Shopify Connector Setup


The Shopify connector allows you to integrate Shopify into your data flow by pushing or pulling data from Shopify’s API. Follow the steps below to connect ArcESB to Shopify.

Establish a Connection

To allow ArcESB to use data from Shopify, you must first establish a connection using OAuth login. The connection can be created from either the connector configuration pane or the Connections tab of the Settings page.

Note:

  • The login process is only required the first time the connection is created.
  • Connections to Shopify can be re-used across multiple Shopify connectors.

From the Connector Configuration Pane

  1. Drag a Shopify connector into an ArcESB flow and give it a name.

  2. In the Connector Configuration pane, click + Create next to the Connection drop-down list.

  3. The Add Connection modal appears. Enter a name for the connection and click Connect.

  4. A new window opens for logging into Shopify. Enter your credentials and log in.

  5. If prompted, grant permissions for ArcESB to connect to Shopify. You will then return to ArcESB.

  6. Click + Add Connection to finalize the connection.

  7. In the Connection drop-down list of the connector configuration pane, select the newly-created connection.

  8. Click Save Changes.

From the Settings Page

  1. Open the Settings page, and then click the Connections tab.

  2. Click + Add to open the Connection Type modal.

  3. Click Shopify, then click Next.

  4. Continue from step 3 above for Connection Configuration Pane.

Select an Action

After establishing a connection to Shopify, you must choose the action that the Shopify connector will perform. ArcESB can interact with Shopify in 4 ways. The table below outlines each action and where it belongs in an ArcESB flow:

Action Description Position in Flow
Upsert Inserts or updates Shopify data. By default, if a record already exists in Shopify, an update is performed on the existing data in Shopify using the values provided from the input. End
Lookup Retrieves a value from Shopify and inserts that value into an already-existing Arc message in the flow.
The Lookup Query determines what value the connector will retrieve from Shopify. It should be formatted as a SQL query against the Shopify tables.
Middle
Select Retrieves data from Shopify and brings it into ArcESB.
You can use the Filter panel to add filters to the Select. These filters function similarly to WHERE clauses in SQL.
Beginning
Execute Stored Procedures Treats data coming into the connector as input for a stored procedure, and then passes the result down the flow.
You can click the Show Sample Data button to provide sample inputs to the selected Stored Procedure and preview the results.
