Hi Oday,

 

You could create an external dashboard within a custom web application (with React for example) that interacts with the Shopify Admin API to perform actions such as adding products. If you have API access to the clients store, you can create a UI that triggers the Admin API in the same way the default admin would.

If I create a UI and run it to the admin API, does it replace the need to create a custom app?

Depending on what functionality you need, it could be enough to just rely on the credentials generated from a private app in the store admin.
