  1. Brief description

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/authentication/getting-tokens-oauth

    When you get a token, it returns token_type as bearer

    If you take this value as is and call helix endpoints it doesn't work as helix only accepts Bearer

    How to reproduce

    Generate a token
    Construct a header using the returned data by concatenating elements from the returned JSON
    `Authorization: ' . tokentype . ' ' . accesstoken

    Call a helix endpoint
    Get a 401
    Expected behavior

    Twitch accepts Bearer and bearer as valid

    or

    returns Bearer as the token type when fetching a token.

    Additional context or questions

    I'm not sure what the correct…

  2. What's been made available for the events from PubSub is nice, but currently there is no way to know of when a unfulfilled reward has been marked as complete by a Streamer/Mod. Since the event is already well structured, all that would need to be done is simply re-send the same event with the status property updated to reflect that it was fulfilled (either just using the existing "FULFILLED" value or possibly a new value like "MANUALLY FULFILLED").

  3. Now that Twitch is utilizing IGDB instead of Giantbomb.

    Please add the IGDB Game ID to the Helix Fetch Game endpoint.

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-games
    https://api-docs.igdb.com/#game

    Then we can easily lookup a game on Twitch with the game on IGDB without getting lost in search/selecting the wrong one with a similar name

  4. Being able to order some of the Helix endpoints by date would be useful

    Follower for example would need in some cases 11k+ calls to the follower endpoint to just get the 100 followers who had followed for the longest time.

    This would also be good in the subscription endpoint if cumulative and streak get put into the Helix API

  5. It would be convenient to have the ability to query Bits transactions based on broadcaster id and user id. This is extremely helpful for Extensions with lots of transactions and saves on calls to the API that would be necessary for paginating until the desired transaction is found.

  6. When a user connects to IRC, the USERSTATE command gives a emote-sets list, this does not contain unlocked bit emotes and I'm guessing it also doesn't include follower emotes and animated emotes. This should be fixed.

  9. Similar to

    https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/38375011-mature-flag-on-get-streams-endpoint

    But for the Get Channel information endpoint

    We should also be able to modify the flag via the Set Channel Information endpoint

  10. The new API endpoint 'Get User Follows'
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/users#get-user-follows

    Could include more data than what is currently provided.
    The legacy endpoint alternative offers a lot more but not all of this info is required by default.
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users-follows

    My suggestion would be to at least provide the 'notifications' as well as the 'logo' info. To keep the requests at an optimal size by default, extra request parameters can be given such as:

    ?showLogo=true&showNotifications=true
    (which can default to false when not present)

    or

    ?verbose=true
    (which will provide an equivalent response to the legacy variant)

    The new endpoint should also only show this extra…

  11. 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

  12. When streamers run ads, they'd like to know how long the PreRolls are disabled for.

    Please extend https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#start-commercial to return preroll data

    For example

    {
    "data": [{
    "length" : 60,
    "message" : "",
    "retry_after" : 480
    }]
    }

    becomes

    {
    "data": [{
    "length" : 60,
    "message" : "",
    "retryafter" : 480,
    "preroll
    ends": unixTimestamp
    }]
    }

  13. We currently have API's to

    • Upload Video
    • Collect videos into categorys
    • Update Stream title

    We do not have any API's to manage

    • Contents of a ReRun Playlist
    • Start a ReRun
    • Stop a ReRun

    I'd like those API's please.

  17. An update on Jan 31, 2019 gave channel moderators the ability to add comments to users within chat. There is currently no way to use the API to be able to set or retrieve comments for users in chat.

    This should be available to the broadcaster and all moderators within a channel.

    To add a mod comment to a user, the endpoint could take the following data as inputs:
    - User: {user's name}
    - Moderator: {mod's name}
    - Broadcaster: {broadcaster's name}
    - Comment: {comment to be applied}

    On success, this would return the following:
    - Success: {true}
    - date: {date}…

  18. In V5, it is possible to get all emotes that existed on the platform via both
    "get-all-chat-emoticons"
    and
    "get-chat-emoticons-by-set" (when no sets are provided)

    This currently has no equivalence in Helix, and also has no listed migration path.

    This request is to create an endpoint that returns the list of all emote sets (and ideally their last update time) such as "get-all-emote-sets". This would allow a user to then get all emotes via the "helix get-emote-sets" endpoint that currently exists.

  19. With the addition of animated emotes there is no way to tell from the emote API responses of GetChannelEmotes and GetEmoteSets if a new emote ( id starting with "emotesv2_") is a normal emote or an animated gif emote without downloading it and checking the file contents.

    Would be nice to have either a "format" field that tells you "png" or "gif", or at least a "is_animated" bool field for each emote.

    Use cases: Whenever you wanna show emote stats or emote info for a channel (like in a chat clients or stats website or emote panel) you often wanna…

  20. Rather than having to get all clips from a created time frame window.

    It would be nicer to be able to get all clips from a given video ID. Both from a performance perspective and ease of use perspective.

    It's then easier for editors to collate clips from a given stream for highlight compilation creation
