Unable to create Metafield on some resources

7 0 0

Hello, I am experiencing a issue regarding metafields. I am creating a metafield on a Customer resource, result code is 201 and it returns me a metafield resource. However I can not request the metafield with the id in the response body. It is non existent. I also dont see it when I list metafields of same Customer resource.


Here is an example requests "cf-request-id" that returned 201 but failed to create metafield: 095006897b0000a7c2559ff000000001

What's the data you sent?

The request id you've posted here also isn't the right one Shopify would use to review the logs. There'll be another request ID in the returned headers.

I jump on these forums to help and share some insights. Not looking to be hired, and not looking for work.

Don't hand out staff invites or give admin password to forum members unless absolutely needed. In most cases the help you need can be handled without that.

Hi Jason. Thanks for the attention. This is the body I am sending.

	"metafield": {
		"value": "PriceLevelSomething",
		"value_type": "string",
		"namespace": "angapp",
		"key": "prev_tags"


And the id was cf-request-id header from the response. If its not that I guess it should be x-request-id which is: a6560655-7bea-4175-abbf-bea70e713eaa

Using Metafields can be a bit tricky if the key is not sent in properly, it would be complicated to map the products. You can use a metafield app to set this up so that the data sent across is uniform. 

You can also use a feed app that is compatible with the metafield app so that your products are mapped properly. 

You can also check the Easy Google Shopping Feed app by AdNAbu, which manages your merchant center feed and other advanced features such as Multilanguage, Multicurrency, and Metafields.
