  1. 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…

  2. Allow developers to mock responses from all common integration points- subs, bits, follows, streams, etc, and allow users to mock users as well.

    This is useful for automated testing as well as building extensions.

  4. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. Old Twitch v5 API has an endpoint called "Get Top Clips" (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/clips#get-top-clips)

    I think the new API should also include this endpoint because the current way of getting the top clips is not exactly the most user friendly one. Currently if you want to get top clips, you need to get all clips using the "Get Clips" endpoint and then sort them out manually on our side. This works if you know exactly what you want. For example if you want top clips for a game you can use the game parameter.

    Unfortunately this isn't the most optimal…

  8. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. With the new helix API there is no possibility to retrieve user logo and banner information.
    In V5 API this information could be retrieved with this call:

    GET https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/channels/<channel ID>

    Will it also be implemented in helix?

  12. for /helix/streams can we add:
    profileimageurl from /helix/users
    and the game name (and potentially boxarturl) from /helix/games

    This is very basic info related to the stream and would be really nice to have available in a single call rather than 3 separate calls. This is especially important with bots that are trying to get the status of many streams in a short period quickly racking up api calls

  13. 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

  14. On helix we can only get people that are subscribed to a broadcaster, we can't get the broadcasters a user is subscribed to.

    So basically we've got V5 channels/<channel ID>/subscriptions.
    We are missing V5 <user ID>/subscriptions/<channel ID>.

  15. When user IDs in the provided data payload do not exists, the endpoint returns a 500 error. Ideally this should return a more detailed error code with an error message related to user IDs.

  16. There are two scenarios when using this API which return a 500 from the server, but which should return either a 401 or 400 and a meaningful error code to help point out the issue:

    1. If you have set your productSKU's to 'live', but you're testing in 'Hosted testing', you receive this error. A response telling you that you cannot test SKUs in live mode when in hosted testing would be great.

    2. If your extension is live and you are trying to use bits on a channel which doesnt support it, you will receive a 500 from the server. I…

  19. If a user is banned from chat due to email or phone "cross ban" as per:

    Curbing Ban Evasion
    
    We know there are many reasons someone may need to manage more than one account, so you can verify up to five accounts per phone number. That said, to help prevent ban evasion, if one phone-verified account is suspended site-wide, all accounts tied to that number will also be suspended site-wide. Users won’t be able to verify additional accounts using a phone number that is already tied to an actively suspended account. 
    
    At the channel-level, if one phone-verified or email-verified account

  20. The new endpoint only allows the broadcaster to run commercials: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#start-commercial

    The old endpoint also allowed users with the editor role to run commercials: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/channels#start-channel-commercial

    I believe it is of value to allow access to editors as they used to. Editors should be trusted enough to choose their own tools to support the broadcaster, as has already been the case.

    Plus, if an editor's token can be used the editor's name will appear in the Activity Log on the Dashboard, rather than the broadcaster's name (assuming some sort of webpanel or bot has to be used, that the broadcaster has…
