Admin action extensions are now generally available


Admin action extensions are now generally available and can be deployed to apps. These new extensions enable you to seamlessly integrate your app's functionality into the Shopify admin by embedding workflows and UX on core admin pages.

Once deployed, merchants can find actions in the “More actions” menus at the top of Products, Orders, and Customers pages in the admin. When a merchant launches the extension, it will appear as a modal over the current page. By giving merchants access to your app's functionality, without the need to navigate away from their current task, these extensions help increase efficiency and productivity.

Admin action extensions come with direct API access, enabling them to use the Admin GraphQL API without having to proxy the calls through their app's backend resulting in faster and more responsive apps.
