HulkApps squad is on its way up, and we want you with us. We’ve been working on an update to groove that makes the app stronger and more useful. We’ve added a bunch of cool new features to the Metafields Master App recently and I’m too excited to introduce the latest one. FYI this is a PRO feature.

With this update, you can now create a metafield with a value type of json_string, which allows you to store structured data and access it using Liquid 

This makes it easy to store arbitrary structured data within the Shopify platform and access it inside Liquid templates. Notably, when accessing the value of 'json_string' value type metafields, the data is deserialized to an iterable hash or array.

You’re reading this article so I can assume you’re using Metafields Master app. Moreover, if you’re a pro user, you can leverage this newly added feature into your store. Here’s how you find it in your store.

Step 1: Go to app > dashboard > Select the resource > Eg. Product

Metafield Product

Step 2: Select the product

Metafield object

Step 3: Create New Metafield

Product Update : New 'json_string' value type for Metafield object

Step 4: Add parameters and select the type of string > select Json String

Product Update : New 'json_string' value type for Metafield object

Step 5: Hit the “Save” button and you’re all set!

I bet, this is surely going to be a gamechanger! To my knowledge, this is the first time merchants will have the ability to create real data hashes that can be manipulated in liquid.

That’s it!

Pro Users, check out the app & leverage the newly added feature. Users who still are not a part of our PRO plans, It’s the right time you Upgrade!
