Requesting data from a GraphQL server ‚Äč

In addition to requesting data from a REST API, you can also request data from a GraphQL server. Let's use the following example from Github's API docs:

js
query {
  repository(owner: "octocat", name: "Hello-World") {
    issues(last: 20, states: CLOSED) {
      edges {
        node {
          title
          url
          labels(first: 5) {
            edges {
              node {
                name
              }
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

To perform this request in Wized, first create a Body field called query, and then include the query as a string value using template literals:

GraphQL request example

When you're using template literals you can inject values into your string, including data from your Wized data store with ${}.

In the example above, some request data is injected like this:

js
`owner: ${r.get_user.data.name}`;
