Previously my bot was just using user_read. I have changed my call to twitch.tv to include channel_check_subscriptions, and channel_editor. When my users try to log in they are seeing the new permissions, but according to https://api.twitch.tv/kraken my only scope is user_read. I also can’t pull back the subscriber list (err 401).
What am I missing? I deleted all my previous twitch cookies and tried, and still don’t have the new scope.
I believe you need the channel_subscriptions scope to get the list.
channel_check_subscription Read whether a user is subscribed to your channel.
channel_subscriptions Read all subscribers to your channel.
Are you using the new OAuth token that is generated or trying to use the old one? (just wondering)
That is a good question I am probably using the old one I had captured. Do I need to generate a new one, or can I just capture the one in the call back?
You generate a new oAuth each time.
Yeah I went back and looked, the access token. I had one of my users who has a sub button reauth and get me the token. I placed it in my header (with the client ID and accept) and went to
now I am getting 404 channel does not exist.
If I use their name instead of their ID I get
403 “The current authorization is not valid for this context”
Thanks, I thought I could just use the accept header to specify v5, didn’t think I had to put it in the url
the accept header isn’t working for me for some reason.
Header name: Accept
Header value: application/vnd.twitchtv.v5+json
(while using the modify headers firefox extension).
Maybe something will play nice when I put it in code and stop trying to get at it this way.
Thanks for the help.
