Given a repository $repoOwner/$repoName, find the id of an issue by its $number.

Usually users think of "issue #10", but most GitHub GraphQL mutations refer to issues by their id, so you'll find this query quite helpful! For example, you'll need the issue id if you want to Delete a GitHub issue.

To find the id of issue #3 on the OneGraph GraphQL Docs Repository, we could pass in the following variables:

  "repoName": "graphql-docs",
  "repoOwner": "OneGraph",
  "number": 3
query GitHubFindIssueIdByNumber( $repoOwner: String! $repoName: String! $number: Int! ) { gitHub { repository(owner: $repoOwner, name: $repoName) { issue(number: $number) { id title } } } }
Types used in this example

No description


The String scalar type represents textual data, represented as UTF-8 character sequences. The String type is most often used by GraphQL to represent free-form human-readable text.


The Int scalar type represents non-fractional signed whole numeric values. Int can represent values between -(2^31) and 2^31 - 1.


The query root of GitHub's GraphQL interface.


A repository contains the content for a project.


An Issue is a place to discuss ideas, enhancements, tasks, and bugs for a project.


The ID scalar type represents a unique identifier, often used to refetch an object or as key for a cache. The ID type appears in a JSON response as a String; however, it is not intended to be human-readable. When expected as an input type, any string (such as "4") or integer (such as 4) input value will be accepted as an ID.
