Discount API not creating a Discount Code

Hello,

 

I want to use the API to create custom discount codes. When sending a POST request to "/admin/api/2023-10/price_rules/1660066169167/discount_codes.json" it always returns a 200 and creates nothing. In request header I send the "X-Shopify-Access-Token" Parameter and my body looks like the following:

 

 

{
    "discount_code": {
        "code": "TEST1782387162387127"
    }
}

 

 

I created the price rule simply with creating a discount code manually and deactivating it. I tried this because creating a price rule via API has the same result. Even when trying the example code, nothing happens.

 

I am using a custom private app which I created directly in my shop settings.

 

What am I doing wrong? Any help would be really appreciated.

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Best regards,

Alex

Hey @ets_shop 

 

Are you able to capture the request ID from the response headers? I can check out the logs to see what's going on.

Hey @ets_shop 

 

Thanks for the request ID - That looks like a GET request. Are you able to capture a request ID of the failing POST/creation?

Hey @SBD_ , thanks for the reply. I am pretty sure that it was the POST request. Here is another request ID: 8bf84edb-74ea-4d34-9336-2cc6f937acb4. A GET request to the same URL results in an Error 400.

 

Thank you very much.
