Is it possible to make a schema field required? I have added
required: true
to a few fields but an API mutation seems to still pass through even when no values.

Normally, you would set validation according to the information in the document Jørn shared above. However, it’s noteworthy that validation is only done client-side within the Studio at this point. That means any API mutations are not validated according to the same rule and you would have to take care of validation yourself here. In the future it might be extended to work server-side as well.

OK thanks for the info!

That's a shame that would be a great addition! I'm not sure what percentage of your users work mainly in the studio and who are using mainly as an api?
