app name or urls cannot contain the word "shopify"?

5 1 0

I am trying to update the webhook versions for an app that we have published. While trying to update the information on the partners dashboard I get the following messages on multiple fields

App name cannot contain "Shopify"

Domain name cannot contain "Shopify"

We haven't needed to update any of this information for quite a while since the app has been published, so at some point this rule wasn't in place.


Any solutions or workarounds to try and update the webhook version for our app?

Hey @jason90,


We actually just changed the validation rule on the URL, you can use shopify as part of a sub-domain now, just not in the root domain. So you should be good to continue with your existing URLs.


With regards to the app name, the rule about not having shopify in the app name is now enforced across the platform. We require all apps to abide by this rule, so you'll need to make a change and remove the word from your app title in order to make further update to the app.
