API health report

When a feature of a Shopify API is deprecated, you need to update your affected apps to make sure they continue to work for the merchants using them. You can view an API health report for each of your public and custom apps. The report shows you any deprecated calls your app is making and the deadline for updating those calls in your app.

As well as checking the API health report, you can follow the developer changelog to make sure you're aware of any breaking changes that might affect your app. You can learn more about how to update your apps in our versioning guide.

View an app's health report

  1. Log into your Partner Dashboard.
  2. Click Apps.
  3. Click the app's status indicator in the API health column.

The API health report shows the status of the app and a list of any deprecated API calls it has made in the past 30 days. Each deprecated call in the list shows additional information about what you need to do to update your app.

API health statuses

API health status reflects any calls made with an app's access token in the last 30 days. An app can have one of the following statuses:

  • OK: The app has not made any deprecated API calls in the last 30 days.
  • Fix by (date): The app has made deprecated API calls that must be updated by a certain date. This status can appear with either a yellow or a red indicator:
    • A yellow indicator means that you have between 30 days and 9 months to update your app.
    • A red indicator means that you have less than 30 days to update your app.
  • Fix overdue: The app is making API calls to unsupported API versions and could be causing significant issues on stores that have it installed.

Since access tokens affect API health status, don't use an app's access tokens outside of the app. Any deprecated API calls will change an app's status. For example, your support team's Postman or Insomnia collections can cause a Fix by or Fix overdue status.

Check the status of an updated app

After you update an app to remove all the deprecated calls, the app's status stays as Fix by (date) on the API health report for up to 30 days.

The app's status changes 30 days after the app last made a deprecated call. If the update deadline is less than 30 days away, then the app's status changes on the day after the update deadline.

When 30 days or the update deadline has passed, the app's status changes to OK. The time of the last deprecated call displays below the app's status indicator on the Apps page in the Partner Dashboard.

You can verify that your app is no longer making deprecated calls by filtering the API health report:

  1. Log into your Partner Dashboard.
  2. Click Apps.
  3. Click the app's status indicator in the API health column.
  4. Click Last day to show unsupported calls that the app has made in the last 24 hours.

If the report is empty, or the unsupported resources are no longer shown, then your app has been updated. The app's status will change to OK automatically after 30 days.
