Content Delivery API
Query batching
June 12th, 2018

We just enabled query batching support to our GraphQL Content Delivery API.

This means you can combine multiple GraphQL operations into a single HTTP request, reducing HTTP overheads. If you use Apollo Client, you can enable batch queries with the apollo-link-batch-http package:

import { ApolloClient } from 'apollo-client';
import { setContext } from 'apollo-link-context';
import { InMemoryCache } from 'apollo-cache-inmemory';
import { BatchHttpLink } from 'apollo-link-batch-http';
const httpLink = new BatchHttpLink({
uri: '',
const authLink = setContext((_, { headers }) => {
return {
headers: {
'Authorization': `Bearer ${process.env.DATO_API_TOKEN}`,
const client = new ApolloClient({
link: authLink.concat(httpLink),
cache: new InMemoryCache(),
export default client;
