The Update shop metafield action adds a metafield to the shop that triggers the workflow, or updates an existing metafield on that shop.
The Update shop metafield action contains the following fields.
|Metafield namespace||Required. A metafield namespace is a container for a group of metafields. Grouping metafields within a namespace prevents your metafields from conflicting with other metafields.|
|Key||Required. A key is an identifier for the metafield value.|
|Value||Required. The value is the information to be stored in the metafield. The value is always stored as a string, regardless of the metafield's type.|
|Type||The data type of the metafield's value.|
The Update shop metafield action can be used in any workflow.
In this example workflow, a metafield is added to a shop when a collection is created in that shop.
