I'm new on developing Shopify Custom App.

  1. I have created the custom app as explained in this page .
  2. I have installed Laravel on the server as explained in this page.
  3. I have installed this library and merged this template.
  4. I have created the test shop and could installed the custom app from the shop admin panel into the shop successfully.
  5. Next I want to authenticate the shop and there is a route to authenticate the shop in the template as follows:
    Route::get('/api/auth', function (Request $request) {
        $shop = Utils::sanitizeShopDomain($request->query('shop'));
        // Delete any previously created OAuth sessions that were not completed (don't have an access token)
        Session::where('shop', $shop)->where('access_token', null)->delete();
        return AuthRedirection::redirect($request);
    Route::get('/api/auth/callback', function (Request $request) {
        $session = OAuth::callback(
            ['App\Lib\CookieHandler', 'saveShopifyCookie'],
        $host = $request->query('host');
        $shop = Utils::sanitizeShopDomain($request->query('shop'));
        $response = Registry::register('/api/webhooks', Topics::APP_UNINSTALLED, $shop, $session->getAccessToken());
        if ($response->isSuccess()) {
            Log::debug("Registered APP_UNINSTALLED webhook for shop $shop");
        } else {
                "Failed to register APP_UNINSTALLED webhook for shop $shop with response body: " .
                print_r($response->getBody(), true)
        $redirectUrl = Utils::getEmbeddedAppUrl($host);
        if (Config::get('shopify.billing.required')) {
            list($hasPayment, $confirmationUrl) = EnsureBilling::check($session, Config::get('shopify.billing'));
            if (!$hasPayment) {
                $redirectUrl = $confirmationUrl;
        return redirect($redirectUrl);
    But I have no idea how to call this route.

Can anyone let me know how to authenticate or show me the explanation or sample?

Thanks in advance.

I could solve this issue by myself.

I updated the application URL with /api/auth from the dashboard and installed the application then this url was called and authenticated.
