I'm trying to make a discord bot, which can add a specific role to an user.

const Discord = require('discord.js');
const client = new Discord.Client();
client.on('ready', () => {
  console.log(`Logged in as ${client.user.tag}!`);
});

client.on('message', (message) => {
    let allowedRole = message.guild.channels.find(channel => channel.name === "Streamer");
    let gRole = message.guild.channels.find(channel => channel.name === "Stream 1");
    mention = message.mentions.users.first();
    let member = message.mentions.users.first();
  if (message.content === "addRole") {
      members.get(message.mentions.user.id).addRole(gRole);
  }
});

client.login('mytoken');

I expect that the bot can add role to a specific person

First of all, your first mistake was, that you searched for channel names and not role names in your variable gRole and allowedRole. I changed this 2 variables, so they search for roles instead of channels.

You defined twice the same, once as mention and once as member = message.mentions.users.first(). Because of this, I removed your variable named mention and used the variable member. I found that the code for this variable didn't match the name of the variable because your code returned the user Object and I changed it to the member Object (because your variable is named member).

Lastly, I used your predefined variable member and assigned the role gRole to it, so you don't have to get the member another time.


Try to use the following code:

const Discord = require('discord.js');
const client = new Discord.Client();
client.on('ready', () => {
    console.log(`Logged in as ${client.user.tag}!`);
});

client.on('message', message => {
    const allowedRole = message.guild.roles.find(role => role.name === 'Streamer'); // isn't used
    const gRole = message.guild.roles.find(role => role.name === 'Stream 1');
    const member = message.mentions.members.first();
    if (message.content === 'addRole') {
        member.addRole(gRole);
    }
});

client.login('mytoken');
