Shipper_id from REST API


I noticed that there was shipper_id field in Shipments when shiphero used REST API.
There is no shipper_id in Shipments from GraphQl API. I thought the warehouse {legacy_id} is the same as shipper_id, but they are not through comparing the same records.

Do you have any idea what field in graphql api is the same as shipper_id from rest api?



Hi @heyjess!
Do you have an old record you can share? (just the ID)
So that way I can see if I can find what is that ID and how to pull it using the GraphQL Public API
Thanks in advance!

Hi Tom,

I think this is the ID: 61788396
“shipper_id”: “5519”


Thanks for that @heyjess!

I see what you mean now, that field is not currently available, but I will request for it to be added

Thanks for that info!
I will let you know as soon as I have a response back

Hi @tomasw

I know you mentioned already there is no ETA yet but could you please request for setting ETA?
To go forward with ShipHero data in my team, we need Shipper_id ASAP.
I’m sorry to rush you.

Hi @tomasw !
It’s been for a while since we’ve discussed this issue.
Is there any progress on this?

HI @heyjess ,
This query will return the carrier, is that helpful?

query {
  shipment(id: "<shipment id here>") {
    data {
      shipping_labels {

Hi @Theresa

Thanks for the response :slight_smile:

Carrier is carrier name.
Before Shiphero change to GraphQL, there was shipper_id data populated when using REST API.
For example “shipper_id”: “5519”
However, after they’ve switched to GRaphQL, those data is not provided.
I confirmed with @tomasw about this issue and he created ticket for that.
