GraphQL Mutations

GraphQL mutations have been brought back. Unfortunately we had to remove them a while ago, because the implementation had a critical bug and it was not possible to solve this bug with the GraphQL library we use. A few days ago a new version of this library has been released and it was possible to fix the bug. Squidex has mutations to create, update, change and delete content items. These are the most important functions when dealing with content. It is not planned to release management mutations with GraphQL as we already have the REST interface for that.

Field level rules

This was a feature that was requested in one way or another by many people. The idea is to have field rules that update the content form based on the value of other fields.

In our example we have a schema that can be used for news and articles. The type of the content is defined with a field and represented as a radio button. Furthermore we have a text field and slug field for the URL, which is only needed for articles.

To hide the slug field we can use a field rule:

And this is how it looks in the content editor:
