Dynamic schema generation for changing data models

Every Contentful user has their own content model, which consists of varying content types. With no two users’ content models being the same, each user’s data model is used to generate a GraphQL schema that is tailored to them. This means we have a slightly different set of challenges compared to the average user when they use GraphQL or build GraphQL APIs. Dynamic schema generation works with the GraphQL API to generate GraphQL schemas that address different, changing models. In this article, you will learn more about this fresh approach and how it works to your benefit.
