Managing graphs and variants


A graph in Apollo Studio represents the entirety of a connected data graph. Every graph has its own associated GraphQL schema.

Creating a graph

To create a graph in Studio, first select the Studio organization that the graph will belong to. Then click New Graph in the upper right and proceed through the creation flow.

Note that every graph in Studio has a globally unique graph name. We recommend that you prefix your graph names with the name of your company or organization to avoid naming collisions.

Viewing graph information

After selecting an organization in Studio, click on a particular graph to view its data and settings. All of a Studio organization's members can access the data and settings for every graph that belongs to that organization.

Managing variants

Every graph in Studio should correspond to a connected data graph. However, a single data graph might run in multiple environments (such as development, staging, and production).

To distinguish between graph activity in different environments, you can define variants for a graph. Each variant has its own schema.

When your server sends data to Studio, it can associate that data with a particular variant. Variants appear as separate items in your organization's graph list, allowing you to view analytics for each environment in isolation.

Transferring graph ownership

You can transfer a graph to a different Studio organization you belong to by visiting the graph's Settings page and changing the graph owner.

Deleting a graph

Deleting a graph cannot be undone!

You can delete a graph from Studio by visiting its Settings page and clicking Delete.
