[API] How to get public playlists that aren't on a user's profile?

I want to be able to get a list of my own public playlists from the API regardless of whether they have been added to my profile or not. Currently when I make a request against /playlists I get the public playlists on my profile, but not those public playlists that are not on my profile.


The public playlists not on my profile can still be viewed by making a request against /playlists/<playlist_id>, but there is no way for me to find playlist_id without navigating to that playlist in the browser (which I would like to avoid).


Is this a bug? Or is there another way of accomplishing this?

Hey @inbl7, thanks for reaching out!


Right now, it's only possible to access playlists that are shown on a user's profile. With private/public playlists, a user can control whether other people can open the playlist by link. This doesn't affect whether the playlist is shown on their profile or not. There's some more info here!


Let me know if that clears things up!


Happy coding,
