Getting the list of Facebook pending requests of a user

Getting the list of pending facebook requests of a user a few weeks back was as easy as calling https://graph.facebook.com/me/apprequests?access_token={user_access_token}

We discovered around the 1st October that some of our requests were failing in production, without any more clue than some "OAuthException : access_token invalid" messages in our logs.

It appears that FB changed the way their endpoint react to /apprequests call. Of course, they didn't bother telling us.

The previous url does not work anymore. Switching the user accesstoken to the app accesstoken as documented does not work (as usual with FB documentation). It returns an error.

Instead, the following call wil yield the correct result : https://graph.facebook.com/{user_id}/apprequests?access_token={app_access_token}
