Method: userProfiles.guardians.list

Returns a list of guardians that the requesting user is permitted to view, restricted to those that match the request.

To list guardians for any student that the requesting user may view guardians for, use the literal character - for the student ID.

This method returns the following error codes:

  • PERMISSION_DENIED if a studentId is specified, and the requesting user is not permitted to view guardian information for that student, if "-" is specified as the studentId and the user is not a domain administrator, if guardians are not enabled for the domain in question, if the invitedEmailAddress filter is set by a user who is not a domain administrator, or for other access errors.
  • INVALID_ARGUMENT if a studentId is specified, but its format cannot be recognized (it is not an email address, nor a studentId from the API, nor the literal string me). May also be returned if an invalid pageToken is provided.
  • NOT_FOUND if a studentId is specified, and its format can be recognized, but Classroom has no record of that student.
