Draft Orders frequently forgotten about with new API or dev features

With the recent addition of Admin Actions to the tools available to app developers, I was hopeful to add this to an app of mine, however there is no target for Draft Orders, only for Orders:-

I've had similar issues in the past such as the App Bridge Redirect object where, you can make use of the ResourceTypes for orders to handle a redirect. However none for DraftOrder, meaning you have to use ADMIN_PATH and create a string with the ID, in order to redirect to a DraftOrder directly.

 

Why are Draft Orders overlooked when new features are added by the Shopify team?

Hi StephenK,

 

Thanks for flagging this inconsistency across resources - it's possible this is on the product teams roadmap. I'll communicate this feedback to them and let you know if there's an update.
