I cannot create a record by performing a POST using Shopify's REST API and Basic Authentication. For example, I tried performing a POST to the following URL:
Along with the body:
"value": "Value for test metafield",
"description": "This is the description"
When I try sending it no metafield gets created for the product. Instead, I get a status 200 with HTML as the response as shown below:
window.location = "https:\/\/accounts.shopify.com\/oauth\/authorize?client_id=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\u0026destination_uuid=4xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\u0026nonce=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\u0026prompt=merge\u0026redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Fxxxxxxx.myshopify.com%2Fadmin%2Fauth%2Fidentity%2Fcallback\u0026response_type=code\u0026scope=email%20https%3A%2F%2Fapi.shopify.com%2Fauth%2Fdestinations.readonly%20openid%20profile%20https%3A%2F%2Fapi.shopify.com%2Fauth%2Fpartners.collaborator-relationships.readonly%20https%3A%2F%2Fapi.shopify.com%2Fauth%2Fbanking.manage\u0026state=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\u0026ui_locales=en\u0026ux=shop";
I can perform GETs and PUTs in which I can retrieve metafield records as well as update existing metafields. But anytime I perform a POST (or create a new record), I get the same response as above.

How are you making the request? Is this via the browser? Postman? Something else? I am guessing you're sending cookies in the request so that's being blocked for good security reasons. Remove those cookies and you may find the result differs.
