Shopify theme asset fetch: theme ID in path and as query param

I've noticed in the docs for the asset API that when fetching an asset by key, the theme ID is included twice:

 

https://help.shopify.com/en/api/reference/online-store/asset#show-2019-07

 

GET /admin/api/2019-07/themes/#{theme_id}/assets.json?asset[key]=templates/index.liquid&theme_id=828155753 

 

In our testing, the query parameter is useless and we can successfully fetch just providing the path. What is the use case, if any, for including the query parameter, and is it safe to omit going forward?

This is an accepted solution.

Hey @smahr,

 

The query param appears to be ignored. I'll kick off a conversation on this end to confirm and update the docs. Thanks for reporting!
