    Completed  ·  Travis Brown responded

    As announced at last week’s Developer Day, we now have set of Channel Points endpoints and EventSub subscription types. This initial release may address much of the feedback captured here, if you still have features you would like so see, please feel free to file more UserVoice ideas under the “API” category.

  2. Please provide an API to CRUD polls and observe the results in real time when a poll is ran.

    Ability to read historical/past polls would also be nice

  3. All of the new emote and badge endpoints can be accessed using an App Access Token except for /chat/badges which needs a User OAuth Token.
    I don't see why this endpoint needs a user token since the badges can be viewed publicly on the subs page and It doesn't reveal any private info about a user.

  4. There's an error in Section "Using cURL to get the information".

    curl command needs param -X if you want to specify the method, for example GET in this case:
    curl -X GET "<url>"...

  5. It is impossible to get the emotes for a channel from the API via Channel ID

    The API uses "emotesetID" and there is no API endpoint that provides the emotesetID for a given channel

    Please provide a way to get the emotes for a channel via ChannelID/ChannelLogin

  6. Twitch currently completely lacks any sort of API testing feature. This causes extreme difficulty for debugging code made with the Twitch API.

    This is unacceptable when the vast, vast majority of websites/software that have a public API have some sort of testing feature that sends tests through the same API endpoints as production.

    For example, a piece of software I was working on recently worked great, but it turned out that events for subscriptions was broken. We have absolutely no way to test subscription events through the Twitch Pub/Sub API besides actually buying subs. I didn't actually fix it until…

  7. https://dashboard.twitch.tv/u/USERNAME/settings/moderation/blocked-terms

    There is no API for automation of adding/removing/listing a given channels blocked-terms

    When adding/removing a term modlogs display in chat as

    barrycarlyon used: /addblockedterm THISISATEST.
    barrycarlyon used: /deleteblockedterm THISISATEST.

    But these are not valid chat commands either.

    Please provide an API to CRUD channel blocked terms

  9. Now that Twitch is utilizing IGDB instead of Giantbomb.

    Please add the IGDB Game ID to the Helix Fetch Game endpoint.

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-games
    https://api-docs.igdb.com/#game

    Then we can easily lookup a game on Twitch with the game on IGDB without getting lost in search/selecting the wrong one with a similar name

  11. Please provide a way for third party developers to obtain currently available songs and meta data related to those songs.

    Both in a "get all songs" method and "search for songs"

    Search should be

    • free text (like game/category search)
    • song ID (to get specific song data)
    • artist ID (to get songs by an artist)
    • album ID (to get songs on an album)
    • by category/genre (to get say only Dance music or chill out music)

  12. I would like to be able to react to a user disconnecting my application from their account without having to constantly poll with the user's token to ensure that it is still valid. If I were to constantly poll for all users that have used FrankerFaceZ's website, I would be making thousands of requests per minute. My servers don't need the unnecessary load. Your servers don't. There is a better way.

    For this I request implementation of a revocation webhook, similar to those used by GitHub (ref1), Facebook (ref2), Slack (ref3), Discord (ref4), etc.

    To clarify, I don't want a…

  13. The "GET helix/search/channels" endpoint only gives the game_id and not the game title, this would mean extra API calls that could be avoided if you included the game name in the response.

  15. I added this to a comment on the existing idea request for a full CRUD set of API endpoints for the "Schedule" feature, but given that I believe a whole lot of use could be made of a "Read" endpoint for upcoming scheduled streams for a given channel, I thought it worthwhile to add this as a separate (and hopefully, much easier and quicker to implement) idea request.

    Please give this thorough consideration Twitch dev and product teams!

  18. The Get Drops Entitlements GET endpoint currently responds with a pagination, however, unlike the rest of the documentation, it is typed as a raw string.

    This request is to either,
    - update the documentation to acknowledge that it is different from the rest of the API
    - Update the endpoint to match the rest of the API and use Pagination: {cursor:""}
    - In the case this is a documentation error (Having only noticed when checking the patterns, Not in usage) fix the documentation.

  19. Add an endpoint to edit the stream title and currently played game, the equivalent in v5 was:

    PUT /kraken/channels/<channel ID> with "status" and "game" fields.

    The PUT /helix/streams/tags endpoint accomplishes parts of this, an implementation could look like this:

    PUT /helix/streams [required scope: user:edit:broadcast]
    Request fields: user_id to identify the user whose stream is to be edited, game_id to identify the game played and title to set the stream title/status.

  20. Please provide an official API to get

    • Subscriber Badges
    • Bits badges
    • Other kinds of badges that are channel specific/modifiers there of

    For a channel.
