Boost daemon exposes a GraphQL API that is used by the Web UI to query and update information about storage and retrieval deals.

The GraphQL API query endpoint is at http://localhost:8080/graphql/query

You can also run your own queries against the GraphQL API using curl or a programming language that has a GraphQL client.

Boost has a built-in GraphQL explorer at http://localhost:8080/graphiql

You can test out queries, or explore the GraphQL API by clicking on the < Docs link at the top right of the page:

To run a GraphQL query with curl:

curl -X POST
-H "Content-Type: application/json"
-d '{"query":"query { deals(offset: 5, limit: 10) { deals { ID CreatedAt PieceCid } } }"}'
http://localhost:8080/graphql/query | jq

This 1m video shows how to use these tools to build an run a GraphQL query against Boost:

Example Queries

1. Query failed deals

curl -X POST \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d '{"query":"query { deals(limit: 10, query: \"failed to get size of imported\") { deals { ID CreatedAt Message } } }"}' \
http://localhost:8080/graphql/query | jq

2. Cancel a deal where ab12345c-5678-90de-12f3-45a6b78cd9ef is the deal ID

curl -X POST \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d '{"query":"mutation { dealCancel(id: \"ab12345c-5678-90de-12f3-45a6b78cd9ef\") }"}' \
http://localhost:8080/graphql/query | jq
