Create Clip API missing scope

Ok, so I created a new app in Dev Dashboard, got a Client-ID and used it and a Client Secret to get

App Access Token


Now I try to use this fresh access token with Create Clip API
My request looks like this:

Why does it say that clips:edit is missing? Am I doing something wrong? All I want is to create a clip of someone’s live stream.

You’re using the wrong type of token, you need to use a user access token, not an app access token.

You’re trying to access an endpoint that requires user authentication.

Thanks for the reply, so does it make sense for me to create a separate account specifically for creating clips?

That’s entirely up to you. You need a user to go through the authentication process so that when using the create clips endpoint it will create the clips as if they were made by that user. So creating a new account or using your own Twitch account is for you to decide based on what you’re hoping to achieve.
