Bounty: 50

I have a graphql server and a role table, and I would like to save multiple roles within one mutation.

I searched a lot but found nothing.

How can I do something like:

mutation {
  addRoles (roles: [
    {
      name: "role1",
      description: "role 1"
    },
    {
      name: "role2",
      description: "role 2"
    },
    ...
  ])
}

In other words, how to implement addRoles and updateRoles resolver?

Is a for loop the only option? Is it possible to save all roles in one DB call?

The role model:

@Entity("role")
@ObjectType()
export class Role extends BaseEntity {
  @Field((type) => Number)
  @PrimaryGeneratedColumn()
  readonly id!: number;

  @Field()
  @Column({ length: 64 })
  name!: string;

  @Field({ nullable: true })
  @Column({ length: 512, nullable: true })
  description!: string;
}

And add and update resolver:

@Resolver((of) => Role)
export class RoleResolver {

  @Mutation((returns) => Boolean)
  async addRole(
    @Arg("role") role: AddRoleInput
  ): Promise<Boolean> {
    const roleExists = await Role.count({ name: role.name });
    if (roleExists > 0)
      throw new Error(`Role with name "${role.name}" already exists!`);

    const newRole = Role.create(role);
    await newRole.save();
    return true;
  }

  @Mutation((returns) => Boolean)
  async updateRole(
    @Arg("role") role: UpdateRoleInput
  ): Promise<Boolean> {
    const oldRole = await Role.findOneOrFail(role.id);
    Object.assign(oldRole, role);
    await oldRole.save();
    return true;
  }
}

And AddRoleInput and UpdateRoleInput


@InputType({ description: "New Role Argument" })
export class AddRoleInput implements Partial<Role> {
  @Field()
  name!: string;

  @Field({ nullable: true })
  description?: string;
}

@InputType({ description: "Update Role Argument" })
export class UpdateRoleInput implements Partial<Role> {
  @Field()
  id!: number;

  @Field()
  name!: string;

  @Field({ nullable: true })
  description?: string;
}
