This Symfony bundle adds a GraphQL server to Ibexa DXP and Ibexa Open Source.

The schema: /graphql


It first and foremost exposes the domain modelled using the repository, based on content types groups, content types and fields definitions. Use it to implement apps or sites dedicated to a given repository structure.

Example: a Ibexa site.

Warning: this feature requires specific setup steps. See the Domain Schema documentation.

In addition to the schema based on the content model, the repository's Public API is also available under _repository. It exposes content, location, field, url alias... It is recommended for admin like applications, not limited to a particular repository.

Example: an Ibexa Admin UI extension.

Repository schema documentation


Install the package and its dependencies using composer:

composer require ezsystems/ezplatform-graphql

Add the bundles to config/bundles.php (pay attention to the order, it is important):

return [
    // ...
    EzSystems\EzPlatformGraphQL\EzSystemsEzPlatformGraphQLBundle::class => ['all' => true],
    Overblog\GraphQLBundle\OverblogGraphQLBundle::class => ['all' => true],
    // ...

Add the GraphQL routing configuration to app/config/routing.yml:

    resource: "@OverblogGraphQLBundle/Resources/config/routing/graphql.yml"

    path: /graphql
        _controller: Overblog\GraphQLBundle\Controller\GraphController::endpointAction
        _format: "json"

Generate your schema

Run the command that generates the GraphQL schema:

php bin/console ibexa:graphql:generate-schema
php bin/console cache:clear

It will generate a lot of yaml files in app/config/graphql/ezplatform, based on your content types.


The graphical graphQL client, GraphiQL, must be installed separately if you want to use it. As a developer, you probably want to.

composer require --dev overblog/graphiql-bundle

Add OverblogGraphiQLBundle to the dev bundles:

// config/bundles.php
return [
    // ...
    Overblog\GraphiQLBundle\OverblogGraphiQLBundle::class => ['dev' => true],
    // ...

Add the GraphiQL route to app/config/routing_dev.yml:

    resource: "@OverblogGraphiQLBundle/Resources/config/routing.xml"

Open http://<yourhost>/graphiql.
