GraphQL R/python "query" missing

Hi Folks,

It looks like both the R and python graphQL examples are not working right now. They return a code 400 and the message “Missing parameter: query”. I’ve been able to run these and other more complex queries in the past. Are others running into this same problem? Any idea what might be happening?

Hello @Sean_Hackett!

Thank you for joining the Open Targets Community!

Earlier this week, we updated our API endpoint URL to use https and so the new endpoint is:

I have updated our GraphQL API documentation and the sample Python and R scripts to reflect the new API URL. Please try again and let us know if you encounter any more difficulties.

Also, check out our BigQuery instance (open-targets-prod) if you’re interested in running more complex, systematic data queries.

Thanks Andrew, everything is copacetic now : ) I’ve really enjoyed working with GraphQL API so far! I’ll check out BigQuery once I have a better idea of what I’m looking for.
