  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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…

  9. The documentation for background color says "Custom background color for the reward" and provides no guidance on the "correct" format for the color (hex code with the # prefix)

  10. 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)

  11. Provide an API to get the currently playing sound from Soundtrack

    This will allow chatbots and overlays to display now playing information

    On a per channel basis return

    • Song Name
    • Song Artist
    • Song Album
    • Song meta data such as Soundtrack Category etc
    • Song box art
    • Song album box art
    • Song Duration (in seconds or hh:mm:ss format/other RFC format)
    • Time song started playing

  12. I saw that Twitch just announced Cooldown options for Channel Points Redemption (https://twitter.com/TwitchSupport/status/1311055756922359808).
    It would be very great if this could be added to the API as well

  13. 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

  15. There should be a field to indicate the owner "clientID" or a "mine: true/false" to represent if the rewards returned by "Get Custom Rewards" belong to the calling clientID or not.

    OR

    add an optional query string parameter

    | name | required | type | description
    | -------------------------------------------------------
    | mine | no | boolean | if true only return rewards created by this developer/ClientID

  16. The "GET /kraken/channels/<channel ID>/teams" endpoint is currently missing in the Helix API.

    I propose to either
    a) add the teams to the "GET /helix/channels" output, or to
    b) add new team endpoints to Helix altogether. (Teams need some love!)

  18. As a developer, i want to be able to create a reward in the disabled state.

    This is currently not possible upon creation, as the is_enabled parameter is ignored. The documentation currently reflects this correctly.

    Thus, this currently requires the reward to be created and then a PATCH request to be made right afterwards, updating the just-created reward.

    Allowing this would, for example, allow "secret" rewards to be created before being "released to the public" or allowing the Broadcaster to utilize the dashboard management page to choose between a set of pre-created rewards.
