Important for getting your game to all audiences, PolicyService helps you build gameplay components that can be made compliant with various national regulations for multiple countries. This service is used to query information regarding policy compliance for players around the world based on age range, location, and platform type.
Returns policy information about a player which is based on geolocation, age group, and platform. The structure of the returned dictionary is as follows:
|AreAdsAllowed||Boolean||Any experience that includes immersive ads||When true, the player might see immersive ads within an experience.|
|ArePaidRandomItemsRestricted||Boolean||Any experience that has paid random items||When true, the player cannot interact with paid (via in-experience currency or Robux) random item generators.|
|AllowedExternalLinkReferences||Array of strings||Any experience that references external links||A list of external link references (for example, social media links, handles, or iconography) a player is permitted to see. Possible values include: "Discord", "Facebook", "Twitch", and "YouTube".|
|IsPaidItemTradingAllowed||Boolean||Any experience that allows users to purchase virtual items that they can trade with other players||When true, the player can trade virtual items that they purchased with in-experience currency or Robux.|
|IsSubjectToChinaPolicies||Boolean||Any experience that is available in China||When true, an experience should enforce compliance changes. See this forum post for more information.|
Like any async call, this needs to be wrapped in a pcall and error-handled properly. A full list of possible error messages and their reasons is as below:
|Instance was not a player||Dev's usage - The parameter is not a Player instance|
|Players not found||Internal error - Players object missing|
|This method cannot be called on the client for a non-local player||Dev's usage - This method cannot be called on the client for a non-local player|
|GetPolicyInfoForPlayerAsync is called too many times||Internal error - GetPolicyInfoForPlayerAsync is called more than 100(current setting) times before http response coming back|
- LocalizationService:GetCountryRegionForPlayerAsync(), returns country/region code string according to player's client IP geolocation
