Create a RESTified Endpoint


There are two methods to create a RESTified endpoint in Hasura Cloud and EE.

Data source availability

Available for Postgres, MS SQL Server, Citus, AlloyDB and CockroachDB databases.


This quickstart/recipe is dependent upon the docs e-commerce sample app. If you haven't already deployed the sample app, you can do so with one click below. If you've already deployed the sample app, simply use your existing project.

Deploy to Hasura Cloud

Option 1 - Create RESTified endpoints from table

With a few clicks and no custom code, you can create default CRUD style REST endpoints from your tables.

To create a RESTified endpoint on a table, check out our Quickstart guide here.

Option 2 - Create custom RESTified endpoints from GraphiQL

Step 1: Write a query

In the GraphiQL interface in the API tab of the Hasura Console, create a query:

Query Variables
Request Headers
Documentation Explorer
No Schema Available

After entering the query, click the REST button in the Explorer to configure your endpoint:

Create RESTified Endpoint

Step 2: Configure the endpoint

Enter a name, eg:


Followed by a brief description if you wish:

Retrieve a single product using its id

Next, we'll provide a route that describes the endpoint's purpose and indicates that we wish to accept a query parameter of id for the product:


We'll mark GET as the allowed method and finish creating the endpoint by clicking Create.

Step 3: Test the endpoint

To test this endpoint, run the following curl request in your terminal:

curl --location --request GET 'https://<your-hasura-project>/api/rest/product/7992fdfa-65b5-11ed-8612-6a8b11ef7372' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'x-hasura-admin-secret: <your-admin-secret>'

You should see a response similar to this:

"products_by_pk": {
"id": "7992fdfa-65b5-11ed-8612-6a8b11ef7372",
"name": "The Original Tee",
"description": "When you want to keep it simple"
