Combining Queries

For the sake of the following examples, let's consider a scenario where a table called Posts exists, having expected fields and relations like title, body, author, etc.

Using multiple queries in a request‚Äč

If multiple queries are combined into a single request, they get executed in parallel, the responses are collated and returned as a single response object. This lets you fetch objects of different and unrelated types in the same query.

query {
/* A profile about the author */
author(name: "Huxley") {
posts {
count
items {
title
}
}
}

/* A list of posts from other authors */
postsList(filter: {
author: {
name: {
not_equals: "Huxley"
}
}
}) {
items {
title
}
}

/* A list of others other than the huxley */
authorsList(filter: {
name: {
not_equals: "Huxley"
}
}) {
count
items {
name
}
}
}
