  1. 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…

  2. Provide an endpoint where the authenticated user can retrieve all channels where they are granted the VIP role.

    Since Eventsub doesn't return userstate responses like IRC does, we aren't informed of vip status on channel.chat.message subscribe, message events, or helix send responses. We can manually check VIP status by referencing if we have the VIP badge after sending a message; however it would be nice to fetch all VIP channels from a helix endpoint, much like '/moderation/channels'.

    Use case for this would be chatbots which scale permissions based on VIP/mod status.

  3. This already exists with the videos endpoint. Clips already have a created_at value so sorting by it should be easy to implement. You could actually reduce API calls if you allowed sorting by date.

  4. With more Information on the "Shared Bans" feature now being available, it would be nice to have information about them available to third Parties, specifically in 2 Locations:

    1. When a user from a shared List joins and is marked as restricted or flagged, this should be returned on IRC - it probably already is, but the relevant tags should be documented and usable for third parties providing chat integrations / moderator tooling
    2. An API endpoint to GET which streamers a mutual sharing has been made with or a way to query a user's "flagging" status in a channel to allow…

  5. It would be very nice to have additional information on the subscription of a specific user, for example date of the subscription, how many consecutive months the user have been subscribed and the total months that the user was subscribed.
    This could be easily added in the "Get Broadcaster Subscriptions" response so that for a specific broadcaster you can have the list of subscribers and for each one you can select the ones with streaks or total months to perform special actions with them

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

    We will be updating the documentation to make it clearer that the image in the payload will always be a static image. We are also planning to document the URL schema for the CDN to retrieve the animated version.

  8. 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.<moderator_id>.<channel_id> 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. To make it easier to streamers to add a bot to their channel.

    Some bots may be asking for the channel:manage:moderators scope.
    But this means the bot can add/remove any moderator.

    It would seem practical to create and support a scope or proceedure that restricts the scope to a single user.

    So channel:manage:moderators:15185913 when using this with asking user 26610234 would give me the ability to mod/unmod only that one userID

  15. In order to give the end user more control, applications may be developed to have dynamic scopes, which currently is on the third-party developer's side to manage, such as providing a list of checkboxes to determine which permissions to grant.
    I suggest adding a parameter to <id.twitch.tv/oauth2/authorize> to turn the listed permissions into checkboxes, and only the checked permissions returned in the scope list that accompanies the resulting token. This will make the user's interaction with the permissions feel more seamless, as well as prevent "backouts" when the user is presented with a list of access permissions they can't "un-choose".

  16. According to the recently updated documentation (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference/#modify-channel-information ):

    To remove all tags from the channel, set tags to an empty array.

    However that does not work at all, as the API returns:

    {"error":"Bad Request","status":400,"message":"The request must update at least one channel property field."}

    When receiving the following payload:

    {"tags": []}

    If you send the following the title gets updated and the tags remain untouched:

    {"title": "Test ing the API", "tags": []}

  17. Twitch supports two categories of notifications for users on their site: My Channel and My Twitch. My Channel provides updates related to broadcasts, such as subscriptions or donations. My Twitch provides updates mainly about game drops and other loot related activities.

    I propose extending the My Twitch notifications so developers can send custom notifications to users directly on the Twitch platform. These notifications would act similar to drop notifications and would appear in the My Twitch feed. Users would have to agree to receiving notifications via oAuth when signing in or connecting their Twitch account to another application, similar to…

  18. "Who I'm watching" endpoint

    Add an Helix API endpoint to get "Who I'm watching" if the right scopes where provided

    With this we could be able to import this data for other apps, like "Discord events to invite other users to watch the same stream"

  20. So a developer can ask the api for just bits reward tier emotes or the "regular" sub emotes

    This applies to both
