Upcoming changes to Asset API approval scope


Action required

Over a year ago, we introduced Theme App Extensions as the recommended way for public apps to integrate into themes. The use of Theme App Extensions is a more streamlined and secure method for merchants to customize their Online Store themes, replacing the need for the Asset API.

As of today, when requesting the unstable 2023-04 release candidate, or future versions of the Admin API, the Asset API access to create, update and delete assets is no longer accessible for public apps. Refer to this guide for more details on the change, exemptions and how to migrate your apps.
