Hi @AlexanderWeb ,


The screenshot with the permissions error looks like the Shopify GraphiQL Explorer app which would not have the same permissions as the custom app in the last screenshot.


To add the permission for reading metaobjects you would need to add that permission to the Shopify GraphiQL explorer app by checking the box for that permission near the bottom of the installation page when installing it. 


Here's a link to that installation page:


Have a great day,
