I am currently working on creating an app that will need API permissions. When I am in the Partners login and try to create an APP I am not able to give the APP permissions that would allow me to modify: Pages, Themes, and more. So when I go to add the APP from the admin from the setup panel there is this option:
Test your app by installing it on your own development store. You will see what merchants see.
After adding the app I do not have the option of using the api for the development store I created. instead I get this response from an API post:
[API] This action requires merchant approval for read_content scope.
Am I working in the wrong way? Do I need to just create a private APP from within the development store to get the access I need to develop using the API?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
you need to install the app within your store following the process from the dev documentation. Look at the chapter "Step 2: Ask for permission" in https://help.shopify.com/en/api/getting-started/authentication/oauth
Edit: Did you include read_content in your installation URL as follows?
