Metafield for Store

New Member

I´m bulding an embedded app helping merchants to integrate a small info banner into their shop. I´m planning to store the configuration of this banner (e.g. content, color, styles) in a metafield that is attached to the entire shop (in contrast to metafields that are connects to products or orders). Here are my questions: 

1. Is it possible to create this metafield once after app installation?

2. Is it possible to create this metafield via the GraphQl Api and, if yes, which mutation should i use for this?

Hey @Jusch 

You could try adding a private metafield to the shop object using this mutation.
