Retrieve read permission on other users' messages

0 votes

Currently I am working on a social feature where I can look at the feeds from my friends. A feed is, in essence, a message in the buddy service. But in this case I cannot get feeds from my friends because I don't have the permission to their messages.

Is there any way I can access their messages, or any walkaround that combine the buddy service with other services to achieve this feature?

Message in buddy service is something belongs to user and other user does not have option to get the access of it. If you want to have this functionality, you have to write the message of user in Storage service and ask user to give the permission as PUBLIC READ on it so that other user can get the access of it. Have a look here at Storage service and Applying ACL on the same.

Let me know if it helps.
