PriceRule API POST returns 200

im calling the PriceRule API with a POST request like this:


"price_rule": {
    "title": "testcode100",
    "target_type": "line_item",
    "target_selection": "all",
    "allocation_method": "across",
    "value_type": "percentage",
    "value": "-10.0",
    "customer_selection": "all",
    "start_at": "2020-04-13T14:00:0Z",
    "once_per_customer": "false"


Example Request ID: 5677e1d9-e788-4131-89a2-87aa73331694


The Response i get is a 200 Code (instead 201) with a result success(1413 bytes).

However the response body is a HTML with a <a href>Continue which looks like it wants me to login, which does not help at all of course.


Inside my private app settings i have following settings:

Discounts - Discounts GraphQL API -> Read & Write

Discounts - PriceRule REST and GraphQL API -> Read & Write


Im using the REST API inside an iOS Swift project.


What exactly is here the problem?

This is an accepted solution.

Hi @bobbyk ,


If you are getting a 200 response that contains an HTML response from the Shopify REST Admin API, chances are the HTML page you are getting is the 'Log In' page asking you to enter your credentials to authenticate with Shopify.


This means there is something incorrect with your authentication in your API request. For your POST request make sure you have the "X-Shopify-Access-Token" header set to your private app's password. Read more about how to properly authenticate a private app with the Shopify REST Admin API here:
