Testing historical orders

Shopify Partner

We are building a Rails app and have successfully written tests using GraphQL. However, some tests are failing because the test orders were created over 60 days in Shopify. We tried requesting the `read_all_orders` Shopify API scope but Shopify support denied our request. Any ideas? We don't want to create new Shopify orders every 60 days just to make sure the tests pass.

Hi @Claire222 

Are historical orders over 60 days old required for the app to function? If not, can you adjust the test with stubbed/fake data instead?

Unfortunately the test is to ensure the data syncing with Shopify is working, so using stub data wouldn't work.

Whats the procedure for generating fake data in development stores? does shopify allow us to populate development stores with dummy data for different dates and times?
