  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. I have embedded my Twitch channel on my website as a non-interactive iframe in my side panel.

    Example:
    https://imgur.com/a/v1wc8ri

    However, there is so much text there which clutters the UI.

    By having my stream title there from when I was online does not add any value. It certainly does not promote my channel.

    I would much more prefer if I could just have the bare minimum there and I can show my own offline-image.

    Example:
    https://imgur.com/a/v1wc8ri

    It would be nice if we had a new query parameter option for embedding channels, which could remove any promotion texts or videos /…

  7. Please provide an API and/or webhook/event sub

    That provides information about if a VOD/clip/other content is muted

    We will need the start/end time slots for each muting on the content

  8. With the helix oAuth requirements

    It is often a problem for the less experienced developer to get started, as they don't understand certain rules and limitations around the API.

    The less experienced developer may then choose to generate and leak their client secret, or app access tokens on their "front end only" websites in error.

    So I propose that if the token is identified as App Access/Client Credentials, Twitch adds "CORS Headers" to block the request

    Consider also CORS headers to the token fetching endpoints for App Access generation as well?

  10. Currently the only way to fetch this information is via a semi-undocumented endpoint. Given Twitch's past record on these endpoints, I don't want to rely on them as by my experience they have a tendency to suddenly disappear. For this reason, I'm asking for this information to be added to the Helix API.

  11. Please extend the error message of the start commercial API to be more useful

    Current response is

    { error: 'Bad Request',
    status: 400,
    message: 'channel for id "SOMEID" has recently ran a commercial' }

    It should return the retry_after remaining value

  12. 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

  13. Please provide a webhook so that authorised tools can collect Commercial status when an ad is run not via the Start Commercial API endpoint (ie Via chat or another authorised user)

    So tool A will know not to try and run ads because user Fred just did

    And Tool A doesn't want to run ads after the "retry_after" period as Fred ran the ads 20 minutes early. so we'd want to reset the start point to when Fred ran ads. For say when Tool A runs ads one per hour

    For example

  14. 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…

  15. Now it is not possible to get the number of streams in a certain section without sending a large number of requests to the API.

  16. 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.

  18. 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

  19. The old semi-unofficial API endpoint to allow/deny messages held by AutoMod used to cause an event in the PubSub "chat moderator actions" topic, which made sense because other moderators should be informed of this mod action. I think at some point it also happened when allowing/denying through the website.

    Now allowing/denying through the website and the new endpoint (I think) does not provide this information to other mods. The only thing that is sometimes triggered is a channel terms action event, which is good, but it doesn't provide a direct connection to which message was affected (and it doesn't seem…

  20. It would be useful to be able to automate uploading a new channel offline screen.

    (And banner too)

    We may do game themed offline screens and want to automate doing that.
    And/or manage it on behalf of the streamer, since the only way to currently update offline screens is if you are the broadcaster.
