When fetching payouts data getting `access denied` Error. via GraphQL API.

Store type - development store.
Access scopes - App is already granted with  `read_shopify_payments_payouts` and `read_shopify_payments_disputes` access scope.


{ shopifyPaymentsAccount { id activated payoutStatementDescriptor } }

In doc mentioned, that for being able to fetch payouts data, your app needs to be granted `read_shopify_payments` and when I tried with `read_shopify_payments` scope It will throw an error

Also tried to fetch this data from `shop.shopifyPaymentsAccount`,- facing the same error.


Looked further into the doc and find that we need Requires the approval scope. Could you please guide what that means we need approval from Shopify for that particular scope or something else?

FYI -> Successfully fetching data related to other granted scopes (orders, customers, products).

I will be glad to get help or any ideas about this issue.

Hey @_JB we have tried to get an update our previous ticket here:


Is there any update from the developers on Shopify Payments payouts being accessible through the GraphQL API when they have been granted the necessary scopes?
