How can I enable and update app embed settings

Considering that theme assets are not available to update from Shopify's Admin API 2023-04, I'm looking for some guidance on updating app embed settings post-installation for a Shopify app. I've been using the URL '<STORE>/themes/<THEME-ID>/editor?context=apps&appEmbed=<APP-ID>' to manage installations, but I'm specifically interested in enabling and updating a block and fill settings through deep links.

before, this can be achieved by sending a JSON payload with the desired settings to this endpoint "themes/<ACTIVE-THEME-ID>/assets".

Does anyone know of a method or specific deep link that allows direct access to these settings without navigating through the standard interface?

Any insights or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi Dripdevelopment,


Would you be looking to update the settings of the app block? If so, I believe you could deploy a new version of the app extensions which will update the settings to the new version.

Thanks for your response, Liam, but what I'm looking for is a way to populate a field in app embed settings using deeplinks. Here is a previous question on this matter
