- Click on Apps, then click on Manage private apps at bottom of page.
- Click Create a new private app.
- At App details section, enter Private app name.
- At Admin API section, click on Review disabled Admin API permissions to expand full list of permissions, then specify the API resources and permissions to which your app/migration requires access. If you want to use this Private app for Next-Cart migration program, set all access levels of the following permissions to Read access (if Shopify is your Source store) or Read and write (if Shopify is your Target store): Locations, Products, Store content, Customers, Inventory, Orders, Themes.
- At Storefront API section, uncheck/disable Allow this app to access your storefront data using the Storefront API option.
