  1. Channel points have the ability to reward loyal viewers with real-time influence on the stream. Sometimes such requests may be filtered, which should trigger a rejection (therefore refund).

    Right now the only way to do this programmatically would be to use unsupported GQL APIs and risk the wrath of Twitch, or wrap the rewards queue in some way. This is the only blocker (technically speaking) for the workflow, as PubSub does expose enough information to respond to the redemptions automatically.

    I've had a proof of concept on my stream which gets redemptions via PubSub, filters the submission for offensive content…

    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.

  3. The Helix API currently has no way of retrieving a particular users online channels they are following. This is done by the "Get Followed Streams" API in v5 (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/streams#get-followed-streams)

    To get the same behavior in the current Helix endpoints would require TENS of requests each time you wanted to check for the presence of a channel coming online/going offline, instead of the nice single endpoint v5 offers.

    I've requested this endpoint for a few years now and was told v5 and Helix will have parity before v5 is officially shutdown, so I hope that's still the case.

  4. Helix is currently missing the Kraken endpoint /kraken/channels/<channel ID>/commercial

    Running a commercial through the API is e.g. very useful for broadcasters who want to assign that responsibility to someone else.

  5. Getting the list of a channel's editors for e.g. importing, and verifying editor status is something that is missing from Helix.

    Kraken had this in /kraken/channels/<channel ID>/editors and it was very useful.

    The ability to verify your Twitch editor status is necessary to properly interact with Twitch's editor features.

  6. 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…

  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. 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

  11. The clips API

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-clips

    doesn't contain enough information to recreate the clip from the source video, it doesn't have the length of the clip or the start point in the vod.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. The existing API endpoint for getting chatters predates User IDs and only returns usernames. It's also part of TMI and not officially documented, which could result in it being removed at any point without any notice.

    Many bots use the endpoint for channel loyalty points, and then have to make secondary calls to the get the user ID.

  15. Adding the commonly-used game title field to the Get Streams endpoint payload (similar to the addition of user name) will allow developers to make less calls for the data needed. In other words, Get Games would not need to be called for every game id to get one more field.

  17. Moderators are able to add a reason/description whenever they ban people in chat (/ban [username] reason)

    This information is currently only available in the "not allowed to use" GraphQL-api, but should also be added to the documentet endpoints; /moderation/banned and /moderation/banned/events

    (Ban-reason is different from moderator-comments.)
