  1. 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. Add subscriber count to a Helix endpoint. This is important information for many streaming tools. Scope is an open question; whether anyone should be able to see someone's subscriber count or if this is only visible by the broadcaster's authentication.

  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

    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.

  7. Using just helix it is impossible to get the title/status or game of a channel when it is offline.

    Which makes it difficult for third party tools to obtain title/game to check it should match what we want before the channel goes live, so that notifications for the channel (email etc) have the correct game/title.

    Additionally bot commands such as

    "!caster - caster link to caster was last seen playing game"

    are difficult to achieve using pure Helix

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  11. A user's created timestamp is not yet available through Helix. The updated timestamp is personally less useful but would be nice for consideration.

    We launched the channel.raid EventSub subscription type in early March.

    We are not adding a channel.host subscription type at this time, though we will continue to consider this request.

  13. Get Streams does not denote if the stream is mature or not.

  14. Please provide an eventsub notification topic for sub notifications

    Which would be a "clone" of messages appearing in chat for sub/resub notifications

    For resubs the chat message and emote placement would be included

  15. 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.

  16. Features like Channel Points are restricted for Affiliate accounts only.

    The fact that not all developers are streamers themselves too, makes it harder to test features like PubSub on the channelpoints topic. It makes them dependent on other affiliate streamers to test their codebase.

    It would be nice if it was possible to have alternative ways to access those. either in a developer sandbox mode for testing, or by a waiver of the regular affiliate requirements for developers.

  17. Some users have display names (the "user_name" property) that do not work for IRC or even in URLs. This requires an additional call to /helix/users with the ID to get the login which I find more crucial than the display name that is already included.

    Here are two examples:

    The user "riotgames" (ID 36029255) has a display name with a space. "twitch.tv/Riot Games" does not redirect to "twitch.tv/riotgames".

    The user "hanryang1125" (ID 103825127) has a display name with Korean characters. "twitch.tv/풍월량" does not redirect to "twitch.tv/hanryang1125".

    Neither of these display name would work for IRC, which goes for most display…

  18. 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.

  19. Using event sub it should be possible to ONLY use event sub to maintain a list of people subscribed to a channel. (after an initial paint from Helix)

    Using the current topics it's not possible to do that.

    I currently have to fetch once using helix, then use eventsub to get new subs.
    Then fetch again later using helix to account for unsubs.

  20. 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…
