What can you do with this extension?
- Query your shops products and variations with complex filtering options.
- Query customers, orders, coupons, and refunds (*).
- Manage a customer's session with JWTs and cart/customer queries and mutations(*).
- Create orders manually (*), automatically with the checkout mutation, or pass a customer's session to the WooCommerce checkout page in your theme for complete payment gateway support (#).
(#) This is the recommended method on checkout. You can read it's usage in this excellent write-up by @jacobarriola
Why don't the WooCommerce CPT GraphQL types support all the same features as most WordPress CPTs that WPGraphQL exposes?
The CPTs as well as most of the data objects that WooCommerce defines are wrapped in a object managers distributed by a data store system.
This data store system allows for each individual data object to be defined however needed. What this means is, although by out of the box objects like products, orders, and coupons are defined as WordPress CPTs they don't have to be.
This is what also enables WooCommerce to store most meta connected to these CPTs in separate tables. The object data doesn't even have to be in the same database if the object's data store designed to manage somewhere else, but we are getting out of the scope of this question.
What does all this
This has led to some friction is certain areas of the schema where WooGraphQL support is lacking. I'm sorry for the inconvience, myself and whole WPGraphQL org are working to reduce this friction and WooGraphQL properly integrated with all WPGraphQL + WPGraphQL ACF features.
Thank you for your patience @kidunot89
- Product CRUD mutations.
- And some other stuff I'm sure :thinking_face:
Feel free to test out the extension using this GraphiQL Playground. The playground allows you to execute queries and mutations, as well as view the schema (*).
(*) I have a tendency to forget to update the playground between releases
