The GraphQL API resource allows tasks to connect to a GraphQL API; it typically embodies a base URL as well as e.g. headers that should be included on HTTP requests. For a high-level introduction to resources, see the resources page.

Creating a GraphQL API resource

To create a new GraphQL API resource, visit resources for your team, click the "New" button, and select the GraphQL API resource type. Enter your connection details in the form:
Name should be a human-readable name for your resource.
Base URL should be the singular endpoint of the GraphQL server you want to connect to. Typically this is located at a /graphql endpoint.
Any headers defined at the resource level will be included on all requests that use this resource, unless they are overridden by the task or session block.

Private networking

To connect to a GraphQL API inside a private VPC, you can self-host the agent and run the agent within your own VPC. Since tasks and GraphQL requests run on agents, these tasks will run from within your network and be able to connect to the API.

Accessing from tasks

You can issue GraphQL requests from tasks by using the GraphQL SDK. See GraphQL SDK reference for more information.

Field reference

When this resource is attached to a task, its fields are available in the JSON environment variable AIRPLANE_RESOURCES under the alias it was attached with. For more information, see the GraphQL field reference.
