  1. Currently, the only API endpoint which can return the current status of the channel is /search/channels, which contains a "is_live" boolean attribute.

    So when I want to know if a channel (knowing its ID) is live through the API, the only way is by calling /channels first to get the channel name, then by calling /search/channels with the channel name, and finally sort the results to find the correct channel.

    This is excessively time and ressources consuming, for both developpers and Twitch servers (two API call instead of just one). Would be great to add a "is_live" field in /channels…

  2. Currently, the only way for a bot to know its chat limits is by hard-coding them. Even using the (undocumented?) user chat info endpoint isn't sufficient to determine what hard-coded limits to apply today, since whisper limits depend on when an account was verified.

    It would be much better for a bot to query a (documented) endpoint and retrieve its rate limits in that way.

  3. Given that EventSub only uses an App Access Token.

    It's possible for a developer to obtain user authentication and never store the token (and/of refresh token if one exists (ie implict has no refresh)) and only utilise EventSub.

    Please provide an endpoint

    https://api.twitch.tv/helix/users/scopes

    With a required parameter of:

    id - a userID

    That accepts ONLY An App Access Token

    That returns

    {
    data: [
    'array',
    'of'
    'scopes'
    ]
    }
    

    To allow developers to check what scopes a user has authorised the developer/ClientID to utilise

    Thank you for the feedback! We will consider this, but for now we do not have immediate plans to include cheermotes with this endpoint.

  5. There are a lot of bots and some of them get gifted subs because they are just a "normal" user. anotherttvviewer, carbon14xyz etc. are all known bots and I think the developers of the bot should have the option to mark them as bots like in discord. It would be easier to understand for streamers, and they shouldn't get gifted subs.

  6. I want my Twitch Extension to be able to copy text to clipboard. It seems as though that the iframe allowed permissions are limiting this. Therefore I request for Twitch staff to add clipboard-read; and maybe clipboard-write;

  7. It would be useful if we could accept or reject a list of redemptions for handling batch accept/reject events.

    Some examples of usage might be using Channel Points to join a game or a queue where a limited number of people can be accepted in. An app may need to reject a long list of users.

    We have a use case on an upcoming feature and I'm concerned we'll easily hit the rate limit if a few of our larger channels make use of it.

  8. This guide descibes how Partners can assign someone a lifetime sub that doesn't count to rev of points

    https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/lifetime-subscriber-guide-for-partners

    The API doesn't present any information as to who is a lifetime sub or not.
    So we cannot guestimate sub points (or revenue if we are building revenue reporting tools for streamers we work with) from the API as we don't know who is a lifetime sub or not.

    Please provide an API endpoint that lists these subs, which would be "cheaper" than a boolean flag added to the subscribers endpoint

  9. Currently the API doesn't support marking a reward out of stock manually. This may be beneficial for rewards that take some time to process where specifying a hard cooldown wouldn't be appropriate.

    In addition, support for a custom "out of stock" message may benefit some developers. Using sound alerts as an example, if a streamer is in "focus mode" and needs to concentrate on what they are doing, rather than say the default "out of stock" it could say "StreamerX is focusing right now".

  10. When a reward is created by the API, we should be able to prevent the streamer from being able to change values that we set. They should still be able to disable or delete the reward.

    By locking the reward, we can offer a similar experience to all users and prevent confusion when one reward is drastically different from the same reward on another stream.

    Just some use cases below would benefit from this.

    Currently, we can set the max number of users of a reward per stream and our backend could be enforcing the same amount of rewards redeemed.…

  11. Add the ability to trigger a reward redemption from the API - similar/same to what happens when clicking the reward in the chat dialog.

    For example an extension has added a custom reward XYZ and to trigger a certain action in or for the extension this reward needs to be used.

    So instead of the extension telling the viewer "please redeem reward XYZ to do this or that" and then waiting for the redemption, immediately trigger the redemtion via the API - saving the viewer the need to browse and look for the redemtion in question.

    Result of this API…

  14. 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.

  16. Specifically talking about:
    - Get Channel Information: helix/channels
    - Search Channel: helix/search/channels
    - Get Users: helix/users

    Those endpoints all return data concerning a specific channel, but all of the JSON responses are different and no single endpoint contains all the data you need.

    Say I have a user id and want to get the profile picture of that channel, whether it is live and the title of the broadcast.

    For the profile picture I have to hit the 'Get Users' endpoint.
    For the 'isLive' info I need to hit the 'Search Channels' endpoint, and then find the correct user from…

  17. Currently you can subscribe to a webhook to receive a handful of types of events. The only way to see when a stream goes live is to subscribe to a topic for that particular user. It would be incredibly useful to specify a category and receive a webhook whenever a stream goes live in that category.

  18. for /helix/streams can we add:
    profileimageurl from /helix/users
    and the game name (and potentially boxarturl) from /helix/games

    This is very basic info related to the stream and would be really nice to have available in a single call rather than 3 separate calls. This is especially important with bots that are trying to get the status of many streams in a short period quickly racking up api calls

  19. It has become difficult to obtain whats on the frontpage by region.

    Please provide an API to collect/obtain this data, it's useful for moderation to understand if/why we get a influx of viewers/chatters and can allocate additional bot rules/filters and/or moderation staff

  20. For example, the YouTube Data API has the "fields parameter" to accomplish this, an example being: items(userid,username,title)

    https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/getting-started#fields
