  1. Request

    Organize channel.subscription topics to allow for alert like notifications to properly be provided. What displays in chat should be able to be mimicked via EventSub topics without having active tracking or additional api calls; Provide missing data where needed; Create new topics to fill in the gaps.


    Current Scenarios

    Brand New Subscriber: If a user subscribes for the first time in the channel, we get an alert as soon as they sub. This is incidental that it works properly for stream based alerts, as we are actually receiving the payment transaction rather than the in chat event.

  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…

  3. If you have a created a raid.

    You should be able to use the API to trigger "raid now"

    Which is a button on the front end UI which allows the streamer to skip the 90 second.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. Similar to the Bits Leaderboard, please add a gifted subs leaderboard API, so we can see everyone who has gifted a sub in the channel.

  7. 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

    Changing status to long-term. To preserve ecressey's previous comment, "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."

  8. Add support to access/query and maybe even create/edit/delete community challenges.

    For example to unlock a big "something" in a game, when the community goal has been reached.

  10. The idea is simple: Add the same phone & email verification options to the ability to actually follow a channel, and thus also giving account age requirements to be able to follow a channel. This will allow small streamers being targeted by hate raid Bot attacks to simply prevent the bot attacks easily, instead of being driven off the platform.

  11. 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

  13. Hey, not sure if this has been posted as a uservoice already, I took a quick glance using the above title as a query and couldnt find anything about it.

    It would be nice with the new Custom Tags feature that we would be able to get a list of streams with x tag(s) for 3rd party use. Id envision this to either be its own endpoint, or potentially added to the query property of the "Get Streams" endpoint, like Kraken used to do with title searching (Which also would be nice to have back in Helix)

  14. Authorized people whom are not the Broadcaster should be able to obtain Emote Slot information and upload emotes to those slots.

    • get available slots
    • get what is in those slots
    • upload Art to those slots and specify names

  15. Make more developer tools for working with embedded clips.
    At least, it can be the same tools as for the VODs player (playback api, events etc). Or you can add more features specifically for clips, for example, when you put an array of clips into player it displays as a collection or playlist.

  16. Add a flag, which is true, when a subscription is made through Prime Gaming. Distinguishing between a regular sub and a Prime sub allows us to react differently on these cases, like also being able to promote the free Prime Gaming sub.

  17. Currently twitch embed does not support vod chat and neither does the helix api.

    Twitch only allows vod chat to be seen directly on the website.

    This data could be used in a great number of ways by third-parties particularly video editors.

    Please add a way to retrieve chat for vods

    No? ok. Sadge

  18. 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. Extend the Videos API via a "metadata" endpoint, that provides additional data about the video.

    Including but not limited to

    • Category changes during the video
    • Offsets are relative to the source video that the video is from. So for a highlight it would report the video it was cut from and include where in the origin file the highlight is cut from.

    For Example: https://api.twitch.tv/helix/videos/metadata?id=1234
    Metadata would support up to 100 (or 50) id's at once like Get Videos

    Returns examples

    A video of type archive
    {
    "data": [
    {
    "id": "1234",
    "duration": 18000,
    "chapters": [
    {
    "offset": 0,
    "game…
