  1. It would be great if an authenticated user could look up their own list of subscriptions. Currently, we allow a broadcaster to look up their subscribers, which is channel -> users, but we do not have a way to look up users -> channel. The workaround today is to get all follows for a given authenticated user and then one-by-one look up if the authed user is subscribed to the followed channel.

  2. Kraken equivalent[1] of Get Users Follows offers a way to sort query results by either creation date, last broadcast or login name. There's also a way to sort results in either ascending or descending order. Helix however doesn't offer any ways of sorting results of your query and results are always shown descending without giving you the option to get those in ascending order.
    In case you need to fetch exactly the first follow or get followers that have been live last, it becomes problematic if your query has lots of results - you'd need to paginate through all of…

  3. 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.

  5. The follow notification flag is very helpful for loyalty bots to reward users for having notifications turned on. Notifications are a huge part of having users re-engage the broadcaster, and being able to reward that will bring more viewers to the stream. This was present in Kraken, but not in Helix.

  6. The Search Categories API doesn't seem to apply any "relevance" and direct matches are not often the first result.

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#search-categories

    Please apply relevance sorting.

  7. Having written one and a half client libraries for IRC now, I wish Twitch Chat was exposed over a more consistent protocol.

    • Allow read-only access to chat messages (and other related live data and events) via PubSub, with clean re-designed JSON Chat message payloads
    • No longer identify channels and users by their login name, use user IDs for all purposes
    • Send messages via an API call

    Most importantly, I would expect a redesigned API to think of edge-cases in a better way than IRC currently does. For example, what happens on IRC if a channel gets suspended, or a channel…

  9. 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.

  10. Endpoint to check if userID has a known bot or verified bot flag.

    Which currently exists as a undocumented v5/kraken endpoint.

    usercase: what rate limit does my bot have? I can check if my bot has mod but I can't check if my bot has verified bot.

  11. Add a occured_at timestamp that tells you when the content in the clip was actually streamed.

    Clips API objects have a created_at timestamp which is when the user made the clip but this can be months or years off from when the content in a clip actually happened if a clip was made from a VOD which makes created_at useless for a lot of use cases.

    Even for clips from livestreams this is an issue as users can cut clips from a 2 minute (90 secs?) window so the actual content of two clips with the exact same created_at timestamps…

  12. The API https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#check-automod-status

    Only lets you check automod for the channel.

    But it'll only do it to the value that the channel is set to

    Please allow the developer to test a given phrase at a different automod level to that that the channel is set to.

    Say the channel is set to level 1, I may want to test a paticular phrase or message about to be sent to an overlay or other property at level 3 or 4 instead for additional security/moderation beyond the level that chat is set to

  13. Similar to

    But for the Get Channel information endpoint

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

  14. 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
    }]
    }

  15. Pagination on some Helix endpoints, such as Get Streams, is just bad, and can lead to endless looping. So here are some suggestions.

    The goal of any solution would be for any dev paging through any Helix endpoint to have a clear and reliable indication of "there are no more results, you can stop pagination". And if for whatever reason that can't be indicated, the endpoint should safely return an empty data array rather than looping the user back to the start.

    Currently, the final page of the Streams endpoint still contains a cursor (for use in before) so simply…

  20. Similar to https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213/suggestions/38203978

    But include the date/time of when the ban record is for.

    So for example

    {
    "user_id": "SomeID",
    "user_login": "SOMElogin",
    "user_name": "SOMEdisplay",
    "expires_at": "",
    "reason": "",
    "moderator_id": "15185913",
    "moderator_login": "barrycarlyon",
    "moderator_name": "BarryCarlyon"
    }
    

    I have no idea when this ban happened.

    UseCase: For considering unbans when reviewing data in an external tool, the date/time of the ban will be considered to determine if the user who is banned has "served" their time or not
