How to turn off Redact POST payloads

I have an App running that stores no data. Simply fixes problems with sales channels like Amazon. The App is now being hit with constant Redact data payloads, which I promptly dump in > dev/null, but still. It litters my logs.

 

Is there some way to just turn these annoyances off? I get it for Apps that store data. But for ones that do not? It seems like overkill. I have nothing in the three GDPR style boxes for my App, so what gives?

Raised the issue on the Community Slack channel the first time Amazon changed their policy for orders that go to thirdparties, I doubt Shopify is going to improve that by making it selective and send the redacts only to apps really operating on orders/customers data.

 

We don't even log these now :)  and just filter them out.

Funny, but the geniuses at Amazon HQ et al, don't realize that now there is a bum's rush on to simply dump all the customer and order data to Amazon Redshift and other DB's so as to persist this data no matter what. So they are asking for one thing on the left-hand and facilitating the total opposite on the other.

 

I get it that they want to protect the sacred data, and as a property worth billions, therefore being prime to sue the pants off of, but it is all for naught. I already have many requests to dump the valued info into off-site DB long-term storage. Not that I am acting on those requests, but it is like sticking your finger in the dike. The flood just continues over there, and over there, and over there.

Haha. Shopify substituted **bleep** for **bleep**? A **bleep**? Definition, a pile of dirt or sandbags meant to keep floodwaters out. Why is that a bad thing? And why you censor? Shopify ???

Absolutely agree, and the sad part of it is that most of them do it only to say they've done it. By no means this is done to protect Shoppers data.

Wishful thinking. I am Thor. I wave my hammer and all email addresses and customer phone numbers will disappear. Shazam!

 

Phew. There. We're all good now.
