Plugins

This page will be most useful for users what are familiar with GraphQL Concepts and understand the basics of writing GraphQL Queries.

Querying Plugins

WPGraphQL provides support for querying Plugins in various ways.

Plugins can only be queried by authenticated users with proper capabilities to update plugins.

List of Plugins

Below is an example query to get a list of plugins.

Query from Public User

If a public user queries for plugins, nothing will be returned as Plugins are considered private and require “update_plugins” capability to view.

Query from Authenticated User

If an authenticated user with “update_plugins” capabilities queries for plugins, they will get a list of plugins in response. This can be helpful for developers or site administrators that need to get plugin information quickly.
