Getting the Reviewer information from Review_Id[ Edited ]
October 2016 - last edited October 2016 by Terry W
I am trying to get reviews for my business by using the Google My Business API: https://mybusiness.googleapis.com/v3/accounts/103137463372821427441/locations/5818877926581592670/re...
Along with the reviews, the only information which i get in the response is the "Reviewer Name". How to get the reviewer information like email, address, photo etc ?
Is there any API which gives us this information or is it possible to backtrack the reviewer details from the Review_Id that is provided in the response of the above mentioned API ?
Re: Getting the Reviewer information from Review_Id
Hi @Amit P,
At this time, the only available fields for the Reviewer object are the displayName field and the isAnonymous field, which means you can only obtain the name of the reviewer or whether the reviewer is anonymous, and nothing else about the reviewer via the Google My Business API.
No, you can’t use the reviewId, which is the encrypted unique identifier for a specific review, to backtrack a reviewer’s profile details. This is similar to the Google My Business UI where you can only get limited information about the reviewer and there shouldn’t be any Google APIs that offer this functionality. You can, however, send a POST request to reply to the specified review with the reviewId in the URI via the Google My Business API.
