Can I obtain subscribers by only going to the URL?

I’m trying check my channel’s subscribers.

The documentation to do this is here:

For example, this is the URL.

I am using Python, and in order to do most API calls I append the string “?client_id=abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz” to the URL, and then go to this URL, convert the read result to dictoinary and get the value I’m interested in.

Subscriptions also require an oauth token to access. I have this (generated by the channel i’m developing this for). Is it possible to append this to the url similarly to how I have done for the client-id? e.g. “

Thank you for your time and help!

You need to pass these in the headers, im no python programmer but according to
Your code for the get should be similar too:

url = ''
headers = {'Accept': 'application/vnd.twitchtv.v5+json', 'Client-ID': 'uo6dggojyb8d6soh92zknwmi5ej1q2', 'Authorization': 'OAuth cfabdegwdoklmawdzdo98xt2fo512y'}
r = requests.get(url, headers=headers)

I recommend using headers, but yes you can use the “oauth_token” key to use a token just like the client ID.


/kraken/channels/:channel login/subscriptions
?api_version=3&client_id=:client ID&oauth_token=:OAuth token


/kraken/channels/:channel ID/subscriptions
?api_version=5&client_id=:client ID&oauth_token=:OAuth token

I haven’t tested much of the new API, it may or may not be available there. Again, best to the learn to use headers.
