Securing Your GraphQL endpoint
Here are a few tips for securing your Slash GraphQL Backend
Writing Auth Rules
All GraphQL queries and mutations are unrestricted by default. In order to restrict access, please see the the @auth directive.
Restricting CORS from allowlisted domains
Restricting the origins that your Slash GraphQL responds to is a an important step in preventing XSS exploits. Your Slash GraphQL backend will prevent any origins that are not in the allowlist from accessing your GraphQL endpoint.
In order to add origins to the allow list, please see the settings page, under the CORS tab. By default, we allow all origins to connect to your endpoint (
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *), and adding an origin will prevent this default behavior. On adding your first origin, we automatically add
https://slash.dgraph.io as well, so that the API explorer continues to work.
