Writing Metafield values available on the Customer Account API


Action required

As of the 2024-07 version of the Customer Account API, you will be able to use the metafieldsSet mutation to assign metafield values on Customer, Order, Company, and CompanyLocation resources.

As part of this change, the Customer Account API will need to be granted explicit read or read/write access to metafield definitions in order to have access. This represents a breaking change because as of this version, metafield definitions without access permissions will not be available to the Customer Account API.

The 2024-07 version of the Admin API will allow you to set access controls as part of the metafieldDefinitionCreate and metafieldDefinitionUpdate mutations.

These changes can be tested today on the unstable versions of the Customer Account and Admin APIs.
