GraphQL Cookbook

Getting started with Parse GraphQL API


You want to start using a GraphQL API for your Parse app running at Back4App.


  1. If you have already created an app at Back4App, go to the next step. Otherwise, you need to create a new app.

  2. The Parse GraphQL API is available at Back4App since version 3.6.0. Therefore, you need to manage your Parse Server version and make sure it is above or equal to 3.6.0.

  3. Visit your Parse Dashboard (refresh the page in the case it was already open), click on your app -> Core -> API Console -> GraphQL Console.

  4. You are now ready to play around with your Parse GraphQL API on Back4App!
