Quick Start - AWS AppSync

Quick Start

This section describes how to use the AWS AppSync console to do the following:

  • Launch a sample event app schema

  • Automatically provision a DynamoDB data source and connect resolvers

  • Write GraphQL queries and mutations

  • Use the API in the sample app

AppSync provides a guided schema creation wizard that is recommended for first-time users who have never used GraphQL or AppSync before. Alternatively, you can import from an existing Amazon DynamoDB table to create a real-time and offline GraphQL API or build the entire backend with or without a pre-existing schema.

You can also get started with AWS AppSync by writing a GraphQL schema from scratch, which can automatically provision and connect to a database for you. For more information, see Designing Your Schema.
