JS GraphQL IntelliJ Plugin – Developer Guide


To use the JS GraphQL IntelliJ Plugin an important bit of info for me was creating a .graphqlconfig file at the root of the project. This is where this plugin picks up the schema.

  "name": "Dashboard Schema",
  "schemaPath": "schema.json",
  "extensions": {
    "endpoints": {
      "Local GraphQL Endpoint": {
        "url": "http://localhost:5004/graphql",
        "headers": {
          "user-agent": "JS GraphQL"
        "introspect": true
