Create custom objects with the new Metaobjects API


As of 2023-01, we're introducing a new Admin API to allow you to create custom data structures called Metaobjects.

Similar to metafields, which enable custom fields to be associated with core resources in Shopify, Metaobjects provide a way to create and associate entirely new data models. The API enables you to do the following:

  • Define objects with granular access control on how merchants and apps can interact with them.
  • Create entries of custom defined objects and make them publishable to storefronts.
