GraphQL for Salesforce Developers

#1MinuteTip Here is a video on Salesforce Developers channel on YouTube explaining how to use GraphQL.

What is GraphQL?

GraphQL is a query language and runtime for APIs that was developed by Facebook. It allows clients to specify exactly what data is needed from the server and the server provides only that data in response to the query. This approach allows clients to avoid over-fetching or under-fetching data and enables a more efficient and flexible way of querying data than traditional REST APIs.

What is Salesforce GraphQL API?

Salesforce now also offers GraphQL API for sending and receiving data. It offers a single endpoint to call for all data needed in one request. GraphQL APIs are often much more performant than the traditional REST APIs. They are able to reduce round trips to the server through retrieval of all necessary data in just a single invocation.

Here is a video explaning the concept of GraphQL and showcasing its functionality Salesforce Developers YouTube channel.

This video explores the similarities and differences between SOQL queries and GraphQL, providing a smooth learning path for Salesforce developers. And then dive into the advanced capabilities of GraphQL and how it can be used to implement additional use cases.
