I am using Shopify Admin action extension and using network access outside Shopify.
In the web/front-end folder, I create authenic and I can get session in here.
But in the admin extension folder, I tried to import the authentic function from web/front-end folder to there but it's not working.

 

My structure:

--extension

   --admin-action-extension

      --index.ts

--web

  --frontend

     --authenticate

        --index.ts

Please help me. I was stack here in 3 days

Thank you for confirming your use case!

If you are making API calls to your apps backend, when you use fetch() to make a request to your app's configured auth domain or any of its subdomains, an Authorization header is automatically added with a Shopify OpenID Connect ID Token. There's no need to manually manage session tokens. Docs here

Hi there 👋

If you are inside of an Admin Action Extension and you want to make an API call to Shopify you can use Direct API Access. 

Any fetch() calls to Shopify's Admin GraphQL API from your extension are automatically authenticated by default.

You can review this tutorial on using Direct API Access from within Admin Action extension

Thank for your reply but I don't want to make a call API to Shopify's Admin, I created an API outside from another server and I want to make a call API to there

@nhtbao101 Is this solution working for you?  I am using fetch(app:/path) from an admin extension, but am not getting an Authorization header sent with the request. https://community.shopify.com/c/authentication-and-access/authorization-header-not-sent-with-fetch-f...

Hey @lizk , I am trying to make requests to a separate server that is not my configured auth or subdomain. Is there a way for me to manage session tokens manually in the admin UI extensions? Here is my question (https://community.shopify.com/c/authentication-and-access/how-to-manually-manage-session-tokens-in-a...
