Where is access token to be used by node @shopify/admin-api-client

I am trying to develop an app that queries the stores which installed my app. I will basically request the orders for the last week.

 

@Shopify/admin-api-client seems to be the way to go on the nodejs. However, I cannot find where my access token is? It is really frustrating as the documentation is very limited on details. I have client ID and secret but I cannot see the panel that reveals the access code. I developed my app using the cli by choosing remix. Could you provide a pointer please?

 

Thanks

Hi Jack,

 

You'll need to use the client ID and client secret to exchange a session token for an access token, in an API call to `https://{shop}.myshopify.com/admin/oauth/access_token`. 

 

There's an example of this in our developer docs here

Hi Liam,

 

May I kindly ask clarity about the below?

 

Do I have to acquire accessToken to be able to use shopify-api for node? If so, do I have to create an oauth approval at nodejs? This is for an embedded public app...

 

If I have to use the exchange instead, could you please let me know what subject_token and subject_token_type are?

 

Many thanks
