What does this error mean?

The Missing Access webhooks error is a result of improperly configured permissions for Streamcord in your server.

How do I fix it?

Give Streamcord the following permissions for your notifications channel:

  • Read Messages

  • Send Messages

  • Embed Links

  • Attach Files

  • Read Message History

  • Mention Everyone

  • Use External Emojis

You can modify the role called Streamcord / TwitchBot, or you can change the bot account's permissions.

Extra step for Pro users with Webhooks v1 notifications

Pro users that still have Webhooks v1 notifications set up in their server will need to grant these permissions to the public bot, not the Pro bot; as Webhooks v1 did not have support for the Pro bot.

Deprecation notice: Webhooks v1 will be discontinued on July 1st, 2020. Please switch any Webhooks v1 over to Webhooks v2 as soon as possible to avoid not receiving notifications.


To verify that Streamcord has the correct permissions, you can run a command such as !twitch help in your notification channel.
