Twitch message logs


#1

Right know mods can see the users logs after the user sends a message on the chat however sometimes a banned user wants us the review why they are banned. And we can not see those logs without first unbanning the user wanting it to send a message and then see the logs. Is there a plan to add log viewer to chat or the channel moderation setting. I looked around on the dev logs and i see that it is fetched from the graphql enpoint. Am i as a developer allowed to use that enpoint only for fetching user logs?

Use the chat command

/user username

or for your “click to view” needs

GraphQL is NOT intended for third party use

Only end points documented on https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/ are for third parties to use.

Anything else make break or change at any time, and GraphQL shouldn’t be used, since you can’t obtain a valid Token to use with it

Thank you so much

Does twitch explicitly prohibits the use of graphql api. I would like to toy around with it. Or may it result on bans or something like that.


#5

It may result in bans/blocking from the API

Most of GraphQL requires a first party token/clientID which under normal operation you cannot obtain.

So basically yes.

Further more you may be in violation of the Dev TOS as you are reverse engineering the Twitch Website.
