Customer Account API scopes

Hi, I'm trying to search which are the allowed scopes for the Customer Account API OAuth 2.0 flow.


There are 3 listed: 
- openid
- email

I assume these are examples. Where is the full scope list and what each scope allow? also what in the world does that URL even mean? These are not described anywhere in the API version 2024-01

Hi PurpleGecko,


What you're listing (openid, email, that URL) are not scopes themselves but parameters on the scope field. Those three parameters are what is being requested from the Shopify Identity service, so that the access token that is being returned has permissions for those aspects (like their email etc). There are no other options other than those three at the moment. That api.customers URL is just a name of the Customer Account API scope you are requesting permissions for and it does not need to be modified. 


Hope this helps,
