    also I would like to run validation on my mutations, is this usually done inside resolvers?
    thank you @bbuck
    how the server get notified when a client unsubscribe?

    @alfiehub There is now a PR addressing the lack of ability to render DefaultValues properly in introspection. graphql-go/graphql#398
    hi guys, i am using graphql apollo. is there a way to secure the fetching of schema? if anyone knows the server address they can easily fetch the schema.

    Good afternoon guys, I am new in GraphQL and I have some questions about your handler. I would like to provide at the same endpoint different queries and mutations via body in JSON format.

        "query" : "{readUsers {id, username}}"
        "mutation" : "{createUser(username:\"Andrea\")}{id,username}"

    The first query action works because handler manages the "query" value, but it seems from the code that is not the same for "mutation" field.
    How could I achieve my goal?


    All, I'm working on a project where almost all queries / mutations require
    us to pass a 'project id' as the first parameter. For example:

    query getUsers(projectId = "123", other parameters...) { ... }
    query getComments(projectId = "123", other parameters...) { ... }

    Rather than having the id as an explicit input parameter to every query / mutation,
    is there a preferred way for the frontend to pass this information to the backend?

    The approaches I've considered so far are: 1) Attach the id via HTTP headers, or
    2) Attach the id as a query parameter to every GraphQL request? Ex:

    Stephan Meijer
    i would go with 2), simply because it's easier when fiddling arround
    But I would be sure to make it as an alternative way of providing, not as the only way.
    Make sure that the native way also still works.
    i like that idea. thanks @smeijer

    Good afternoon, could someone tell me something about the issue graphql-go/graphql#414 ?

    Moreover, I would ask you about BindFields method. Have you ever tried to execute it on a structure which has some time.Time fields? It seems that BindFields doesn't handle that.

    Hi guys. Thanks for this awesome project first.
    I’m new to graphql-go.
    Now I had a question, how to define a custom Field in Fields.
    For example, there is an Author and a Book
    Song Liu
    Author := graphql.Fields{
      “id”:         &graphql.Field{Type: graphql.Int},
     “name”:  &graphql.Field{Type: graphql.String},
    Post := graphql.Fields{
      “id”: &graphql.Field{Type: graphql.Int},
      “author”: &graphql.Field{Type: ???}  <— how to define here?

    Is there any good example for Subscription with Spring Boot application? I have tried the example in spring boot examples repo, but It is stacked at: "Your subscription data will appear here after server publication!"

    I have found this too: https://jivimberg.io/blog/2018/10/23/reactive-graphql-subscriptions-from-kafka/ but dependencies are missing and It is Kotlin and not Java...

    I’ve two queries which don’t have parameters:

    GetInventory(): Int!


    LogoutUser(): null

    Both fail with following error:

    Syntax Error: Expected Name, found )

    If I add name: String it works but they don’t need arguments. Can you please assist me solving this error?

    I use import {buildSchema} from 'graphql‘; to build the schema for express-graphql server.

    const schema = buildSchema([typeDefs, operations].join('\r\n'));

    Where typeDefs is a concatenated string of all types and operations contains concatenated mutations and queries.

    Hey everyone,how to give 'Blob' in graphql
    Ex: I gave Blob in my spring boot code so now i need to integrate that spring code with graphql,so i need to give type say for example (type graphql{
    id:int!,name:string!,email:string,image:(For this what i have to give),Thanks in advance

    use a base64 encoding and make it a string
    hey guys, how come my delete query doesn't force my component to rerender?
    deleteNote = async (id) => {
        try {
          const { deleteNote } = this.props
          const response = await deleteNote({
            variables: { id },
            update: (proxy, { data: { deleteNote } }) => {
              try {
                if (!deleteNote) return
                const data = proxy.readQuery({ query: myNotesQuery })
                data.threads.edges = data.threads.edges.filter(({ node }) => node.id !== id)
                proxy.writeQuery({ query: myNotesQuery, data })
              } catch (e) {
        } catch (e) {
    the data does change but afterproxy.writeQuery it doesn't update my component

    How do you people generate the documentation for the schema defined in Golang? i was looking at https://github.com/2fd/graphdoc which does it from JSON, but i'm not sure how much work would be in generating some JSON from the Golang defined Schema
    Matti Andreas Nielsen
    Nvm, i found a open issue with it, giving me good directions. :)

    Hi all, does anyone know of a way to effectively avoid binding a field to a name in a query result, so that inline fragments which handle different types can present the same output format?
    e.g if one fragment access a variable "url" several layers deep, and another only goes one layer deep, the end result is flat in both cases with a field "url

    Oke I have a question, what is the best way to hide data in your client? So lets pretend I need the address of an user, I will query this by his user name, This means that client will send a http request to my graph API. Lets assume we got an user with bad intentions and he sends the same http request but with a different query to get the complete user information (including all private data and data needed for the server only). What is the best way to protect and hide private and extra data, so not all his data is accessible to him? Should i make different models, extra queries or what would you guys do?

    p.s: sorry for my bad english

    Hi..I am using apollo angular where I am accessing graphql server which is configured in drupal8. I am trying to register a new user using createUserUser mutation but getting some permission error. Please help me out.
    Tom H Anderson
    @priyagr You'll have better luck in a drupal chatroom.
    @glennyengelen your graphql should be protected with a service. I recommend OAuth2. Then only authorized users can fetch their data. If you have to add further filtering on the graphql endpoint then do so. I honestly feel using graphql to get user data is very bad. Just use a /me RPC to get current user data.
    @TomHAnderson ok cool. Thanks

    How can i solve the lost update problem in graphql properly?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Write%E2%80%93write_conflict

    For example two users fetch the same resource, both users submit their mutations (e.g. a update on a resource) one after another then the first update will be overwritten by the second one

    In Rest there is the E-Tag to "lock" a resource optimistically
    another solution would be versioning the resource. every query gets the version of a resource and provides this in the mutation request. if it doesn't match with the servers one another update modified the resource in the meantime

    How are you guys handling input data sanitize over mutations? for validation im using joi, but no idea what to use for sanitize or if I should just make some validations by myself?
