IG Business: watch public user media and create a comment

I set the trigger “watch public user media” for Instagram business.
I established a connection with my business account.

Then I also have to select a page. What page? I some of mine business pages, so I selected the same account as the connection.

I entered the username I wanna watch. For testing I entered the IG name of my girlfriend.

When I test the scenario with create a comment (IG Business) I get this:


Unsupported post request. Object with ID ‘1795659089xxxxxxx’ does not exist, cannot be loaded due to missing permissions, or does not support this operation. Please read the Graph API documentation at Graph API - Documentation - Meta for Developers (100, GraphMethodException)

If I watch my insta I can create a comment with this scenario, but who wanna comment his own post?!
I wanna create a post on the watched ig name.

What am I doing wrong?

Anyone got what I want?

up! having exactly the same issue! did you solve it?

Thanks a lot!

So the question is: Does „Get Media“ only works for own content/media? Or also for public Media?

For your Own , not for public


Oh, then I wonder why other API services offer those information.

So we also cant use “create a comment” on a public media? :worried:

I found this: Access Verification - Meta App Development - Documentation - Meta for Developers

I’ll go this long way
