As of Tyk v3.0.0, you can now publish GraphQL APIs, including Universal Data Graph APIs(UDG) to the Tyk Developer Portal.

When you do that, your API consumers can navigate through a GraphQL Playground, with an IDE complete with Intellisense.

Video Walkthrough

We have a YouTube walkthrough of how to publish a GraphQL API to your Developer Portal:

How To Set Up

Simply create a GraphQL or Universal Data Graph API, create a Policy which protects it, and then publish it to the Developer Portal Catalogue.

In the “Create a Catalogue” section, at the bottom, make sure you enable the “Display Playground”

And then, when your API consumers are on the Developer Portal Catalogue and click on View Documentation, they will be taken to the GraphQL Playground.
