Unions

About unions

A union is a type of object representing many objects.

For example, a field marked as an ProjectCardItem could be an Issue or a PullRequest because each of those objects can be inside a project card. Using a union instead of an object gives you flexibility.

For more information, see "Introduction to GraphQL."
