  1. I am currently developing a native Android application for Twitch and want to make use of the OAuth2.0 API. Since the Twitch Authorization Server doesn't seem to support the PKCE (Proof Key for Code Exchange), i will have to put my client secret into my native application, which isn't secure at all, because the app can easily be decompiled.

    This is a requirement for all native apps, as stated by the IETF in RFC 7636 (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7636).

    I hope to see this implemented soon, because this poses a huge security risk for all native apps and their developers.

  2. Brief description

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/authentication/getting-tokens-oauth

    When you get a token, it returns token_type as bearer

    If you take this value as is and call helix endpoints it doesn't work as helix only accepts Bearer

    How to reproduce

    Generate a token
    Construct a header using the returned data by concatenating elements from the returned JSON
    `Authorization: ' . tokentype . ' ' . accesstoken

    Call a helix endpoint
    Get a 401
    Expected behavior

    Twitch accepts Bearer and bearer as valid

    or

    returns Bearer as the token type when fetching a token.

    Additional context or questions

    I'm not sure what the correct…

  3. First of all, thank you for providing developers with valuable tools and apis for twitch. I greatly appreciate the code samples that were provided, however I noticed that there was only a code sample for the authorization code flow. I feel that developers would greatly benefit from examples of how best to work with the implicit code flow. I know this has been an issue for me. For example, if you create an electron application with a modern javascript framework that manages routing, the redirect part of code flow becomes a sticking point. Most of them will use localhost for…

  4. It was very useful for my little game but I would have liked a vip tag.
    Except that it has served me perfectly. Thank you very much.

  5. The new API endpoint 'Get User Follows'
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/users#get-user-follows

    Could include more data than what is currently provided.
    The legacy endpoint alternative offers a lot more but not all of this info is required by default.
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users-follows

    My suggestion would be to at least provide the 'notifications' as well as the 'logo' info. To keep the requests at an optimal size by default, extra request parameters can be given such as:

    ?showLogo=true&showNotifications=true
    (which can default to false when not present)

    or

    ?verbose=true
    (which will provide an equivalent response to the legacy variant)

    The new endpoint should also only show this extra…

  6. The chat_moderator_actions topic in the PubSub documentation appears to only work with a broadcaster OAuth token. This prevents third-party modding tools that don't use some kind of centralized system from accessing information that is vital for effective modding (such as which mod performed an action, actions that aren't otherwise visible like unbans and viewing and approving messages filtered by AutoMod).

    With a centralized system the broadcaster could provide a token somehow that the moderators don't need to have access to directly, however with purely clientside tools this is not feasible. I'm also not sure why moderators should not have access…

  7. CRUD for bet as streamer
    CRUD for bet as viewer

    As streamer:

    • Being able to start/cancel a bet from endpoint
    • Being able to state who won from endpoint
    • Maybe get stats about the bet (invested coins, status, nb of participant, ...) (as Events or/and as HTTP API)

    As viewer:
    - Receive an Event when there is a new bet
    - Get bet info using endpoint (remaining time, title, bet A, bet B, nb of people who bet)
    - Place a bet using endpoint
    - Event win or lose

  8. When streamers run ads, they'd like to know how long the PreRolls are disabled for.

    Please extend https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#start-commercial to return preroll data

    For example

    {
    "data": [{
    "length" : 60,
    "message" : "",
    "retry_after" : 480
    }]
    }

    becomes

    {
    "data": [{
    "length" : 60,
    "message" : "",
    "retryafter" : 480,
    "preroll
    ends": unixTimestamp
    }]
    }

  9. Honestly this whole documentation is a bit sloppy. There should be clearer examples of using the APIs as I had to go Googling how the authentication actually works as the headers seem to be different than this suggests.

  10. When you have an application that uses channel points quite a lot and also reacts to them and does things, the chat is spammed with the redemption notifications which can negatively affect the chat experience.

    I suggest adding a flag to custom redemptions that prevents the chat notification from being sent.

  12. The current APIs max out at 100 items per page, and while this is fine for most channels, there are some where you end up having to paginate for a long time to reach the end of the list.

    Given there is rate limiting in place, would it be possible to make an endpoint (or use the current endpoints and add an "all" query parameter) with a high rate-limit cost that allows for the bulk fetching of this information?

  13. The webhook/response for subscriptions returns a payload as

    (webhook example)

    {
    "data": [
    {
    "eventdata": {
    "broadcaster
    id": "casterID",
    "broadcastername": "aCaster",
    "gifter
    id": "",
    "giftername": "",
    "is
    gift": false,
    "planname": "Some Subscription ($4.99)",
    "tier": "1000",
    "user
    id": "someID",
    "username": "someName"
    },
    "event
    timestamp": "2020-10-16T17:33:46Z",
    "event_type": "subscriptions.subscribe",
    "id": "1iyAnn4NpVMZ9jYv0HDOQP4SfpS",
    "version": "1.0"
    }
    ]
    }

    But it doesn't include information about if it was a 1/3/6/12 whatever subscription or not.

    Please extend the payload (for both webhooks and the API) to contain this information about if it's a multimonth purchase

  15. This guide descibes how Partners can assign someone a lifetime sub that doesn't count to rev of points

    https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/lifetime-subscriber-guide-for-partners

    The API doesn't present any information as to who is a lifetime sub or not.
    So we cannot guestimate sub points (or revenue if we are building revenue reporting tools for streamers we work with) from the API as we don't know who is a lifetime sub or not.

    Please provide an API endpoint that lists these subs, which would be "cheaper" than a boolean flag added to the subscribers endpoint

  16. I believe that updating the redemption to have a status of CANCELLED should remove any active cooldowns on the custom reward

    I understand that it needs to go into the cooldown state immediately so that other users cannot redeem it again, however setting the status to CANCELLED is our way of signalling that the event did not complete. It's how the streamer says "sorry I can't do that, have your points back".

    It makes little sense for the redemption to stay in cooldown when the custom reward has failed to be completed.

  17. With the helix oAuth requirements

    It is often a problem for the less experienced developer to get started, as they don't understand certain rules and limitations around the API.

    The less experienced developer may then choose to generate and leak their client secret, or app access tokens on their "front end only" websites in error.

    So I propose that if the token is identified as App Access/Client Credentials, Twitch adds "CORS Headers" to block the request

    Consider also CORS headers to the token fetching endpoints for App Access generation as well?

  19. We should be able to CRUD the Role Manager that is in the Streamers Dashboard. This would resolve multiple UserVoice requests including CRUD for VIP, Mod & the Editor migration from v5.

  20. Hello, there are unfortunately always VODs where no category is listed, when I create a clip there, the problem is that the clip does not appear in any category, that is very annoying for me as a streamer. That's why I ask you to vote for this idea, so that Twitch has a possibility to change the Twitch category after the clip is created.

    For example, if a wrong category is set, there must be a possibility to change it later.

    example bug clip list: https://dashboard.twitch.tv/u/terminatorsaw2k/content/clips
