Suggestion: user_login field on streams (helix)


I was tinkering around with the new helix twitch api lately, and was mainly interested in the “get streams” request

It already has a request field for user_login, but no response field. The username is already found in the thumbnail_url field, but I do not want to rely on that, as it could break a/my system if the url format/domain CDN is ever changed, which isnt impossible.
So would it be possible to add a “user_login” response field to this request type? It does not sound like something that should take a lot of resources or time to implement, as the data is already there, but I think it would be a valuable addition to the request.

I hope this is the correct place to request such a thing, in the roadmap it linked to here, so…
Thank you for your time taken to read this awfully worded thread!

This was covered in


I’m sure it’s on a Todo if planned to be added


Didnt see those, but I’m glad it’s already a thing that was brought to light then :slight_smile:Thank you!
