  1. The article mentions that a response will include

    {
    "accesstoken": "prau3ol6mg5glgek8m89ec2s9q5i3i",
    "refresh
    token": "",
    "expiresin": 3600,
    "scope": [],
    "token
    type": "bearer"
    }

    But that's not the case, if no scope is providen, scope doesn't exist on the response. Also the refresh_token isn't present on the response.

  2. I would really like if "animatedpreviewurl" could get included in the new API.
    Previously/currently it was return from the old API endpoint Get Video (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/videos#get-video).

  3. I know this idea has been asked on the support forums over the years, so I'd like to suggest another use case. I have some friends that I like to gift subscriptions to at a channel we all enjoy. As a programmer, it pains me to enter my credit card in several times to give each person a sub when I know there's probably a better way that can be achieved programmatically. Ideally I'd like to have a system where I could push a button or have a cron go off and give subs to several people.

    To avoid abuse…

  4. Since private messages are unreliable for bots (and bots sending them are frowned upon - and I totally get the reason), can we have the ability for bots to send "ephemeral" messages to chat - messages that only a given user will see. This will also be useful for streamers. These can be displayed in the same way as "you can now redeem X award" or (better) like "You have gotten drop X/hype emoji X" messages.

  5. Would be amazing if the IRC commands API would include /chant
    I know it's still an experimental feature but it would be cool for things like "Start Chant" channel points redemption, etc.

  6. Stop asking for my mobile number to register applications or for any reason at all.

    You already get 2fa by sending the verification code through email. Sending it through mobile is an added security risk. It only makes it easier to compromise the account when hackers can just contact the mobile operator to be able to clone our mobile number.

    The verification code through email is plenty. I have secure passwords on both email and twitch accounts, I can make sure they are safe, I can control that. I can't control what my mobile operator does with my SIM ID.…

  8. When I'm building an extension. I use a custom server to help simulate the Twitch Hosted test environment.

    To that end it would be useful for me to automatically fetch the new CSP fields from the API

    The Endpoint https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-extensions Get Extensions currently provides a wealth of information about an Extension, including what things are available and enabled and which slots the extension can exist within.

    With the Dashboard deployment to allow entry of the new CSP fields. This endpoint should be updated to include the CSP data.

    Then I can auto collect the changes into my local test rig…

  9. If a user is banned from chat due to email or phone "cross ban" as per:

    Curbing Ban Evasion
    
    We know there are many reasons someone may need to manage more than one account, so you can verify up to five accounts per phone number. That said, to help prevent ban evasion, if one phone-verified account is suspended site-wide, all accounts tied to that number will also be suspended site-wide. Users won’t be able to verify additional accounts using a phone number that is already tied to an actively suspended account. 
    
    At the channel-level, if one phone-verified or email-verified account

  10. Currently, this endpoint: https://tmi.twitch.tv/group/user/<CHANNEL>/chatters

    Can be used freely without any authentication or scope.

    This is definitely being abused with the hate raids. It's been abused by malicious actors for a long time now. Why has this endpoint been created in such a way that there is zero barrier for a malicious actor to obtain user data?

    Even the Get Polls endpoint (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-polls) requires both authentication and a scope!

    How has that Get Chatters endpoint not yet been removed an replaced with a secure Helix endpoint, as stated here: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/39145294-chatters-viewers-helix-api-endpoint

    This is not ok.

  11. The new endpoint only allows the broadcaster to run commercials: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#start-commercial

    The old endpoint also allowed users with the editor role to run commercials: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/channels#start-channel-commercial

    I believe it is of value to allow access to editors as they used to. Editors should be trusted enough to choose their own tools to support the broadcaster, as has already been the case.

    Plus, if an editor's token can be used the editor's name will appear in the Activity Log on the Dashboard, rather than the broadcaster's name (assuming some sort of webpanel or bot has to be used, that the broadcaster has…

  12. Currently the rate limit headers "ratelimit-reset", "ratelimit-remaining" and "ratelimit-limit" are not accessible on browser / cors requests due to browser restrictions.
    I request that Twitch adds the "Access-Control-Expose-Headers" header on the helix endpoints so that tools running in a browser can follow the rate limits without guessing if they are still within the limits or having to watch for 429 HTTP codes.

  13. It would be great if an authenticated user could look up their own list of subscriptions. Currently, we allow a broadcaster to look up their subscribers, which is channel -> users, but we do not have a way to look up users -> channel. The workaround today is to get all follows for a given authenticated user and then one-by-one look up if the authed user is subscribed to the followed channel.

  15. Would be useful to create/update/remove a running goal.

    To update/change the target whilst one is running if we get a surprise spike in subs
    Or to easily be able to auto start a new goal if the first goal is completed.

  17. Currently twitch embed does not support vod chat and neither does the helix api.

    Twitch only allows vod chat to be seen directly on the website.

    This data could be used in a great number of ways by third-parties particularly video editors.

    Please add a way to retrieve chat for vods

    No? ok. Sadge

  18. Enjoyed the introductionary steps into the twitch API. Since Twitch CLI readme file is mentioned, it's unnecessary to provide excerpt of it (about homebrew installation), or at least provide all of the possible installation options in this page

  19. Currently the Get Clip endpoint (/clips) is really plain, and not in a really good way. If we could make more complex queries, that would reduce the number of requests we need to make; therefore, less load on Twitch API itself. If I want 50 English clips from the top clips of a single game, let's say League of Legends, I will have to make 3 requests, ignore those that aren't English, and finally list the top 50. But if I can query a game's top clips, AND the language, I can get those 50 clips all in one request.…

  20. An update on Jan 31, 2019 gave channel moderators the ability to add comments to users within chat. There is currently no way to use the API to be able to set or retrieve comments for users in chat.

    This should be available to the broadcaster and all moderators within a channel.

    To add a mod comment to a user, the endpoint could take the following data as inputs:
    - User: {user's name}
    - Moderator: {mod's name}
    - Broadcaster: {broadcaster's name}
    - Comment: {comment to be applied}

    On success, this would return the following:
    - Success: {true}
    - date: {date}…
