Learn how to call the GraphQL Admin API

Before you begin

This workshop is for developers who are looking to learn the fundamentals of how to use GraphQL in the context of the Shopify Admin API. We will cover the structure of an API call to a GraphQL API then demonstrate how to access and modify data within a store. We will primarily use GraphiQL to execute our calls, but we will also show examples of how to execute them in a client like Postman or curl.

What you’ll learn

  • How to build and use a basic GraphQL query (Read operations)
  • How to build and use a GraphQL mutation (Write operations)
  • How to use input variables
  • How to use Graphiql, curl and Postman to execute the queries and mutations
