About GraphQL API?

Hi,

This relates to this old topic from Google Group: https://groups.google.com/a/shotgunsoftware.com/forum/#!msg/shotgun-dev/0nmeGE_xJdE/87Nxds0OAwAJ

I would be super interested in being able to query Shotgun with GraphQL. It would make a lot of things much easier rather than having to dig the data in many steps.

Cheers,

Thomas

At this time Shotgun doesn’t support GraphQL directly as an API.

Since that google group thread, there is now REST API support:
https://developer.shotgunsoftware.com/rest-api/

There are a few guides out there on how to wrap a REST API in GraphQL, however, that’s not something you’d be able to get direct support on. Although, other members of this forum may be interested in participating, if that’s a rabbit hole you wanted to dive down.

eg. https://graphql.org/blog/rest-api-graphql-wrapper/

Sorry for the late reply @neil.grey! We have had a few discussions recently around that topic internally. I will open a highly related thread now :slight_smile:
