    title: apollo-link-error description: Handle and inspect errors in your GraphQL network stack.

    Use this link to do some custom logic when a GraphQL or network error happens:

    import { onError } from "apollo-link-error";
    const link = onError(({ graphQLErrors, networkError }) => {
      if (graphQLErrors){ message, locations, path }) =>
            `[GraphQL error]: Message: ${message}, Location: ${locations}, Path: ${path}`
      if (networkError) console.log(`[Network error]: ${networkError}`);

    Apollo Link is a system of modular components for GraphQL networking. Read the docs to learn how to use this link with libraries like Apollo Client and graphql-tools, or as a standalone client.


    Error Link takes a function that is called in the event of an error. This function is called with an object containing the following keys:

    • operation: The Operation that errored
    • response: The result returned from lower down in the link chain
    • graphQLErrors: An array of errors from the GraphQL endpoint
    • networkError: Any error during the link execution or server response, that wasn't delivered as part of the errors field in the GraphQL result

    Error categorization

    An error is passed as a networkError if a link further down the chain called the error callback on the observable. In most cases, graphQLErrors is the errors field of the result from the last next call.

    A networkError can contain additional fields, such as a GraphQL object in the case of a failing HTTP status code from apollo-link-http. In this situation, graphQLErrors is an alias for networkError.result.errors if the property exists.

    Ignoring errors

    If you want to conditionally ignore errors, you can set response.errors = null; within the error handler:

    onError(({ response, operation }) => {
      if (operation.operationName === "IgnoreErrorsQuery") {
        response.errors = null;
