Making your first GraphQL query

Let’s create a sample table and query from it using the Hasura console, a UI tool meant for doing exactly this:

Create a table

Head to the Hasura console, navigate to Data -> Create table and create a sample table called profile with the following columns:

profile
id integer
name text
../../../_images/create-profile-table.png

Insert some sample data into the table:

id name
1 john
2 shruti
3 celine
4 raj

Try out a query

Head to the GraphiQL tab in the console and try running the following query:

query {
  profile {
    id
    name
  }
}

You’ll see that you get all the inserted data!
