  3. An update on Jan 31, 2019 gave channel moderators the ability to add comments to users within chat. There is currently no way to use the API to be able to set or retrieve comments for users in chat.

    This should be available to the broadcaster and all moderators within a channel.

    To add a mod comment to a user, the endpoint could take the following data as inputs:
    - User: {user's name}
    - Moderator: {mod's name}
    - Broadcaster: {broadcaster's name}
    - Comment: {comment to be applied}

    On success, this would return the following:
    - Success: {true}
    - date: {date}…

  4. 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,…

  5. Add an endpoint the returns a list of the latest cheers to a channel. The list should include: username, bits, message and date-time.

  6. For the purposes of GDPR it would be useful to have the following webhooks:

    • When a Streamer installs an extension
    • When a streamer activates an extension
    • When a streamer deactivates an extension
    • When a streamer uninstalls an extension.

    The most important one is the uninstall, it allows us the third party to be notified of an uninstalled.

    The Shopify platform has this with the rule that a third party should, automatically delete all Store (and that stores customer data) 30 days after that hook triggers.

    We need/should do the same, delete any broadcaster, or broadcaster viewer (and subscribers) data 30…

  7. Emotes are a commonly used feature of Channel Point Redemptions requiring messages. Unlike the EventSub Subscription Message events which provide emote ID and placement data, Channel Point Redemption events do not. I propose the following change to the Point Redemption notification payload:

    channel.channel_points_custom_reward_redemption.add and channel.channel_points_custom_reward_redemption.update:

    {
        "subscription": {
            ...
        },
        "event": {
            ...
            "user_input": {
                "text": "Channel Point Message! finite6ThrowBall",
                "emotes": [
                    {
                        "begin": 24,
                        "end": 40,
                        "id": "emotesv2_4133039724974aa59589549eae677d03"
                    }
                ]
            },
            ...
        }
    }
    

    This allows for a client to properly construct the channel point redemption input, with emote images, similar to the channel.subscription.message event.

  9. It shouldn't be required for manage roles such as mod/vip via the chat

    It shouldn't be required to manage editor/mod/vip via the roles manager

    it would be useful for automation/third party management to be able to manage roles via the API

    Currently not a top priority, but we are interested in your use cases for this functionality to be considered at a later time. Please include more information in the comments as to how and why this would be useful.

  10. Marketing firms looking to sponsor streamers or their managment need accurate statistics for a channel.

    They need more information than just scraping the public Twitch API.

    For example

    • the Twitch API will not distinguish between and embed viewer and a viewer in chat.
    • chat activity information
    • other metrics that a streamer has access to and theres no way to API style obtain more useful data

    Basically, there needs to be an API method to obtain more data about a channel but it has to be scoped naturally.

    There should be an API that allows authroised people to collect information about…

  12. Please provide a webhook so that authorised tools can collect Commercial status when an ad is run not via the Start Commercial API endpoint (ie Via chat or another authorised user)

    So tool A will know not to try and run ads because user Fred just did

    And Tool A doesn't want to run ads after the "retry_after" period as Fred ran the ads 20 minutes early. so we'd want to reset the start point to when Fred ran ads. For say when Tool A runs ads one per hour

    For example

  14. 4 chat commands that would be great to have as API endpoints:

    /monitor USERNAME - Start monitoring a user's messages.
    /unmonitor USERNAME - Stop monitoring a user's messages.
    /restrict USERNAME - Start restricting a user's messages
    /unrestrict USERNAME - Stop restricting a user's messages

  15. Right now there is no official way (there is an undocumented endpoint) to determine whether a stream is sub only or not. Subscriber only status prohibits a lot of people from interacting with the stream, so it'd make sense for applications to be aware of such a state.

  16. One of the annoyances of the current authorization system is that whenever the broadcaster change their password, they need to reauthorize all apps as well, so developers need to have a way of warning the user to reauthorize it, or they will lose access to its features.

    I understand this is a security feature, but it would be good if that could be handled separately, because a lot of times people just want to change password, and not revoke auth for third party apps

  18. A streamer can configure if he/she allows to send a raid to his/her channel or not. But this information can't get using twitch api endpoint. The only way is trying to send a raid, and check if any error is returned or not.

    Add this information directly in twitch API can helpful to select a streamer to send a raid.

  19. I think an EventSub subscription type that would be really useful is one that alerts when an advertisement begins from the user's scheduled Ad Manager. This would allow bots the ability to post a message to users about the ad and remind them about subscribing and such when the ad begins.

  20. With the new Raids API, it should mirror IRC where channel editors can trigger raid/unraid. Currently, this is not supported (need broadcaster user access token). Until this functionality is added, I will not be migrating to Helix Raids
