Is there a way to use sha256 modifier in Flow?

I try to push some data into google spreadsheets. But unfortunately I need to encrypt this data via sha256.

I'm aware that there is a liquid modifier for sha256, but it seems that this modifier does not work in flow.

Is there any other solution for this use case?


thank you

I think sha256 filter should be supported in flow. So, I just created a bug report for this problem. 

To learn more visit the Shopify Help Center or the Community Blog.

Hello! Did you ever get to the bottom of this? I'm also getting this error when I try to use sha256 in Shopify flow (specifically, in a POST request via a 'Send HTTP request' step)



The request was unsuccessful
Liquid error: undefined filter sha256

For anyone else who discovers this thread, I've had the following response from Support via Email:


"The Flow app uses the base version of Liquid which doesn't support sha256 at this time." 


So it's not an error, it's just not yet in the tool.


I managed to find a workaround using the 'Run Code' tool and some pure JavaScript in the meantime. It's by no means perfect or ideal, but it works in lieu of any other options.


I hope this helps someone having the same issues as I was!
