⚡️ Pro Feature ⚡️ This feature is bundled with GraphQL-Pro.

Getting Started

To use GraphQL::Pro::OperationStore with your app, follow these steps:


OperationStore requires two gems in your application environment:

These are bundled with Rails by default.

Prepare the Database

If you’re going to store data with ActiveRecord, migrate the database to prepare tables for it.

Add OperationStore

To hook up the storage to your schema, add the plugin:

class MySchema < GraphQL::Schema
  # ...
  use GraphQL::Pro::OperationStore

By default, it uses ActiveRecord. It also accepts:

Add Routes

To use OperationStore, add two routes to your app:

# config/routes.rb

# Include GraphQL::Pro's routing extensions:
using GraphQL::Pro::Routes

Rails.application.routes.draw do
  # ...
  # Add the Dashboard
  # TODO: authorize, see the dashboard guide
  mount MySchema.dashboard, at: "/graphql/dashboard"
  # Add the Sync API (authorization built-in)
  mount MySchema.operation_store_sync, at: "/graphql/sync"

MySchema.operation_store_sync receives pushes from clients. See Client Workflow for more info on how this endpoint is used.

MySchema.dashboard includes a web view to the OperationStore, visible at /graphql/dashboard. See the Dashboard guide for more details, including authorization.

GraphQL Persisted Operations Dashboard

operation_store_sync and dashboard are both Rack apps, so you can mount them in Rails, Sinatra, or any other Rack app.

Update the Controller

Add operation_id: to your GraphQL context:

# app/controllers/graphql_controller.rb
context = {
  # Relay / Apollo 1.x:
  operation_id: params[:operationId]
  # Or, Apollo Link:
  # operation_id: params[:extensions][:operationId]

  # ...
  context: context,

OperationStore will use operation_id to fetch the operation from the database.

See Server Management for details about rejecting GraphQL from params[:query].

Next Steps

Sync your operations with the Client Workflow.
