Allow Channel Editors to use Helix Raids API
With the new Raids API, it should mirror IRC where channel editors can trigger raid/unraid. Currently, this is not supported (need broadcaster user access token). Until this functionality is added, I will not be migrating to Helix Raids
I second this. If the app is running as a service account (like a bot account) to perform actions on behalf of a broadcaster, it would make sense that there is a way for the broadcaster to grant that user permission to initiate a raid, since it is already possible to allow, for example, the bot to create markers in the stream.
Perhaps some role assigned to the bot account plus a combination of channel:manage:broadcast and channel:manage:raids would allow a raid to be invoked vicariously?
I used to have this in my chatbot so that I could automate the posting of X streamer's "Raid message" 3 times into the channel before automatically triggering the raid, all within 1 command that is used by either the caster or a mod. I can no longer do this without having to implement the handling of tokens for accounts that ARENT my bot's account. Big Issue there, when we should just be able to use moderator tokens.
