Access options for custom data

Access options help you adjust what areas of your store can display your custom data on the Storefront.

Turning on Storefront access allows you to use the metafield or metaobject for your Storefront in your Online Store 2.0 theme editor, through Liquid, with dynamic sources, or with Custom Storefronts and Hydrogen.

Turn on or turn off Storefront access

You can turn on or turn off Storefront access for your metafields and metaobjects.


  1. In your Shopify Admin, go to Settings > Custom data.
  2. Click the part of your store that has the metafield or metaobject you want to change the access options for.
  3. Click the metafield or metaobject.
  4. In the Access section, toggle Storefronts to turn off or on.
  5. Click Save.
