In my example, I’ll be using Kong Konnect Enterprise Version 2.4, but the version number does not really matter. I also configured my workspace with one service that points to a Star Wars API endpoint with a GraphQL interface (swapi-graphql.netlify.com).
We’ll also be using an open source tool called GraphiQL for interactive documentation of a GraphQL endpoint. With GraphiQL, we’ll see requests, responses and automated generation of documentation based on the endpoint.
