6. Exercise: Creating a supergraph1m

Exercise: Creating a supergraph

🎯 Goal: Create a supergraph on GraphOS using our existing starting point of the Comet Cruises GraphQL API.

Comet Cruises API
https://comet-cruises-api.herokuapp.com/

You'll need a Studio account with the Serverless plan.

Head over to Apollo Studio and follow the onboarding steps to create a supergraph!

Note: If you already have an account, make sure that you're on the Supergraphs tab in Studio when you start the New Supergraph onboarding flow.

Bonus discussion questions

  • What's a good name for this first subgraph? Think: what business domain is it focused on?
  • What's the difference between the supergraph ID and the supergraph name? When/where would the ID or the name be used in: the developer workflow? GraphOS?
  • What are the "advanced options" for creating a supergraph in Step 1 for? When might you use them?

Once Studio is showing an "Almost done!" message, we'll keep going with the slides while we wait for it to do its thing!
