  1. There should be a Live Activated Channels with Extensions webhook to get updates once a channel w/ the Extension goes live- similar to the Stream Changed webhook, this would reduce the amount of polling needed.

  2. It seems that it’s currently impossible to determine who is streaming to a shared channel using the Authorized Broadcaster feature. I tested on my own channels and it appears as if the https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/channels/<mysharedchannel> endpoint does not include any information on the authorized broadcaster streaming to that channel.

    Is this something in the works or planned? It would be very helpful for building extensions and bot commands for shared channels.

    Note: when adding an email address to the authorized broadcaster list, it does check that the email is associated with a valid Twitch account, so this information should be available…

  3. Please extend

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

    To provide as much information as the new PubSub Topic for automod-queue.&lt;moderator_id&gt;.&lt;channel_id&gt; does

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/pubsub#topics

    Currently the API jsut does pass/fail
    But PubSub provides content/text/frames/reasoning.

    This endpoint may be used by third party tools such as tip alerts or extensions to determine if a message passes review or not.

    And if it is to be held and presented in a dashboard for moderation staff to review would be useful to include the additional information/reasoning for the block.

  4. Similar to - https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/41272606-extend-start-commercial-error-message-to-return-r

    Please provide an endpoint that returns the following information


    • adverts last run

    • adverts can run next (retry_after)

    • adverts max duration

    SImilar to https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/41272606-extend-start-commercial-error-message-to-return-r

    It would be useful to provide better tooling for streamers whom have a contract requiring ads to be run.

  5. We're currently unable to CRUD User Notes from the Moderators Update last year. We also cannot read/issue a timeout or issue a ban via API.

  6. This guide descibes how Partners can assign someone a lifetime sub that doesn't count to rev of points

    https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/lifetime-subscriber-guide-for-partners

    The API doesn't present any information as to who is a lifetime sub or not.
    So we cannot guestimate sub points (or revenue if we are building revenue reporting tools for streamers we work with) from the API as we don't know who is a lifetime sub or not.

    Please provide an API endpoint that lists these subs, which would be "cheaper" than a boolean flag added to the subscribers endpoint

  8. CRUD for bet as streamer
    CRUD for bet as viewer

    As streamer:


    • Being able to start/cancel a bet from endpoint

    • Being able to state who won from endpoint

    • Maybe get stats about the bet (invested coins, status, nb of participant, ...) (as Events or/and as HTTP API)

    As viewer:
    - Receive an Event when there is a new bet
    - Get bet info using endpoint (remaining time, title, bet A, bet B, nb of people who bet)
    - Place a bet using endpoint
    - Event win or lose

  9. Currently the API doesn't support marking a reward out of stock manually. This may be beneficial for rewards that take some time to process where specifying a hard cooldown wouldn't be appropriate.

    In addition, support for a custom "out of stock" message may benefit some developers. Using sound alerts as an example, if a streamer is in "focus mode" and needs to concentrate on what they are doing, rather than say the default "out of stock" it could say "StreamerX is focusing right now".

  10. 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.

  11. Add the ability to trigger a reward redemption from the API - similar/same to what happens when clicking the reward in the chat dialog.

    For example an extension has added a custom reward XYZ and to trigger a certain action in or for the extension this reward needs to be used.

    So instead of the extension telling the viewer "please redeem reward XYZ to do this or that" and then waiting for the redemption, immediately trigger the redemtion via the API - saving the viewer the need to browse and look for the redemtion in question.

    Result of this API…

  13. Submitting this on behalf of Jeff Fritz, which he mentioned while talking about a Channel Points streaming opportunity. I was talking about building an example that uses webhooks to flag when a specific category is selected for a stream so a developer knows when to enable or disable a channel points reward. His question was why Twitch doesn't handle that automatically.

    If there was an optional category property that could be set when creating the custom reward, Twitch could potentially handle enabling/disabling a reward more reliably if the context for switching is a category update, which would probably be the…

  15. channel information endpoint provides "gameid", "gamename" and "title" for live streams, but it doesn't return the stream uptime as displayed below a live stream; would be useful to acquire this via API.

  16. Specifically talking about:
    - Get Channel Information: helix/channels
    - Search Channel: helix/search/channels
    - Get Users: helix/users

    Those endpoints all return data concerning a specific channel, but all of the JSON responses are different and no single endpoint contains all the data you need.

    Say I have a user id and want to get the profile picture of that channel, whether it is live and the title of the broadcast.

    For the profile picture I have to hit the 'Get Users' endpoint.
    For the 'isLive' info I need to hit the 'Search Channels' endpoint, and then find the correct user from…

  18. Currently you can subscribe to a webhook to receive a handful of types of events. The only way to see when a stream goes live is to subscribe to a topic for that particular user. It would be incredibly useful to specify a category and receive a webhook whenever a stream goes live in that category.

  19. It has become difficult to obtain whats on the frontpage by region.

    Please provide an API to collect/obtain this data, it's useful for moderation to understand if/why we get a influx of viewers/chatters and can allocate additional bot rules/filters and/or moderation staff
