  1. Subscribe topic only broadcasts "new subscriptions"

    So when a subscription "expires" we don't get a "payment notification" for a Resub

    This is NOT a eventsub for the "chat notification" see https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/42008104-please-provide-an-event-sub-that-emits-sub-notifi for that

    I’m not clear on the use case for this. It seems like with a resub chat message notification and subscribe/unsubscribe events you should have the data you need.

  2. The new helix endpoint to modify channel information ( https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#modify-channel-information ) doesn't work with a user token from a user that has been added as an editor to the channel. This basicially shuts out any clientside tool used by editors where it's impractical for the broadcaster to directly authorize access. Editors should be trusted enough to be able to choose their own tools.

    Allowing access to editors would especially make sense if this is intended as a replacement for the v5 endpoint ( https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/channels#update-channel ), which does allow editors to update the stream title and game. It would also work…

  5. Given the fact that Twitch had to take down the follow/unfollow api's due to bot programs that are out there - my suggestion would be to have an approved set of developers that propose and showcase their applications.

    This way Twitch could bring back the follow/unfollow API and any service or developer that was in violation of Twitch's TOS regarding the API could be warned and ultimately have their access and credentials removed.

    Twitch Developers could review the logs of which applications were connected with BOT services and immediately shut those down rather then removing the api in its entirety…

  6. In the channel settings, you may specify a "profile accent color" to represent your brand.
    Right now, this isn't exposed in the API at all.

  8. Allowing developers to roll back a released version to another (approved) version would allow developers to quickly address breaking issues without going through a review process.

  9. Follow up to https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/39228787-extend-the-clips-api-to-include-recreation-from-so

    to request the offset of a clip being added to the API

    Use cases include

    • Deduplication of Clips submitted to a clips submission thing
    • Recreate the clip from a copy of the vod.
    • Using the offset to easily spot "hype" points of a stream for channel editors making highlights to focus on that point aka "heatmaps of popular stream time points"
    • From CSharpFritz: Show clips in the order that they naturally occurred, and not the time that they were created

  10. The chat_moderator_actions topic in the PubSub documentation appears to only work with a broadcaster OAuth token. This prevents third-party modding tools that don't use some kind of centralized system from accessing information that is vital for effective modding (such as which mod performed an action, actions that aren't otherwise visible like unbans and viewing and approving messages filtered by AutoMod).

    With a centralized system the broadcaster could provide a token somehow that the moderators don't need to have access to directly, however with purely clientside tools this is not feasible. I'm also not sure why moderators should not have access…

  11. When a "gift bomb"

    there is no way to gather all the gifts into one event.
    Each gift in a bomb should have a ID to link it to the header event.

    IRC sends a header saying "x is giving out y subs to the community"
    But the USERNOTICE events, don't say they belong to that event.

    Please provide a way to group the events, something as simple as a "parentid" in the child gifts subs, that'll link to a "childid" in the header event.

    This header and extra ID's need to be provided on the PubSub event…

  12. Trigger: Triggers whenever a broadcaster hosts on a broadcaster's channel.

    Motivation: To my knowledge it is not possible to query hosts in real time. In our Twitch Alerts Extension it is currently not possible to show when a streamer is hosted by another streamer.

  17. Please provide an API to allow developers to create update and fetch the new "profile block" at the top of panels.

    IE the new Social links section and the new bio/description block

  18. We third party dev's often build tools that assist with moderation actions/services for broadcasters.

    We tell Moderators to enable 2FA, but we have no way to check it.

    It would be useful to block Logins to our tool if 2FA is not enabled. But 2FA data is not surfaced in the API and there's no way to require a User to be 2FA during the login/oAuth loop.

    I'd like to see the users endpoint(s) provide 2FA status.
    I expect this to be behind the user read or openID scopes.

    openID allows email verified. Why not 2fa status (for example)

    Worth…

  19. If would be very useful for chat clients or chat overlays to be able to show live updates on these features. Currently they are only available for the broadcaster (redemptions) or not at all through websockets (polls/predictions).

    Ideally this would be available for all users to receive, just like chat is (which allows more simple integration into all kinds of tools), but even just mods using third-party moderation tools would already benefit greatly from this.

    I included all three of those features, since they all seem to follow the same idea of only allowing the broadcaster access to that information…

  20. The v5 endpoint contains the follower's account creation date, the new endpoint (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users-follows) does not.

    Knowing when a follower created their account is very useful to moderators monitoring recent follows to keep an eye on potentially problematic users (new account could mean a previously banned user returning) or to detect mass follows from bots (which often have a similar account creation date). Monitoring recent follows is especially useful in follow-only chat mode.

    While it is possible to get the account creation date from the "Get Users" endpoint (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users) and then merge it with the follower data,…
