected virtual Task OnMemberJoinAsync(MemberJoinEvent ev);
    protected virtual Task OnMemberLeaveAsync(MemberLeaveEvent ev);
    protected virtual Task OnDeviceLinkAsync(DeviceLinkEvent ev);
    protected virtual Task OnDeviceUnlinkAsync(DeviceUnlinkEvent ev);

Finally, instantiate the class and run RunAsync method by giving the parsed LINE events as shown above.

See Line.Messaging/Webhooks/WebhookApplication.cs as processing event class.

class LineBotApp : WebhookApplication
  private LineMessagingClient MessagingClient { get; }
  private TraceWriter Log { get; }
  public WebhookApplication(LineMessagingClient lineMessagingClient,TraceWriter log)
      MessagingClient = lineMessagingClient;
      Log = log;

  protected override async Task OnMessageAsync(MessageEvent ev)
    switch (ev.Message)
      case TextEventMessage textMessage:
        await MessagingClient.ReplyMessageAsync(ev.ReplyToken, textMessage.Text);
      case ImageEventMessage imageMessage:
      case AudioEventMessage audioEventMessage:
      case VideoEventMessage videoMessage:
      case FileEventMessage fileMessage:
      case LocationEventMessage locationMessage:
      case StickerEventMessage stickerMessage:
