I have an app with a Vue frontend and Absinthe handling Queries and Mutations.
I’d like the frontend to offer a [confirm email] link where the user clicks on it, and it then triggers an email to be sent to that user. I think this is a typical workflow.
User clicks on [Confirm Email] → VueJs sends a Graphql message → Absinthe Schema identifies Resolver → Resolver calls into Phoenix context → send_confirm_email(current_user) context function is called.
I’m using Graphql and I was assuming I would need to create an input_object with a field on it. Giving it more thought, there’s nothing I need to send with this message. The current user is saved on the backend so no need to send current_user.id or anything like that.
My questions are:
- Do I use a Query or a Mutation in GraphQL to trigger this confirm email workflow?
- If it is a mutation, how would I structure the
input_objectsince there’s no payload I’d need to send.
