So im here trying to build some stuff a simple app that wants to take some data from analytics and maybe even create a custom report etc.
BUT i cant seem to get the data to my app i can create the reports fine etc, but i cent get any data back other than the report id etc.
What am i doing wrong or how should i proceed with this as the app relys on vendor earnings etc.
You can't get the actual data from the Shopify Analytics using the API. They used to have a ShopifyQL language, but it has been deprecated.
The only way to get data is to use the individual APIs and web hooks.
So in general to use all the different and count the sales in orders ? And group them etc.
Doesn't that seem more inappropriate ?
Or isnt it just gonna make long API requests in the long run ?
I can't really explain why they don't have API access to be able to aggregate data. I just know they don't because we have a reporting app and we had to build it all from scratch.
