Follow Not Found

username, userId = user(oauth)
channelId = getChannelId(name)

URL = f"{userId}/follows/channels/{channelId}"
Headers = {"Accept": "application/vnd.twitchtv.v5+json", "Client-ID": clientId, "Authorization": "OAuth " + oauth}

r = requests.get(URL, headers=Headers)

data = r.json()

This code returns the error : {'error': 'Not Found', 'status': 404, 'message': 'Follow not found'}
Any solution? Using twitch api v5

@BarryCarlyon Any clue?

userId does not follow channelId

This is the correct response as userId does not follow channelId

it’s working as expected…

what way is it suppose to go?

i want to follow another account

I dont’ understand the question, you tested if userID follows channelID, and userID doesn’t.

IE the authentication user, say PrintHam, doesn’t follow Lirik on Twitch.

Kraken didn’t return a follow object

Checks if a specified user follows a specified channel. If the user is following the channel, a follow object is returned.

As PrintHam doesn’t follow Lirik.

Additionally if you were calling helix, Reference | Twitch Developers you’d get an empty data array which would show the same (no follow found between to two IDs)

Ohhhh it does that. I thought it would make a user follow another channel. Do you know how to do this?

Then you need to call the “Create Follows” End point, not the “Get Follow Status” endpoint

Kraken Reference | Twitch Developers
Helix Reference | Twitch Developers

Okay one second, I will try it and let you know what happens I read the documentation for this link. It says I need the parameters from_id to id. Where do I put it in the link?

Like this? URL = f"{userId}/to_id={channelId}" @BarryCarlyon

  1. There is no need to ping me in a reply, since the reply does that anyway.

As per the documentation

from_id and to_id are query string parameters

So its

or JSON as the example shows

curl -X POST '' \
-H 'Authorization: Bearer 2gbdx6oar67tqtcmt49t3wpcgycthx' \
-H 'Client-Id: wbmytr93xzw8zbg0p1izqyzzc5mbiz' \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data-raw '{"to_id": "41245072","from_id": "57059344"}'

This doesn’t exactly follow them :frowning:

Whats the error response?

from_id would be the user ID for PrintHam
to_id would be the user ID of the channel you want to follow (eg Lirik)

from_id would also need to match the ID of the user in user access token/bearer you provide

No errors, but it doesn’t follow the user

What is the error/body response when you make the API request?
