Checksum on Flow App Workflows

Checksum on Flow App Workflows

I created a workflow using the Flow App. I can export it and import it without any issues.

The workflow is a template for an integration. There's a HTTP request with header that need to be changed based on the client. 

 

The issue is that if I change it on the .flow file, when I import it is no longer valid. Taking a look to the content of the file, there's what it seems a checksum at the beginning of the file that prevents any changes on it.

 

Is there a way to modify the .flow file and regenerate the checksum? Can I skip that part entirely? 

 

 

Thanks a lot

I don't think there's any way to bypass the checksum. I wonder if one way to do this would be to store the api keys as shop metafields and then pull them into the flow dynamically?

It's a possible solution but it will imply more configuration to the end user. The idea is that non-technical people can use it.

For now we implemented a small tutorial where we explain how to modify the variable from the workflow

Yeah that's probably a better idea now that I think about it.
