Is team channel list loading depreciated?


#1

I have a plugin that loads the list of channels from a few different Twitch teams from putting /live_channels.json on the end of the team API URL. This seems to be 404’ing now (https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/teams/fgcpros/list_channels.json was the particular URL in question), as well as with the old format (http://api.twitch.tv/api/team/fgcpros/list_channels.json). Has this functionality been removed/depreciated? I have temporarily removed it from my plugin for now.


#2

That API has been deprecated for a few years now so it’s possible Twitch finally removed it.


#3

Yep, we removed it. As a reminder, any api endpoint that doesn’t begin with https://api.twitch.tv/kraken is unsupported and can be removed at any time with no warning.


#4

Can we expect the Kraken API to get an update to at the very least support the all_channels endpoint for teams?

Those endpoints were, as far as I know, the only way to properly retrieve a list of channels in a team.


#5

Thanks for the response. My other functions are all under the new api endpoint and functional. :slight_smile:


#6

Would be nice to see this endpoint available in Kraken asap…

Any info about this ?


#7

Will that endpoint be available in Kraken anytime soon? I created a Twitch Team so I could pull the live users without having to loop through my whole DB.


#8

That seems a lot worse than using the Twitch streams endpoint and requesting multiple channels. Compile a list of 100 channels and fetch them all with the channel query string parameter on /streams.


#9

I use the follow end point. One of my bots follows only the people I need to get live status of.
