Adds basic support for using Apollo’s BatchHTTPLink to send multiple GraphQL operations in a single HTTP request.

Note that this approach does not run operations in parallel - they are executed in order, one at a time. Because of this, and the fact that all operations have to be complete before any can be returned, there’s no guarantee this will improve the performance of your app - do your own research and testing!


composer require bigfork/silverstripe-graphql-batching


Register a new Injector service for your schema (in the example below, we’re using the schema name default) and then point your GraphQL route to it:

    class: Bigfork\SilverstripeGraphQLBatching\Controller
      schema: default
      handler: '%$SilverStripe\GraphQL\QueryHandler\QueryHandlerInterface.default'
      batchMax: 10
    'graphql': '%$Bigfork\SilverstripeGraphQLBatching\Controller.default'

Please note: batchMax is the maximum number of operations that can be included in a single HTTP request. It should match the batchMax value you set when creating the BatchHttpLink in your client-side code (default 10) and should be kept as low as possible. The higher this value is, the more likely it is to become a DDoS attack vector: if you allow someone to run dozens of GraphQL operations in a single HTTP request, it becomes trivial to overload your server.
