Custom API Action

Make a custom, authenticated HTTP call to the Shopify API.


Field Definition Type Required
Request Type These are supported HTTP request methods, or HTTP verbs, in a custom API call (see HTTP request methods).
  • GET: Retrieves data from a web server based on parameters. This method requests a representation of the specified resource. If a request is successful, a 200 (OK) response message is returned with the requested content.
  • POST: Sends data to a web server based on parameters (for example, uploading a file). Multiple POST requests may result in a different outcome than a single POST. Exercise caution to avoid sending multiple POST requests unintentionally. If a request is successful, a 200 (OK) response message is returned.
  • PUT: Sends data to be stored at a specific location on a web server based on parameters (for example, uploading a file). Unlike POST requests, PUT requests are idempotent. For successful requests, the result of a single PUT request is the same as many identical PUT requests. If a request is successful, a 200 (OK), 201 (Created), or 204 (No Content) response message is returned.
  • PATCH: Applies partial modifications to a resource on a web server based on parameters. PATCH isn't idempotent. Multiple PATCH requests could have unintended consequences. If a PATCH is successful, a 200 (OK) or 204 (No Content) response message is returned.
  • DELETE: Deletes the specified resource (if it exists) from the web server based on parameters. If a DELETE is successful, a 200 (OK) response message is returned.
Dropdown TRUE


Field Definition Type Required
Relative URL

URL address on the web server to which you're attempting to interact. Specify the relative URL as /{insert_remaining_URL}. You can specify query parameters in the relative URL using "?", or specify the query parameters as an object key pair in the Query input.

For example, for the Shopify API endpoint, the relative URL is /admin/customers.json.

If you specify an API version in your Relative URL, Shopify must have released that version within the previous 12 months. If you receive an error, you need to update the version in your Relative URL and remove any deprecated payload.

Without an explicit API version, you're always interacting with the oldest valid version of the Shopify API.

String TRUE

Specify any additional query parameters that should be included, using the Object format (key value pairs).

Object FALSE

Specify any headers required in addition to authorization or content-type (the connector already handles these two).

Object FALSE

Specify a request body in JSON format. Only available for POST, PUT, and PATCH requests.

The Custom API action card returns an error if you use any of these deprecated attributes in the request body:

  • value_type

  • valueType

  • accepts_marketing

  • accepts_marketing_updated_at

  • marketing_opt_in_level

Object FALSE


Field Definition Type
Status Code Result of the operation. The connector returns an HTTP status code that indicates whether the action taken by the card succeeded or failed. For example:
  • A 201 Created status code indicates success where a new resource was created.
  • A 403 Forbidden error indicates that the HTTP request wasn't processed because the necessary permissions were missing.

For a full list of possible status codes, see HTTP status codes.

Headers Detailed context for the status code, unrelated to the output body. Response headers depend on your selected HTTP request option. Not all headers are response headers. This is similar to {"Content-type":"application/json"}. Object
Body Data returned from your selected HTTP request.

For example, the data from a GET request.
