Will the API be updated to display the affiliate status of an account?

Currently it’s possible to see if an account is partnered or not via the “partner”:true field in the channels api endpoints. https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/channels/#get-channel-by-id
Will there be a new field added to display the affiliate status in the channel object?

This is already available on api.twitch.tv/kraken/channel. I’m working with the engineering team with regards to channel-by-ID.

I’d love to see a field in the Channel like type: "partner|affiliate|standard" rather than have look at two different fields to determine what type a channel is.

That’s exactly what this field is, @jordanmkasla2009. Take a look at this endpoint: https://api.twitch.tv/v5/channels/44322889

There is a broadcaster_type field that can be one of: “affiliate”, “partner”, or “”

Yeah I doubt that any streamers would like an app that asks for their Stream Key since using api.twitch.tv/kraken/channel requires the channel_read permission which also gives you access to their stream key.

@ankhheart Yep! That’s why I went back to that team to confirm it was in the channel-by-ID endpoint since it doesn’t require it. :slight_smile:


Also small thing I am wondering is /kraken/ going to be changed to /v5/ or is /v5/ simply the API that is being worked on before it’s pushed to the public /kraken/ endpoint?

@ankhheart We’re trying to migrate the endpoint to /kraken from /v5. Our API has actually supported /v* for a while. Future versions might move away from /kraken and go to versions (while dropping headers/query string) but that’s for a future post. :wink:
