Shopify Connector

Summary

The Jitterbit Harmony Shopify Connector establishes access to Shopify.

The Shopify connector provides an interface for creating a Shopify connection, the foundation used for generating instances of Shopify activities. These activities, once configured, interact with Shopify through the connection.

The Shopify connector is accessed from the design component palette's Connectivity tab (see Connectors in Design Component Palette).

Connector Overview

This connector is used to first configure a Shopify connection. Activity types associated with that connection are then used to create instances of activities that are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).

Together, a specific Shopify connection and its activities are referred to as a Shopify endpoint:

Shopify activity types

  • Read: Retrieves all object data from Shopify and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Query: Queries specified object data from Shopify and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Create: Creates object data in Shopify and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Update: Updates object data in Shopify and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Delete: Deletes object data from Shopify and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

Note

Verbose logging can be enabled for this connector when it is used with a Private Agent. See Verbose Logging for Connectors for details.

Invoke verbose logging for this connector using this configuration entry:

<logger name="org.jitterbit.connector.verbose.logging.shopify" level="DEBUG"/>

Prerequisites and Supported API Versions

The Shopify connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.

The Shopify connector uses the Shopify REST Admin API 2022-04. Refer to the API documentation for information on the schema nodes and fields.

Rate Limits

The Shopify REST Admin API 2022-04 enforces a rate limit of 40 requests per app per store per minute. This allotment replenishes at a rate of 2 requests per second. The rate limit is doubled for Shopify Plus stores. For more information on the rate limit, see the Shopify REST Admin API 2022-04 rate limit documentation.
