No client id specified / authentication failed (Set Extension Required Configuration)

Hey everyone!

I’m trying to add required config to my extension.

I have the Authentication header sorted with no problems however i keep getting a error 400 No client ID specified when i do a call to:

$url = “

Below is a small section of the code used to make the request.

$headers = array(
‘Authorization’ => 'Bearer '.$extension->getAuthentication(),
‘Client-ID’ => TwitchExtension::$API_CLIENT,
‘Content-Type’ => ‘application/json’,

$resp = self::curlIt($headers, $post, $url)

The response i get back from Twitch:

{“error”:“Bad Request”,“status”:400,“message”:“No client id specified”}

If anyone has some ideas it will be greatly appreciated!


Ok, so fixed the issue with client id… this was fixed by adding &client_id as query parameter.

Next Problem… Seems my earlier luck with the JWT authentication was a failure.

My new error response:
{“error”:“Unauthorized”,“status”:401,“message”:“authentication failed”}

Language: PHP
Engine: Firebase JWT (

PHP Code
Below is the JWT code used to generate a signature…
public function auth($userId) {
$payload = array(
“exp” => (int) time() + 60,
“user_id” => (string) ‘’.$userId.’’,
“role” => “external”,
return JWT::encode($payload, SystemConfig::$API_SECRET, ‘HS256’);

When you specify a Auth it overrides clientID as under Kraken, the oauth key is used to look up the clientID for it.

However your PHP Code is wrong.

For cURL headers should be:

$headers = array(
'Authorization: Bearer '.$extension->getAuthentication(),
'Content-Type: application/json'

So the headers you are passing are completely wrong. (Note I omitted Client-ID here, but personally I leave it in all the time)

No need for the CLientID in the URL/query string, just fix your header sending

Revise: Make sure you have a

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PUT, true);

In there somewhere
