Public playlists not being returned in the web API

Public playlists not being returned in the web API

I use this website to create setlist playlists in my account. However when I try to fetch the playlists using GET /users/:userId/playlists these do not show up in the response. These are created as public playlists, but for some reason do not show up as such on my profile which I'm guessing has something to do with it. I'd prefer to continue using the client credentials flow so I'm guessing I can't use /me/playlists which I suspect would solve the issue. Any tips? The following playlists are missing:

Thanks!

Only playlists that are publicly displayed ate someone's profile will return "public": true.
In the case of those playlists, they are missing from your profile, and return "public": false.

To let those playlists work with Client Credentials, you should add them to your profile through the app yourself.

Ah I didn't realize there was an add to profile option, thank you!
