I've been using the 2020-07 version of Shopify GraphiQL App for an android app that I've released and come to find out that the subscription schema I used to watch when a new order is placed have not been firing when there is a change, I went to the graphiql playground of the Shopify GraphiQL App and looking at the documentation explorer find out that there is no root for subscription . Have the subscription schema been removed? if so, is there an alternative to watch changes to a specific order/product etc., in real-time?
Solved! Go to the solution
So, App Subscription is still a thing in 2021-07 (latest version) in our GraphQL Admin API (docs here) - 2020-07 is now an unstable API Version as at July 1st.
I was able to query app subscription in the GraphiQL app using all the available versions - could you perhaps supply some screenshots of the requests you are making your end and I can take a look? Thanks!
This is an accepted solution.
No worries! I think I'm with you now. It sounds like - if you're watching for order changes - you'd be referring to GraphQL Webhook Subscriptions.
Taking a look at QueryRoot.webhookSubscription here the naming wouldn't have changed. I've compared back to version 2020-10 of the GraphQL API - it's remained the same.
Are you using Subscription instead of including the full name of WebhookSubscription when subscribing perhaps?
