JDBC Driver for Instagram

Build 23.0.8868


Create, delete, and query Comments on a media object. Requires the instagram_basic and instagram_manage_comments scopes.

Only the select, delete, and insert operations are supported.


The driver will use the Instagram APIs to filter results by MediaId and will execute other filters client-side within itself.

  • The following query returns all comments on all media in your account. UserId will be null if the comment is from an account that is not a business account.

    SELECT * FROM Comments

  • To query comments for a specific media object, MediaId is required. The MediaId column supports the = operator. For example:

    SELECT * FROM Comments WHERE MediaId = '1501471279105199430_5380790872'


Create a comment on a media object with the following rules:

  • MediaId and Text are the only available and required fields.
  • The total length of the comment cannot exceed 300 characters.
  • The comment cannot contain more than 4 hashtags.
  • The comment cannot contain more than 1 URL.
  • The comment cannot consist of all capital letters.
For example:
INSERT INTO Comments (MediaId, Text) VALUES ('1501471279105199430_5380790872', 'My comment text #instadevelopers')


UPDATE is not supported.


Id (the comment's primary key) is required. For example, the following query removes a comment either on the authenticated user's media object or authored by the authenticated user.

DELETE FROM Comments WHERE Id = '1668776136772254'
