Authentication

Twitch uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Twitch account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Twitch and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Twitch API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:
