Missing clips:edit scope

Hi all,

When trying to create a new clip, I get this error:

  error: 'Unauthorized',
  status: 401,
  message: 'Missing clips:edit scope'

Prior to making the post call to https://api.twitch.tv/helix/clips, I obtained an access_token with the required scope clips:edit (I checked it in the token response, where the scope array contained it).

I’m using axios to make requests. Here’s the code I’m using, in case it’s useful:

// client is an axios instance
.then(response => {
  console.log(response.data.access_token, response.data.scope) // Token and scopes seem correct
  client.defaults.headers.common['Authorization'] = `Bearer ${response.data.access_token}` // Set Auth header for subsequent requests
  client.post('https://api.twitch.tv/helix/clips', {
    broadcaster_id: 93031467
  }).then(response => {
  }).catch(err => {
    console.log(err) // Here I get the missing scope error


EDIT: Okay, I think this response works for me. Now I only have to figure out how to get a client access token. :laughing:

EDIT2: Yes, that was the problem, I followed these steps and got it to work. I hope this is useful for someone as clueless as me :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
