  1. In the channel settings, you may specify a "profile accent color" to represent your brand.
    Right now, this isn't exposed in the API at all.

  2. Follow up to https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/39228787-extend-the-clips-api-to-include-recreation-from-so

    to request the offset of a clip being added to the API

    Use cases include

    • Deduplication of Clips submitted to a clips submission thing
    • Recreate the clip from a copy of the vod.
    • Using the offset to easily spot "hype" points of a stream for channel editors making highlights to focus on that point aka "heatmaps of popular stream time points"
    • From CSharpFritz: Show clips in the order that they naturally occurred, and not the time that they were created

  3. The chat_moderator_actions topic in the PubSub documentation appears to only work with a broadcaster OAuth token. This prevents third-party modding tools that don't use some kind of centralized system from accessing information that is vital for effective modding (such as which mod performed an action, actions that aren't otherwise visible like unbans and viewing and approving messages filtered by AutoMod).

    With a centralized system the broadcaster could provide a token somehow that the moderators don't need to have access to directly, however with purely clientside tools this is not feasible. I'm also not sure why moderators should not have access…

  4. Given the fact that Twitch had to take down the follow/unfollow api's due to bot programs that are out there - my suggestion would be to have an approved set of developers that propose and showcase their applications.

    This way Twitch could bring back the follow/unfollow API and any service or developer that was in violation of Twitch's TOS regarding the API could be warned and ultimately have their access and credentials removed.

    Twitch Developers could review the logs of which applications were connected with BOT services and immediately shut those down rather then removing the api in its entirety…

  6. When a "gift bomb"

    there is no way to gather all the gifts into one event.
    Each gift in a bomb should have a ID to link it to the header event.

    IRC sends a header saying "x is giving out y subs to the community"
    But the USERNOTICE events, don't say they belong to that event.

    Please provide a way to group the events, something as simple as a "parentid" in the child gifts subs, that'll link to a "childid" in the header event.

    This header and extra ID's need to be provided on the PubSub event…

  10. We third party dev's often build tools that assist with moderation actions/services for broadcasters.

    We tell Moderators to enable 2FA, but we have no way to check it.

    It would be useful to block Logins to our tool if 2FA is not enabled. But 2FA data is not surfaced in the API and there's no way to require a User to be 2FA during the login/oAuth loop.

    I'd like to see the users endpoint(s) provide 2FA status.
    I expect this to be behind the user read or openID scopes.

    openID allows email verified. Why not 2fa status (for example)

  11. 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

  12. We can get stream tags, but we can not filter streams by a tag ID. However it can be easily done from the official app. Like to get streams tagged as "Family Friendly" or "Squads", or "Mode: Battle Royale" etc.

    Please provide API for 3d party developers :)

  13. The v5 endpoint contains the follower's account creation date, the new endpoint (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users-follows) does not.

    Knowing when a follower created their account is very useful to moderators monitoring recent follows to keep an eye on potentially problematic users (new account could mean a previously banned user returning) or to detect mass follows from bots (which often have a similar account creation date). Monitoring recent follows is especially useful in follow-only chat mode.

    While it is possible to get the account creation date from the "Get Users" endpoint (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users) and then merge it with the follower data,…

  14. With the removal of the Follow Create endpoint.

    A "non moderation bot" can no longer be automatically added to a channel.
    The owner of the bot would have to "login" to the account and manually follow the channel(s) the bot joins.

    A "non moderation" bot doesn't run moderation commands, so giving it "mod" wouldn't make sense. (Which would bypass the follow requirement)

    Please provide a way to "authorise adding a bot to a channel" that will auto follow the bot to the channel. For this purpose

    This could be similar to how Discord does bots, where to add a bot…

  15. Moderators are able to add a reason/description whenever they ban people in chat (/ban [username] reason)

    This information is currently only available in the "not allowed to use" GraphQL-api, but should also be added to the documentet endpoints; /moderation/banned and /moderation/banned/events

    (Ban-reason is different from moderator-comments.)

  16. Similar to the Bits Leaderboard, please add a gifted subs leaderboard API, so we can see everyone who has gifted a sub in the channel.

  19. In a similar fashion as

    https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/39228784-extend-clips-api-to-provide-the-mp4-url-so-editors

    The Videos API should be extended to provide the (original) VOD to authenticated users where that user is an Editor or better of the channel.

    As in unmuted.

    For the purpose of backing up/taking a copy of the Twitch stream and/or taking that content (that the streamer owns) for use on other platforms.

    Editors can already do this via the Video Dashboard, so the API should support this also

  20. For the purposes of GDPR it would be useful to have the following webhooks:

    • When a Streamer installs an extension
    • When a streamer activates an extension
    • When a streamer deactivates an extension
    • When a streamer uninstalls an extension.

    The most important one is the uninstall, it allows us the third party to be notified of an uninstalled.

    The Shopify platform has this with the rule that a third party should, automatically delete all Store (and that stores customer data) 30 days after that hook triggers.

    We need/should do the same, delete any broadcaster, or broadcaster viewer (and subscribers) data 30…
