  1. Honestly this whole documentation is a bit sloppy. There should be clearer examples of using the APIs as I had to go Googling how the authentication actually works as the headers seem to be different than this suggests.

  3. You provide information on how to remove a token, how to refresh a token, and how to define scopes for tokens, but you don't actually have any information on how to request a token, nor any sample code on that or applying token scopes. Given that this step is fundamental to any interaction with the Twitch API, this seems like a fairly major omission.

  4. Topic.

    Cannot control highlight message/unlock emote rewards to enable/disable/change price or even list them etc via this API

    Example usages

    We might turn off emote "buying" on a Thursday as we are about to load a WHOLE new Set in for a big game on Monday. Is one thought.

    But I can't automate them.

    Also any number of tasks the streamer would like us (moderators/staff of the channel) to help manage but we can't if those rewards are API locked (and UI locked) out from "channel staff" being able to help manage

    Additionally, I'll get asked by the streamer I…

  5. When you have an application that uses channel points quite a lot and also reacts to them and does things, the chat is spammed with the redemption notifications which can negatively affect the chat experience.

    I suggest adding a flag to custom redemptions that prevents the chat notification from being sent.

  6. The page at

    https://dashboard.twitch.tv/u/barrycarlyon/community/channel-points/rewards

    Will list all rewards.

    But it's not super obvious which rewards "I made" or which rewards "an API call" made.

    So in theory a streamer not paying attention could delete an integration created reward.

    I'm not saying "remove" the delete button, just add additional wording

  7. 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.

  8. The webhook/response for subscriptions returns a payload as

    (webhook example)

    {
    "data": [
    {
    "eventdata": {
    "broadcaster
    id": "casterID",
    "broadcastername": "aCaster",
    "gifter
    id": "",
    "giftername": "",
    "is
    gift": false,
    "planname": "Some Subscription ($4.99)",
    "tier": "1000",
    "user
    id": "someID",
    "username": "someName"
    },
    "event
    timestamp": "2020-10-16T17:33:46Z",
    "event_type": "subscriptions.subscribe",
    "id": "1iyAnn4NpVMZ9jYv0HDOQP4SfpS",
    "version": "1.0"
    }
    ]
    }

    But it doesn't include information about if it was a 1/3/6/12 whatever subscription or not.

    Please extend the payload (for both webhooks and the API) to contain this information about if it's a multimonth purchase

  9. Many times, "viewer_count" response field doesn't change during several minutes (due to caching?). However, when you're watching a stream you can see how this data is refreshed each 20-25 seconds.

    Benefit: Increase the precision of apps that use this field

  10. Similar to adding https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/39622321-rerun-api

    Currently Video Upload is still on v5 and has not been migrated yet to helix. Please migrate Video Uploading and collection management API's

  11. The cheers topic of PubSub doesn't give emote placement like the Subscribers topic does.

    Please extend cheers topic to include the Emote placement like Subscriptions does

    For example

          "sub_message": {
            "message": "A Twitch baby is born! KappaHD",
            "emotes": [
              {
                "start": 23,
                "end": 7,
                "id": 2867
              }
            ]
          }
    

    Should be included with Cheers on PubSub

  12. The twitch apps games screen is pretty limited. Many have over 100 games on there by now. So I would like to be able to build my own web app and let users log in via twitch and browse their claimed games collection where I can provide filters and search for games using whatever data is available about the games. To do this there must of course be an API where I can retrieve the game list and meta data about them.

  13. There's currently no way to unfollow a game from the API, in any of the existing APIs (helix, v5, v3). You can follow a game in v5, but not unfollow. Helix has nothing related to games/category. The website itself uses GQL.

  14. Currently, supporting small streamers is costly, requiring pagination through large streamers. Grant Streams api functionality already present in internal gql api:

    options: {..., sort: VIEWER_COUNT_ASC,…}

  17. The Get Clips API should include information of all deleted clips matching the current clips request too when used with a proposed deleted=true parameter. Limited to only the broadcaster themselves and maybe behind some appropriate scope too.

    Goal: detecting malicious, weird and creepy clipping behavior from people making clips, downloading them, and instantly deleting them which is a very common pattern that's currently almost impossible to detect for streamers.

    Sometimes streamers will accidentally show something they didn't mean to for a second, or say something that can be taken out of context, and some people are just weird and clip…

  18. On the new Helix endpoint, https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference/#get-extension-transactions and therefor https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/webhooks-reference/#topic-extension-transaction-created the signed receipt that comes with onTransactionComplete from the JS Helper is missing. In order to audit and avoid man in the middle attacks, a signed JWT that can only be verified with the client secret should be sent on all endpoints sending monetary transaction data.
