I am trying to set up a demo migration of products to a new website with Cart2Cart. They have asked me for the API Password - where can I find this? 

Thanks

Hi there @lauren-randr!

Don here from Shopify.

I just wanted to let you know I have moved your query here to our API forums, as this will be the best place to get info on this.

This is due to the fact that we're not able to provide developer-level support ourselves, so directing your question to this forum would be your best chance at getting an informed response.

Our developers and Partners monitor and respond to these threads, so hopefully, you'll get the info you need from your fellow Community members here.

All the best!

 

Regards,

Don

  • Step 3: Hit “Create a new private app”

In App Details section: Enter your private app name and email

In Admin API section: Set all the assess level permission to “Read and write”

Remember to click Reviewed disable API permissions to expand the full list permission and then set those levels, too.

Hi Timmy

Many thanks for your reply! I have had to enable the private app feature.
Can I check if it is necessary to change the access for all the areas? I'm
not sure I'm 100% comfortable doing that so I'd wanted to check if it I
really needed to do it for all of them for the process to work...

Thanks

Hi @lauren-randr

When you creating a new Private app, you need to grant this app with permissions to enable data interaction with your store.

Actually, you may grant permissions only to those entities that engage in the migration process. However, to ensure your data transfer accurately and seamlessly, it's highly recommended to set "Read and Write" permission status (or "Read Access" if "Read and Write" is unavailable) to all the entities available.
