Can I make a graphQL mutation in Shopify flow "run code" action?

Just curious because I am writing a flow to send an http request to an endpoint to update a metafield on my store but if the "run code" action can do this then it cuts out a lot of extra moving parts.

This is an accepted solution.

No, it's right in the docs, see limitations and roadmap section: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/shopify-flow/reference/actions/run-code#limitations

That said, why do you need to us that to update a metafield. Flow does have actions for updating metafields.

Thank you for the quick response! Really I am trying to update a field on a metaobject. Based on this post linked below, it looks like it is possible to get metaobject values with the run code. I am doing this now so I can send an http request to an app. I was just wondering if I could just update within run code as well it would have made the process a lot simpler.

Ok. I would continue to use Run code to generate the value you want to update and then use Send HTTP Request to update the metaobject.
