Webhook App Version

If I set up a webhook in Settings->Notifications, there is a version setting for each one. As the version might break whatever is called at the endpoint, it seems like this information should be visible in the list of webhooks. It would also be nice if we could just set the version for all of them, as an alternative to per-event.

 

There is also a version for each app (private or public). What does that do? I don't understand the need for another version setting.

Hi @Snodgers ,

 

There is also a version for each app (private or public). What does that do? I don't understand the need for another version setting.

This is specifically for partners who have built apps that subscribe to webhook topics through the Admin API (https://shopify.dev/docs/admin-api/rest/reference/events/webhook?api[version]=2020-04) rather than through the Settings->Notifications page. It allows these partners and app developers to set the version for all the webhook topics that app is subscribed, so app developers do not have to update the version per topic.
