This module provides:

  • a basic GraphQL implementation for the OXID eShop
  • authorization and authentication using JWT
  • a query to log you in and get a JWT for further authentication


  • Full documentation can be found here.
  • Schema documentation available here.


This assumes you have OXID eShop (at least OXID-eSales/oxideshop_ce: v7.0.0 component, which is part of the 7.0.0 compilation) up and running.

# Install desired version of oxid-esales/graphql-base module, in this case - latest released 8.x version
$ composer require oxid-esales/graphql-base ^8.0.0

After requiring the module, you need to activate it, either via OXID eShop admin or CLI.

$ ./bin/oe-console oe:module:activate oe_graphql_base

How to use

You can use your favourite GraphQL client to explore the API, if you do not already have one installed, you may use Altair GraphQL Client.

To login and retrieve a token send the following GraphQL query to the server

query {
    token (
        username: "admin@admin.com",
        password: "admin"

You could simply fire up your terminal and use curl to do a basic check if the GraphQL base module is up and running as expected. To retrieve a valid token you need to replace the username and password below with valid login credentials.

$ curl http://oxideshop.local/graphql/ \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --data-binary '{"query":"query {token(username: \"admin@admin.com\", password: \"admin\")}"}'

You should see a response similar to this:

    "data": {
        "token": "a-very-long-jwt"

This token is then to be send as your authorization with every request in the HTTP Authorization header like this:

Authorization: Bearer a-very-long-jwt
