Metaobject Retrieval

Shopify Partner
9 1 2


I'm making a metaobject via the GraphQL mutation (CreateMetaobject($metaobjectMetaobjectCreateInput!))
I then want to reference this MetaObject in a customer metafield, as far as I can tell, to do this I need the metaobject ID. The ID is not passed back when making the metaobject so I need to request it using the objects handle, however I dont understand the documentation about that request (
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, Tom

Hi @tinyman1199 , the handle in a Metaobject can function as a custom id. You can retrieve a Metaobject by querying the handle as an ID. There is an example in this doc here that might give more clarity on that query. Hope this helps.
