Scalars

About scalars

Scalars are primitive values: Int, Float, String, Boolean, or ID.

When calling the GraphQL API, you must specify nested subfields until you return only scalars.

For more information, see "Introduction to GraphQL."

Boolean

Represents `true` or `false` values. 

Date

<p>An ISO-8601 encoded date string.</p> 

DateTime

<p>An ISO-8601 encoded UTC date string.</p> 

Float

Represents signed double-precision fractional values as specified by [IEEE 754](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_floating_point). 

GitObjectID

<p>A Git object ID.</p> 

GitRefname

<p>A fully qualified reference name (e.g. <code>refs/heads/master</code>).</p> 

Preview notice

GitRefname is available under the Update refs preview. During the preview period, the API may change without notice.


GitSSHRemote

<p>Git SSH string.</p> 

GitTimestamp

<p>An ISO-8601 encoded date string. Unlike the DateTime type, GitTimestamp is not converted in UTC.</p> 

HTML

<p>A string containing HTML code.</p> 

ID

Represents a unique identifier that is Base64 obfuscated. It is often used to refetch an object or as key for a cache. The ID type appears in a JSON response as a String; however, it is not intended to be human-readable. When expected as an input type, any string (such as `"VXNlci0xMA=="`) or integer (such as `4`) input value will be accepted as an ID. 

Int

Represents non-fractional signed whole numeric values. Int can represent values between -(2^31) and 2^31 - 1. 

PreciseDateTime

<p>An ISO-8601 encoded UTC date string with millisecond precison.</p> 

String

Represents textual data as UTF-8 character sequences. This type is most often used by GraphQL to represent free-form human-readable text. 

URI

<p>An RFC 3986, RFC 3987, and RFC 6570 (level 4) compliant URI string.</p> 

X509Certificate

<p>A valid x509 certificate string.</p>
