Leveraging legacy systems in GraphQL


Basic Drupal 8 understanding and coding experience.

Session details

When developing new enterprise architecture, we are always standing on legacy systems that we can’t get rid of.

Wonder, how to bring that stuff in our newly built system which uses GraphQL?


Fortunately, Drupal’s GraphQL module’s plugins come to the rescue and help us to import data using REST API calls.

In this session, we’ll discuss:

  • What is GraphQL and basics about GraphQL

  • What are GraphQL plugins

  • How we can use GraphQL plugins to make a call and fetch data from external systems.

Who should attend?

  • Developers

  • Site builders
