Hi Shopify Team,

I'm a developer of the app.

I want to my system be able to cancel the order and make a refund automatically after webhook for "orders/create" were triggered.

How can I refund the order? Cause Shopify API documenation says that I need to specify the location_id of the items that were in that order (location_id is required).  
So how can I get these location_ids ?

Hey Alex, 


To get potential location_ids for a refund, there are GraphQL and REST examples in our guide here.


While the guide is for updating inventory, the same steps still apply for retrieving a location_id - you'll just only need the 'Step 1' and 'Step 2' parts.

Hi @Josh I'm trying to do the same thing. Was able to get potential location ID's, but do you know how to get the location ID that Shopify assigns?

Example: When you look at the order details page, you see a location for each line item. How do you get that location that shows in the line item in the orders page?
