Shopify Flow Easier Metafield Access

Changelog update from Thursday, April 25, 2024
Posted by Galen King in Apps

You can now check metafield values more easily in the Shopify Flow app. Each resource (product, orders, etc.) has a new metafield field. When you choose metafield, you can select from a list of known metafields for that resource. Selecting the metafield will generate an alias, which Flow uses to get the metafield data, usable in subsequent steps and liquid. The variable will show up in a group titled 'Fields with arguments'. You can also now use metafield types in Flow, such as accessing a product reference's title. Previously, checking metafields required looping over the metafields list and was treated like strings, causing potential performance issues. This old method will be deprecated soon.
