[Developer Preview] Shopify Flow - Use the CLI to manage your tasks


Flow in the Shopify CLI is available in developer preview. We welcome feedback at

Previously, Flow actions and triggers were defined in the partner dashboard. As Shopify CLI adoption has expanded, this meant that you needed to manage and deploy your Flow extensions separately from the rest of your app.

Going forward, you will now create your Flow tasks and actions through the CLI. You can follow these guides for how to create both triggers and actions through the CLI. In addition, you can migrate your existing tasks to be CLI-managed, unifying your code. For more details on what is possible, you can also consult Flow’s reference guide for triggers and actions.

To create Flow extensions using the CLI, version 3.48 or higher is required. Please note that Flow does not currently support the app dev command.
