Set up Live Role

Live Role is currently in beta! Refer to the beta FAQ for more information.

Get your server ready

1. Create a role to be added to members when they go live. For example, you could call it "Now Live" or "Streaming on Twitch".

Create a new role in your server.

2. Drag the Streamcord role to the top of your server's role list. If you don't want it to be at the very top, drag it above your live role.

Drag the Streamcord role to the top of the roles list.

3. Give Streamcord the Manage Roles permission.

Under 'General Server Permissions', turn on 'Manage Roles'.

4. Click "Save changes".

Set up your live role through the dashboard

1. Go to in your browser.

2. Log in with Discord.

3. Choose your server from the list.

4. Select the "Live Role" tab.

5. Under the "Live Role" section, open the "Live role" dropdown and select the role you made earlier.

You may notice that some roles are not able to be selected. Roles that meet any of the following conditions are not eligible to be your server's live role:

  • The server's default role (@everyone)

  • The server's Nitro Booster role

  • The role is managed by a bot or integration

6. Click "Update settings".

Note that it may take some time for Streamcord to update roles for some members. If you set up Live Role while someone is actively streaming, the role will not be added until they start another stream.

Optional: Set up a filter role

You can set up a filter role to control who will receive the live role when they stream. The filter role will act as a whitelist.

1. Create another role to act as the filter, or use an existing role.

Make sure that the filter role is below the Streamcord role in your server's role hierarchy. Refer to step 2 under "Get your server ready" for more information.

2. Go to the Live Role tab on your server's page on the dashboard.

3. Under the "Filter role" dropdown, select your filter role.

4. Click "Update settings".
