wiring question for smart shunt

Hi, I have a smart shunt in my camping solar system. I have bought an A/C charger from Victron as well and want to hard wire it into my system. My question is on the ground do I go direct to the battery negative or do I go downstream of the shunt like all my other ground connections. The confusion for me is all electric users are downstream but this is a supplier so does it matter if it is upstream or downstream of the smart shunt?

If you bypass the shunt with the charger negative, you'll never see the battery charging. Like all the other negatives it goes through the shunt to the battery.
