  1. The ability to specify an existing reward that exists as a basis on creating a new reward would be useful. (This would clone the image/other set parameters as well to the new reward)

    Use case:

    Channel points to pick a "team" the user would be in.
    Today there are three teams, so clone the pre set (disabled) one three times.
    Tomorrow there will be four, so clone four times.

    Image would be the same for all four.

  2. The curl examples have done the same thing as the most recent batch of API endpoints that were added to helix and used, long form headers which is inconsistent with the rest of the API documentation

    curl --location --request GET 'https://api.twitch.tv/helix/channel_points/custom_rewards?broadcaster_id=274637212&id=92af127c-7326-4483-a52b-b0da0be61c01' \
    --header 'client-id: gx2pv4208cff0ig9ou7nk3riccffxt' \
    --header 'Authorization: Bearer vjxv3i0l4zxru966wsnwji51tmpkj2'

    compared to

    curl -H 'Client-ID: uo6dggojyb8d6soh92zknwmi5ej1q2' \
    -H 'Authorization: Bearer cfabdegwdoklmawdzdo98xt2fo512y' \
    -X GET 'https://api.twitch.tv/helix/analytics/extensions?type=overview_v1&extension_id=abcdefgh&started_at=2018-03-01T00:00:00Z&ended_at=2018-05-01T00:00:00Z'

    A more of a general issue as docs should be consistent with the examples across the board

  3. Pagination Support
    None.
    There is a limit of only 50 Custom Rewards on a channel at a time.

    It's unclear if that means 50 active rewards or 50 total rewards. It should be more plain text/clear.

    The help article

    https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/making-the-most-of-channel-points?language=en_US

    doesn't mentioned this limit either.

  4. channel information endpoint provides "gameid", "gamename" and "title" for live streams, but it doesn't return the stream uptime as displayed below a live stream; would be useful to acquire this via API.

  5. Web chat users got access to the new "replies" feature, where you can mark your message to be a reply of another message.

    My suggestion is to add official documentation on how third parties can use this feature (for sending messages and for parsing received messages to be a reply)

  6. POST https://id.twitch.tv/oauth2/token?client_id=nt_secret=nyo51xcdrerl8z9m56w9w6wg&grant_type=client_credentials

    This POST request - if attempted with curl in CMD or windows subsystems linux, you need to escape &clientsecret &granttype with preceeding escape\

    e.g.

    POST https://id.twitch.tv/oauth2/token?client_id=uo6dggojyb8d6soh92zknwmi5ej1q2\&client_secret=nyo51xcdrerl8z9m56w9w6wg\&grant_type=client_credentials

    otherwise you WILL get missing client_secret regardless what you try, nothint about the actual curl gives you any hint regarding this.

  7. Please extend the error message of the start commercial API to be more useful

    Current response is

    { error: 'Bad Request',
    status: 400,
    message: 'channel for id "SOMEID" has recently ran a commercial' }

    It should return the retry_after remaining value

  9. I would love an option that mimics the team page's embed, that it shows the top streamer, or even a random active streamer from the team. So you can just embed one object, and Twitch will do the logic to show whoever is currently live.

  10. I would like to have a way to access a list of CHANNEL REWARDS available for a given channel. Without authentication would be nice, as anyone can see it in the website regardless.

    Another additional data provided if the API call is authenticated with the said channel, would be to see the status of the claims (Accepted, pending, refunded) so that the projects based on those can know if it was accepted or if it can be safely removed, in case of a refund.

  11. The Search Categories API doesn't seem to apply any "relevance" and direct matches are not often the first result.

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#search-categories

    Please apply relevance sorting.

  12. Description in "Getting tokens" isn't very clear and missing a link to "Getting Tokens: OAuth", where it's all explained in detail. That does confuse people

  14. If the request (Get Videos) is authenticated by a user, return a response field video_bookmark which returns, in seconds, where the user left off in watching the video. Or it could be requested at a different endpoint by video ID or something.

  15. The Get Videos API presents the duration as a string, example: "3h8m33s"

    Please add an additional key of "duration_seconds" of the time of the video in seconds.

  16. Many times, "viewer_count" response field doesn't change during several minutes (due to caching?). However, when you're watching a stream you can see how this data is refreshed each 20-25 seconds.

    Benefit: Increase the precision of apps that use this field

  17. It would be great if we could have a list of the status codes and their reasons so we can write code to prepare for handling those errors, instead of logging them and dealing with them as they happen - for all endpoints. These exist, for the most part, in a lot of the newer endpoint documentation, but a lot of the older endpoints were rushed in their documentation and we have little information on what responses to expect. Sometimes we get 200s, 202s, 400s, 410s - and having to just "wait" or try to plan for them is a…

  19. Please provide an API to allow developers to create update and fetch the new "profile block" at the top of panels.

    IE the new Social links section and the new bio/description block

  20. Authorized people whom are not the Broadcaster should be able to obtain Emote Slot information and upload emotes to those slots.

    Please provide an API to

    • get available slots
    • get what is in those slots
    • upload Art to those slots and specify names
