Private metafields

Private metafields are similar to other metafields, but they have the following limitations:

  • Private metafields are accessible only by the app that created them.
  • Private metafields are deleted when the app that created them is uninstalled.
  • Private metafields are accessible only from the GraphQL Admin API. They're not accessible through Liquid or the Storefront API.
  • An app can create a maximum of 10 private metafields per resource.
  • Private metafields don't support metafield definitions.
