Updated permissions on the Shopify Online Store app for GitHub


The Shopify Online Store app for GitHub lets you associate a GitHub account with your Shopify login to sync changes to your themes continuously for faster development.

We are expanding this integration with GitHub to simplify the future development experience for building and deploying custom storefronts. In order to support this functionality we require additional permissions: Admin, Deployments, Pull requests, Secrets, and Workflows. The GitHub app will only require these permissions to work with custom storefronts.

We are asking for the minimum GitHub app permissions that we require to build a smooth experience for you. Ignoring this request won’t affect your work with the Online Store channel, and you can always come back to grant the permissions as needed.

Learn more about the GitHub integration with Shopify from Shopify Developer docs.
