[Feature Request] Webhook for Revoked Connections

I would like to be able to react to a user disconnecting my application from their account without having to poll with a token to see if the token is still valid. My servers don’t need the extra load. Your servers don’t need the extra load. I don’t want to keep hundreds of thousands of live tokens around for such a spurious reason. There’s a better way.

To that end, I request the implementation of a revocation webhook, similar to what GitHub does, Facebook does, Slack does, etc.

Example of what I’d like:

curl -H 'Client-ID: some_app' \
-H 'Authorization: Bearer some_app_token' \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-X POST -d '{"hub.mode":"subscribe",
"hub.secret":"kappa doesn't make you funny"}' \

Where the payload would be an array of user objects (being an array to match other webhooks):

    "data": [{
        "id": "1234",
        "login": "example",
        "display_name": "Example",

An array of just IDs would be fine too, as long as we have a strong way of identifying the user that disconnected from our applications.

Aside: It’d be really nice if we could set up permanent webhooks for topics like this using the administration panel rather than having to submit temporary ones via the API.


I’d actually rather see a generic “automagic” webhook that just happens with no subscription needed… The Idea being that it would just be another value we’d configure on our application in the dev portal. When a revocation occurs, hit the revocation url we configure passing the user object(s) that have been revoked so that we can purge them from our applications.


I’d rather see that too. I was trying to make a suggestion in line with the rest of Twitch’s webhooks to maybe make it more likely to be implemented, but I strongly prefer having set permanent webhooks for something like that.

GitHub takes that approach. You automatically get them and can’t opt out.
