The problem is that there is no option to enable the embedded SDK when creating a private app. What I have done, similar to other comments, is build a public embedded app and simply not publish it. The problem there is I can't figure out h...

API Reporting

Hi there, I'm wondering if there are any limitations on what can be pulled back in relation to reporting data from the API.

Notification (webhook) when a user's Oauth token expires

Is there any sort of callback or webhook I can register that will have Shopify notify me when a users oauth token expires? We only use webhooks, and the webhooks just stop sending when a token expires. Willapp/uninstalled do? The user hasn't uninstalled the application, their token just expired for some reason. Thanks!
