Quabbly GraphQL API allows you to create different field types, update a field type, Fetch fields in a board and also to delete fields in a specific board.


This operations are based on the two operators known as Query and mutation.
Query Operator on fields allows you to:

  1. Fetch an array of fields that exist in a board
  2. Fetch the number of fields that exist in a board
  3. Fetch an existing field type from the board by perculiar Id.

While Mutation operator allows you to:

  1. Create a new Field type in a board.
  2. Update a specific field type in a specific board
  3. Delete a specific Field type in a specific board.



You can't update a field by it's field type, just details peculiar to name, description and other properties.
