makeChangeNullabilityPlugin

NOTE: this documentation applies to PostGraphile v4.1.0+

Use this plugin to easily change the nullability of fields in your GraphQL, where true = nullable (e.g. String), false = non-nullable (e.g. String!).

For more information about nullability in PostGraphile in general, see the FAQ question "Why is it nullable?"

Example

You can combine this plugin with the use of makeWrapResolversPlugin so that only the current user can see their own email address:

const {
  makeChangeNullabilityPlugin,
  makeWrapResolversPlugin,
  makePluginByCombiningPlugins,
} = require("graphile-utils");

module.exports = makePluginByCombiningPlugins(
  // 1: make User.email nullable:
  makeChangeNullabilityPlugin({
    User: {
      email: true,
    },
  }),

  // 2: return null unless the user id matches the current logged in user_id
  makeWrapResolversPlugin({
    User: {
      email: {
        requires: {
          siblingColumns: [{ column: "id", alias: "$user_id" }],
        },
        resolve(resolver, user, args, context, _resolveInfo) {
          if (context.jwtClaims.user_id !== user.$user_id) return null;
          return resolver();
        },
      },
    },
  })
);
