Search not finding anything in panels

Hey. I am trying to search Twitch profiles for a certain keywords but I am not getting any results.

For Example. Lets search for “tyler1business” that can be found by looking at the description Tyler1 has on his channel: https://www.twitch.tv/loltyler1
I use the query “https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/search/channels?query=tyler1business” and send it with my Client-ID.

This query returns 0 results. But I can clearly see my query string on the profile description. I am doing something wrong when searching?

You can’t search for what’s in someones panels.

tyler1business is not part of loltyler1's channel name, stream title, or game being streamed, so you get 0 results.

Ahh alright, so that is not a supported feature at all for Twitch API?

Correct, there are no API endpoints that deal with panels on a channel.
