TODO: Align this with the new demo as soon as reasonable content is available.

  • Create Objects

In addition, you can turn on mutations to modify assets, create object folders and on on.

Note that for Create and Update operate you can query the updated data using the same request. Keep in mind that for all kinds of mutations you need the Write permission.

Create Object

TBD: do we need an extra workspace permission for that ? (in addition to write which would be only used for updates)

Request:

mutation {
  createNews(parentId: 66, key: "testcreate27", published: false) {
    success
    message
    output(defaultLanguage: "de") {
      id      
      creationDate
      fullpath
      title(language: "en")
    }
  }
}

Response:

{
  "data": {
    "createNews": {
      "success": true,
      "message": "object created: 98",
      "output": {
        "id": "98",
        "creationDate": 1559642310,
        "fullpath": "/tests/testcreate2/testcreate27",
        "title": null
      }
    }
  }
}

Update Object

Updates german title and short text and returns the modification date.

Request:

mutation {
  updateNews(id: 773, defaultLanguage: "de", input: {title: "german TITLE", shortText: "new short text"}) {
    success
    output {
      modificationDate
    }
  }
}

Response:

{
  "data": {
    "updateNews": {
      "success": true,
      "output": {
        "modificationDate": 1559746654
      }
    }
  }
}

Delete Object

Request:

mutation {
  deleteBlogCategory(id: 37) {
    success
    message
  }
}

Response:

{
  "data": {
    "deleteBlogCategory": {
      "success": true,
      "message": ""
    }
  }
}
