source_name for product

Hi,

 

For Order there is a field source_name which seems to show who last modified an order, e.g. an app or Shopify. 
I cannot find a source_name field on Product - is there any way to determine whether a given product change was caused by an app (and if so, which app) or Shopify?

 

Thanks,

-Louise

Hey Louise, the source_name doesn't specify who last modified an order.

You can read about the source_name on orders here : https://help.shopify.com/api/reference/order

If you're looking for product changes, the /events.json endpoint may be more appropriate : https://help.shopify.com/api/reference/event#products

Hi Shayne,

Thank you for your answer.

When I look at the documentation, it seems an event should be added for a given product every time the product title is updated. But when I try it out and change the title of a product, and then fetch the events via the API there is not added a new update event?
I waited 5 minutes.

Thanks,
