@envelop/operation-field-permissions

Disallow executing operations that select certain fields. Useful if you want to restrict the scope of certain public API users to a subset of the public GraphQL schema, without triggering execution (e.g. how graphql-shield works).

Note: This plugin and authorization on a resolver level (or via middleware) are complementary. You should still verify whether a viewer is allowed to access certain data within your resolvers.

Installation

yarn add @envelop/operation-field-permissions

Usage Example

import { parse, validate, specifiedRules, execute, subscribe } from 'graphql'
import { envelop, useSchema, useEngine } from '@envelop/core'

const getEnveloped = envelop({
  plugins: [
    useEngine({ parse, validate, specifiedRules, execute, subscribe }),
    useSchema(schema),
    useOperationFieldPermissions({
      // we can access graphql context here
      getPermissions: async context => new Set(['Query.greetings', ...context.viewer.permissions])
    })
    /* ... other envelops */
