iOS Question

ios google+ api youtube subscribe to a channel

I am trying to subscribe a user to a youtube channel. So the user logs in to an iOS app, hits subscribe, and I would subscribe the user to a predefined channel.
So I have an app created with the YouTube Data API v3 service enabled.

scope: kGTLAuthScopeYouTube

GTLServiceYouTube *service = self.youTubeService;

GTLYouTubeSubscriptionSnippet* snippet = [GTLYouTubeSubscriptionSnippet object];
snippet.channelId = @"UCGRjJrpD2bmk9Ilq6nq80qg";

GTLYouTubeSubscription* subscription = [GTLYouTubeSubscription object];
subscription.snippet = snippet;

GTLQueryYouTube *query = [GTLQueryYouTube queryForSubscriptionsInsertWithObject:subscription part:@"contentDetails,snippet"];

[service executeQuery:query
completionHandler:^(GTLServiceTicket *ticket,
GTLYouTubeSubscription *subscription,
NSError *error) {
/* Callback */
NSLog(@"subscription:%@", subscription);
NSLog(@"error:%@", error);

}];


the server returns:

error:Error Domain=com.google.GTLJSONRPCErrorDomain Code=-32500 "The operation couldn’t be completed. (Required)" UserInfo=0x1005d3c20 {error=Required, NSLocalizedFailureReason=(Required), GTLStructuredError=GTLErrorObject 0x10054faa0: {message:"Required" data:[1] code:-32500}}


Any ideas why would this happen?

I am using the sample youtube app.

The sample url on https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/docs/subscriptions/insert#examples
works correctly and from what I can tell I am doing the same thing above in objc code.

POST https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/v3/subscriptions?part=contentDetails%2Csnippet&fields=snippet&key={YOUR_API_KEY}

Content-Type: application/json
Authorization: Bearer ya29.AHES6ZQSBniofZhyVX4kfCn0-gVKKeiGayMcQHjTfWxMyffndRus7w
X-JavaScript-User-Agent: Google APIs Explorer

{
"snippet": {
"resourceId": {
"channelId": "UCDPM_n1atn2ijUwHd0NNRQw"
}
}
}

200 OK

Answer

The solution was to replace:

GTLYouTubeSubscriptionSnippet* snippet = [GTLYouTubeSubscriptionSnippet object];
snippet.channelId = @"UCGRjJrpD2bmk9Ilq6nq80qg";

with this:

GTLYouTubeSubscriptionSnippet* snippet = [GTLYouTubeSubscriptionSnippet object];
GTLYouTubeResourceId* resourceObject = [GTLYouTubeResourceId object];
resourceObject.channelId = @"UCGRjJrpD2bmk9Ilq6nq80qg";
