How do I stop using Shopify CLI to manage my app?


I initially created an app using the Shopify CLI, but now I don't want to manage it with the CLI. I want to change my app scopes, but simply re-authorising with a changed scopes in the `/admin/oauth/authorize` call doesn't change the requested scopes. I believe this is because I initially deployed the app using the `

shopify app deploy` call which now means that the scopes are fixed to those in the `toml` file and the `scope` query param in the auth url is ignored.
Can I "eject" my app from CLI control so that I can update the scopes simply via auth. Or is there some other way to achieve this?

Hi Stemail23,


From chatting with our team it seems it's only possible to migrate from a Partner Dashboard-managed app to Shopify CLI, but not the other way around. What would be the reason that you want to use auth instead of the toml file method?
