Discord Integration

This a quick guide of how to setup Nightbot for Discord.

No idea what Discord is? Discord is an all-in-one voice, video, and text chat for gamers that’s free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone. Check them out at discordapp.com!

Setup

  1. If you don't have a Discord account and a Discord server, make one at discordapp.com. Need help doing that? Check our Discord's help desk.

  2. Sign into Nightbot and head to the Integrations tab. Here all integration settings for Discord are managed.

  3. Clicking "Connect" will open a popup where you allow Nightbot to access your Discord account information. Upon granting access you'll then be able to add Nightbot to a Discord server. Select your server from the dropdown list and click "Authorize."

  4. Nightbot should now be in your Discord Server! Nightbot is given a Discord role named "Nightbot" with the permissions you just granted it. You can modify the role's permissions and colors as wanted. All of your Nightbot commands will now be functional in your Discord server.

  5. For further customization, click the "Settings" button for your server on the Nightbot Integrations page. For each userlevel, select a Discord role for Moderators, Regulars, and Subscribers (if applicable). Enabling "Role Syncing" will auto-sync these roles every 15 minutes for active users in your server. Click "Update" to save these settings. Note: In order to sync, users must connected their Twitch/YouTube account to Discord in their "Connections" settings.

  6. Need some light auto moderation? You can also toggle "Spam Filtering" will allows Nightbot to filter messages as it does in your stream's chat. Because there is no timeout function in Discord, Nightbot will only delete a user's message (not timeout/kick/ban them).

FYIs

  1. Nightbot's role must be seated above roles you want it to sync in your server's settings. Discord will disallow Nightbot from granting roles above its own role.

  2. Nightbot does not sync subscribers. Discord has a built-in subscription integration with Twitch and YouTube, so the role selection for Subscribers is only used to identify existing subscribers in the server.
