GraphQL new custom fields

20 August 2019
Enhancement
CustomizationDeprecationGraphQL

The customFields field on GraphQL queries is deprecated in favor of the new custom field. customFields is still available for use in queries, but we strongly encourage all users to switch to using custom in GraphQL queries. For more information about this change, see Beta Features.

We are deprecating the existing customFields graphQL field present on all fields having custom fields for a better alternative.

In the new approach, all fields having custom fields have the new custom field exposes the following sub-fields:

type RawCustomField {
name: String!
value: Json!
}
type CustomFieldsType {
typeRef: Reference!
type: TypeDefinition
"This field contains non-typed data. For a typed alternative, have a look at `customFields`."
customFieldsRaw(
includeNames: [String!],
excludeNames: [String!]): [RawCustomField!]
"This field contains typed data"
customFields: Type!
}

The customFields provides access to typed custom fields.

The new custom field improves the performance of the query as long as you don't use typed fields. For example:

fragment customFields on ProducePrice {
custom {
typeRef {
id
}
rawCustomFields {
name
value
}
}
}

If you use custom.customFields then you won't profit from the better performance.
