Hi,

I am writing a Shopify app integration feature which intends to duplicate the 'main' published theme for a Shopify store and then based on the main previous theme, make add small adjusts to templates files for a client to preview .

I have tried the following methods to create a new theme file and managed to copy all files expect for config/settings_data.json successfully which seems to be changing when added to a newly created themes code.


Method 1) Create new theme via zip file:

POST /admin/api/2020-10/themes.json
{
  "theme": {
    "name": "debut[new-install]",
    "src": "http://themes.shopify.com/mytheme.zip",
    "role": "unpublished"
  }
} 

config/settings_data.json content in newly created theme  :

{
}

 

Method 2) Create new empty theme

POST /admin/api/2020-10/themes.json
{
  "theme": {
    "name": "debut[new-install]""role": "unpublished"
  }
}

 Then copy all assets from current active themes assets list them via:

GET /admin/api/2020-10/themes/828155753/assets.json?asset[key]=templates/index.liquid

 Then PUT each asset from current theme into the new unpublished theme via :

PUT /admin/api/2020-10/themes/828155753/assets.json
{
  "asset": {
    "key": "config/settings_data.liquid",
    "value": "<<content of original file>>"
  }
}

Same results for method 3 shown at bottom of post.

 

Method 3) Use method 2 as above however specifically upload settings_data.json file as settings_data_new.json, then use asset endpoint duplication as below:

PUT /admin/api/2020-10/themes/828155753/assets.json
{
  "asset": {
    "key": "config/settings_data.liquid",
    "source_key": "config/settings_data_new.liquid"
  }
}


I check and can confirm that the file settings_data_new.json is an identical match to the main original theme file before making a copy.

After duplicating settings_data_new.json into a new settings_data.json file within the newly created theme, this results are incorrect settings_data.json file and missing various segments from the original file.

settings_data.json - result from method 2 & 3
