Will a Shopify Redirect URL affect API access?

If I'm writing an app/extension for Shopify, and one of the users of my app sets a Shopify Redirect URL from "/" to an internal page like "/homepage" for some reason, will that break the API, or will Shopify remount the API paths for that site under the redirected page?

Hi Colink,

 

I'm not sure I fully understand this - are you asking if when merchants are interacting with your app in their admin and they move to a different page, will API calls stop?

Not exactly.  I've been given more information about this.  The user is actually redirecting between two different Shopify sites, which is a completely different problem that the user can fix.
