I have my client ID. but How do I get the access token ? I remember it was a cURL command…
The Authentication docs have all the info you need on the various auth flows: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/authentication
Which auth flow you need depends entire on your use case.
I only need for helix/streams. I dont find that there
Then you can just use an App Access Token, which is generated through the client credentials flow https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/authentication/getting-tokens-oauth#oauth-client-credentials-flow
I get 404 with this URL:
As documented you need to make a POST request, you did a GET request
1) On your server, get an app access token by making this request: POST https://id.twitch.tv/oauth2/token ?client_id=<your client ID> &client_secret=<your client secret> &grant_type=client_credentials &scope=<space-separated list of scopes>
thanks it worked. I Get:
is this in seconds ? only 2 month ?
yes in seconds.
And yes around 60 days
You’ll then need to get a new token in the same way you got this first one
