How to render a Creation Form with a graphql data provider

I'm trying to render an inferenced creation form for the resource users but i get an error (i'm using graphql data provider) As I can see, refine is trying to make a graphql request without any subselection of fields. What it's trying to do with that request? Do i need to configure meta props for the creation inferencer ?

Hi @kraloz. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Yes, you're correct. When using the Inferencer with GraphQL backends in refine, you need to define meta values for your resources and methods in a single prop. The Inferencer uses these values when generating the code and inferring the fields. Here's an example of how you can use the meta prop to select some columns with the Inferencer:
<AntdListInferencer
meta={{
users: {
getList: {
fields: [
"id",
"username",
"email",
"created_at",
],
},
},
}}
/>
<AntdListInferencer
meta={{
users: {
getList: {
fields: [
"id",
"username",
"email",
"created_at",
],
},
},
}}
/>
In this example, the meta prop is used to specify the fields to be selected from the users resource. For the users resource, the getList method will select the id, username, email, and created_at fields. You can find more information about this in the Inferencer documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/inferencer/#usage-with-graphql-backends-and-meta-values) and the GraphQL data provider documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/data-providers/graphql/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

how that affects the creation form for that resource? in the example you're showing configuration for the getList option @kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- The meta prop in the Inferencer component is used to customize the GraphQL query by defining values for your resources and methods. While the example I provided was for the getList method, you can also define meta values for other methods like create. However, the create method typically doesn't require field subselections as it's used for creating new records. The fields you need to provide are usually determined by the input form in your application, not by the create method itself. If you're getting an error when trying to render a creation form, it might be due to other reasons. Make sure your form fields match the expected input types of your GraphQL mutation for creating a user. If you're using an inferenced creation form, refine will automatically generate the form fields based on your GraphQL schema. If there's a mismatch between your schema and the actual data requirements, you might need to customize the form fields. For more information, you can refer to the useForm documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mantine/hooks/form/useForm/) and the Inferencer documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/inferencer/#usage-with-graphql-backends-and-meta-values). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

What method do refine inferencer uses when rendering a creation inferenfer form? @kapa.ai
<MantineInferencer
meta={{
[resourceNameOrIdentifier: string]: {
[methodName: "default" | "getList" | "getMany" | "getOne" | "update"]: Record<string, unknown>,
}
}}
/>
<MantineInferencer
meta={{
[resourceNameOrIdentifier: string]: {
[methodName: "default" | "getList" | "getMany" | "getOne" | "update"]: Record<string, unknown>,
}
}}
/>

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- When rendering a creation form, the refine Inferencer uses the create method. However, in the provided code snippet, the create method is not explicitly mentioned in the meta prop. The meta prop is used to customize the GraphQL query by defining values for your resources and methods. The keys in the meta object should correspond to the names of your resources and the methods you want to customize. Here's an example of how you might use the meta prop to customize the create method for a users resource:
<MantineInferencer
meta={{
users: {
create: {
// Your custom values here
},
},
}}
/>
<MantineInferencer
meta={{
users: {
create: {
// Your custom values here
},
},
}}
/>
In this example, the meta prop is used to specify custom values for the create method of the users resource. You would replace // Your custom values here with the actual values you want to use. For more information, you can refer to the Inferencer documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/inferencer/#usage-with-graphql-backends-and-meta-values). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai The create option is not a valid option in the InferencerComponentProps meta options

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- I apologize for the confusion. You're correct, the create method is not a valid option in the meta prop of the Inferencer component. The valid methods are default, getList, getMany, getOne, and update. The Inferencer component in refine is used to generate views and codes based on the data structure of the resource. It fetches the data using the dataProvider of the <Refine/> component and infers the data structure from the data returned by the dataProvider. When rendering a creation form, the Inferencer doesn't need to infer fields from the create method because the form fields are determined by the user input, not by the data returned by the create method. If you're having issues with rendering a creation form, it might be due to other reasons. Please ensure that your form fields match the expected input types of your GraphQL mutation for creating a user. For more information, you can refer to the Inferencer documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/inferencer/#usage-with-graphql-backends-and-meta-values). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

BS I found a workaround using the "default" option inside the meta option @kapa.ai
kapa.ai
kapa.ai7mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- That's great! The default option in the meta prop of the Inferencer component is used as the default meta value for all the methods. If a specific meta value for a method for a resource is not provided, the default value will be used. Here's an example of how you can use the default option:
<MantineInferencer
meta={{
users: {{
default: {{
// Your custom values here
}},
}},
}}
/>
<MantineInferencer
meta={{
users: {{
default: {{
// Your custom values here
}},
}},
}}
/>
In this example, the meta prop is used to specify default values for all methods of the users resource. You would replace // Your custom values here with the actual values you want to use. For more information, you can refer to the Inferencer documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/inferencer/#usage-with-graphql-backends-and-meta-values). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
