Connecting Blog Studio with MESA

When you're setting up a workflow with a Blog Studio Trigger, MESA will automatically connect to the Shopify store that you have installed MESA on and no further action is necessary. 😊

But, when you're setting up a workflow with a Blog Studio Action such as Blog Studio Create Article, you will need to create a Private App on the external Shopify store that does not have MESA installed on. Then, enter the app's credentials into the Shopify Credentials section.

Afterwards, you can re-use the newly created credential and select it for your future workflows!


Selecting a Blog to send the article to

For MESA's Blog Studio Create Article and Blog Studio Update Article actions, you will need to specify a Blog, in the Step Configuration's Blog field. Your online store has a default blog called News but you can select any other Blog. Click here to learn more about what a Blog is.

I don't see my Blog Studio workflow activating when I update something in Blog Studio?

For Blog Studio Triggers (such as Article Created and Article Updated), the Blog Studio app will run every hour, on the hour, and will look for any recent activity in Blog Studio. As a result, you may not see immediate activity in your MESA workflow until the hour hits. 

Once the hour hits, MESA will process every single task that has accrued within the previous hour.
