Intro

Twitch is a live streaming video platform that focuses on video gaming, including playthroughs of video games, broadcasts of eSports competitions, creative content, and music broadcasts. Use Domo's Twitch connector to retrieve data such as subscriber lists, top videos, subscription information, and more, or to perform a custom search. To learn more about the Twitch API, visit their page (https://dev.Twitch/).

You connect to your Twitch account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Twitch connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your Twitch account and create a DataSet, you must have the username and password for your Twitch account.

Connecting to Your Twitch Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Twitch Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

The Domo Twitch connector uses OAuth to connect, so there is no need to enter credentials within Domo. Click Connect (or select Add Account if you have existing Twitch accounts in Domo) to open the Twitch OAuth screen where you can enter your Twitch username and password. Once you have entered valid Twitch credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Twitch DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Note: If you are already logged into Twitch when you connect in Domo, you are authenticated automatically when you click Add account. If you want to connect to an account that is different from the one you are logged into, you must first log out of Twitch.

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary Reports menu, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.
