Blog Studio

Connect 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 Custom App on the external Shopify store that does not have MESA installed on. Then, enter the app's credentials into the Blog Studio Credentials section.

  • External Site Hostname: The beginning part of your Shopify store's URL.
  • Access Token: To find your access token, you can follow these steps.

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

Configuration

Select 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?

MESA workflows that contain Blog Studio triggers (such as Article Created and Article Updated) will run on a polling system. Meaning, on every hour or whatever the selected frequency is selected in your MESA workflow, MESA will look for any recent activity in Blog Studio. As a result, you may not see immediate activity in your MESA workflow until the frequency hits. 

In Blog Studio triggers, you can find the polling system under the Advanced Options. You can keep the default frequency or adjust it.

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

🗒 Note: Please note that available frequencies will differ depending on your MESA billing plan.
