Class: GraphQL::UnionType

Defined in:
lib/graphql/union_type.rb

Overview

A Union is is a collection of object types which may appear in the same place.

The members of a union are declared with possible_types.

A union itself has no fields; only its members have fields. So, when you query, you must use fragment spreads to access fields.

Examples:

A union of object types

MediaUnion = GraphQL::UnionType.define do
  name "Media"
  description "Media objects which you can enjoy"
  possible_types [AudioType, ImageType, VideoType]
end

Querying for fields on union members

{
  searchMedia(name: "Jens Lekman") {
    ... on Audio { name, duration }
    ... on Image { name, height, width }
    ... on Video { name, length, quality }
  }
}
