GraphQL's introspection system is one of its key features, enabling much of the powerful tooling we use throughout the GraphQL ecosystem. However, currently the GraphQL specification doesn't give an official way to add custom metadata to schemas. From complex challenges such as federating schemas to simply indicating pagination limits, our needs for this metadata are growing. This talk will surface some of the use cases for schema metadata, look over some of the workarounds that are in use, and briefly explore some proposed solutions.
