Session-based / GraphiQL

Institution administrators that are logged into Eduflow can access the API endpoint and query through the graphql interface.

When logged in, go directly to https://app.eduflow.com/api/graphql

Hovering over an object will show an introspection tooltip, typing will show autocompletion hints
GraphiQL has a searchable documentation available on the sidebar

If you access via browser, the GraphQL endpoint will show GraphiQL

To open GraphiQL's sidebar, mouseover an object in the query and click an object inside a tooltip, or clicking "Doc":

This is found on the top right of GraphiQL if the sidebar is closed.

GraphiQL works with both session-based (logged into app.eduflow.com) and by passing authorization headers.
