Configuring Shopify Accounts

Overview

You must create Shopify accounts to connect to data sources that you want to use in your Pipelines.

Public and custom apps use OAuth2 Account type and private apps use the Basic HTTP Account type.

  • Public app: Public apps are meant for developers who want to distribute their apps to multiple merchants.
  • Custom app: Custom apps are meant for developers building an app tailored for a single merchant. 
  • Private app: Private apps are created for a single Shopify store, or a small group of clients.

Snap-Account Compatibility

Snaps in the Shopify Snap Pack work with different accounts per the following table.

Configuring Shopify Accounts

You can configure your Shopify accounts in SnapLogic using either the Designer or Manager.

Using SnapLogic Designer

Drag a Shopify Snap to the Canvas and click the Snap to open its settings. Click the Account tab. You can now either use an existing account or create a new one.

Selecting an existing account

SnapLogic organizes and displays all accounts to which you have access, sorting them by account type and location. To select an existing account:

  1. Click the  icon to view the accounts to which you have access and select the account that you want to use.


  2. Click  to save the account.

Creating an account

  1. Click Add Account in the Account Reference dialog.

  2. Select the Location in which you want to create the account, select the account type, and click ContinueThe Add Account dialog associated with the account type appears.


  3. Enter the required account details. For detailed guidance on how to provide information associated with each account type, use the following links:

    Enter additional information on this account in the Notes field of the Info tab. This will help you–and other users–understand the purpose of the account, especially if there are multiple accounts of the same type.

  4. Click Validate to verify the account, if the account type supports validation.

  5. Click Apply to complete configuring the Shopify account.

Using SnapLogic Manager

Use Manager to create accounts without associating them immediately with Pipelines.

Accounts in SnapLogic are associated with projects. You can use accounts created in other projects only if you have at least Read access to them.

  1. In the left pane, browse to the project in which you want to create the account and click CreateAccount > Shopify, followed by the appropriate account type.

    The Create Account dialog associated with the selected account type appears. 

  2. Repeat the steps numbered 3 through 5 in the previous section.

Avoid updating account credentials while Pipelines using that account are executing. This may lead to unexpected results, including locking your account.
