I am using magetno 2.3.x and I want to access my account queries provided by Magento_CustomerGraphQl module.

I have installed ChromeiQl to execute GraphQl. I set Site Endpoint as per syntax provided by magento devdocs.

I have generated the customer token using provided type Mutation

type Mutation {
    generateCustomerToken(email: String!, password: String!)

But I did not get any way to use this token in ChromiQL as authorization Header.

Please try this:

Step 1: Get a bearer token: You can get a token by executing the signup mutation in the playground to create a new user. This is the signup mutation I ran:


mutation {
      generateCustomerToken(email: "[email protected]", password: "password") {


  "data": {
     "generateCustomerToken": {
     "token": "hoyz7k697ubsdsdfsdfsdfsdfv5hcpq92yrtx39i7x"

Step 2: Include the bearer token in your request

Notice there is a text area called HTTP HEADERS at the bottom of the playground. Paste the following code into HTTP HEADERS, replacing your-token-goes-here with the bearer token returned by the server in step 1:

   "Authorization": "Bearer zcnj8wd03u19s5fw1yvkprs23du7tfkh"

Step 3: Run the post mutation Now that you are including a bearer token in your request you can run the post mutation.

Please check and let me know if you are able to get the response.

  • Is it required to add a Bearer token for returning the response?

The resulting token should be used in subsequent requests in the Authorization header as a Bearer token ex:
Authorization: Bearer {{resultFromGenerateCustomerToken}}

I don't think ChromeQL allows the setting request Headers. If you are on OSX you can use this electron app which give you access to set the headers. https://github.com/skevy/graphiql-app

Additionally, the graphiql included in the PWA Studio includes the same functionality https://github.com/magento-research/pwa-studio

  • Thankyou for your response, you are right ChrmeQL does no provide setting for request header so I ended up with GraphiQLFeen. Commented Aug 8, 2019 at 5:24
  • @KapilDevSingh, If you use Altair (chrome extension) then it provides the feature to set request headers in it. I have used it already. Commented Aug 27, 2020 at 14:12
