Creating checkout with items returning null with graphql storefront API

Solved

When using the graphql storefront api, I can create an empty checkout, but if I try to create a checkout with items, or add items to an existing checkout, the checkout comes back null.

This works:

mutation {
  checkoutCreate(input: {}) {
    checkout {
      id
      webUrl
      lineItems(first: 5) {
        edges {
          node {
            title
            quantity
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

which returns

{
  "data": {
    "checkoutCreate": {
      "checkout": {
        "id": "Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9DaGVja291dC80NGFkMzA1NzEyNmVjMTY0YzU0ODE0MGQ1OWU1ZjcyYj9rZXk9ZDNlNjRkNzU2ODg2NDdiNzJmNDViNzcwYjYyYWQ3MTM=",
        "webUrl": "https://knowyourh2o.myshopify.com/25164513346/checkouts/44ad3057126ec164c548140d59e5f72b?key=d3e64d75688647b72f45b770b62ad713",
        "lineItems": {
          "edges": []
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

But this fails:

mutation {
  checkoutCreate(input: {
    lineItems: [{ variantId: "Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0VmFyaWFudC8zMjE0ODUzODYyMjAxOA==", quantity: 1 }]
  }) {
    checkout {
       id
       webUrl
       lineItems(first: 5) {
         edges {
           node {
             title
             quantity
           }
         }
       }
    }
  }
}

which returns:

{
  "data": {
    "checkoutCreate": {
      "checkout": null
    }
  }
}

I can't for the life of me figure out what he issue is.  The variantID is correct as verified by the below  query to the admin by using the variantID:

query {
  node(id: "Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0VmFyaWFudC8zMjE0ODUzODYyMjAxOA==") {
    ... on ProductVariant {
id
    }
  }
}

which returns:

{
  "data": {
    "node": {
      "id": "gid://shopify/ProductVariant/32148538622018"
    }
  },
  "extensions": {
    "cost": {
      "requestedQueryCost": 1,
      "actualQueryCost": 1,
      "throttleStatus": {
        "maximumAvailable": 1000,
        "currentlyAvailable": 999,
        "restoreRate": 50
      }
    }
  }
}

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thank you!

This is an accepted solution.

Figured it out.  Total newbie problem.  The product was not yet made available to the sales channel.
