How to access app owned meta object in theme app extensions's liquid file?

My app is creating object definition and also adding object entries using graphql. I followed the doc https://shopify.dev/docs/apps/custom-data/ownership#create-a-metaobject-definition-under-a-reserved-...


The type is here "$app:my_objects" which is automatically resolved to "app--123456--my_objects".

But how can I access object items in theme app extension's liquid file.
shop.metaobjects.my_objects.values does not work in liquid.
shop.metaobjects["$app:my_objects"].values also does not work as $app is not resolving like graphql.

 

Only shop.metaobjects["app--52855472129--my_objects"].values is working. But I think I can not use hard coded type name in liquid file as it will be generated by shopify when the app will make the graphql request.

 

Thanks in advance!

Bump on this. I'm also searching for a solution. Have you had any such luck?

I ended up using shop.metaobjects["app--52855472129--my_objects"].values in liquid file, the APP ID(52855472129) is a constant value and remains same for all merchant stores. I guess it's not a standard approach, but couldn't find any solution.
