Edit: HTTP Webhooks are now completely gone! All webhooks must be HTTPS moving forwards.

 

Hey all,

 

In 2018 HTTP is a thing of the past, and over ~95% of you agree.  We are looking to reach 100% HTTPS by 2019.  Therefore we are going to start the deprecation of HTTP webhooks completely.  Here is what the timeline looks like:

 

On May 1st 2018, newly created apps will no longer be able to create HTTP webhooks.
On July 1st 2018, all apps will no longer be able to create HTTP webhooks.
On January 1st 2019, all remaining HTTP webhooks will be removed.

 

As always feel free to comment with and questions or concerns.

Regards,

Shopify Apps Team

To clearify, is a "new API client" an App created after May 1st or a store that newly authenticates with your application after that date?

That means an app created after May 1.

Clayton is correct, I will edit the original post for clarity.

Will https webhooks require a valid SSL certificate?

Is there any way that this can be extended to May 7?

We are using private apps.

Hi Paul,

The change for May 1st only affects new apps created after May 1st.  The change should go out later today, we are not extending the date.

Sorry I asked this a few day ago but never got a reply and there's nothing in the documentation as far as I can tell.

Will https webhooks require a trusted SSL cert that is signed from a trusted CA such as Verisign, Digicert, etc?

Hi John,

Yes this has been required since February.

Cheers,

Ryan
