Queries

About queries

Every GraphQL schema has a root type for both queries and mutations. The query type defines GraphQL operations that retrieve data from the server.

For more information, see "About queries."

Note: For user-to-server GitHub App requests, you should use separate queries for issues and pull requests. For example, use the is:issue or is:pull-request filters and their equivalents. Using the search connection to return a combination of issues and pull requests in a single query will result in an empty set of nodes.
