The FieldBuilder or ConnectionBuilder instance was created using the Field, Connection or ConnectionBuilder.Create method overload that doesn't require a name argument, with the name being supplied through the Name method.

Rule description

The name should be provided in the Field, Connection or ConnectionBuilder.Create method. Method overloads without the name argument are obsolete and will be removed in future version.

How to fix violations

Use the Field, Connection or ConnectionBuilder.Create method overload that takes the name argument and remove the call to the Name method.

Example of a violation

ConnectionBuilder.Create<StringGraphType, string>().Name("Name");

Example of how to fix

ConnectionBuilder.Create<StringGraphType, string>("Name");

Suppress a warning

If you just want to suppress a single violation, add preprocessor directives to your source file to disable and then re-enable the rule.

#pragma warning disable GQL001
// The code that's violating the rule is on this line.
#pragma warning restore GQL001

To disable the rule for a file, folder, or project, set its severity to none in the configuration file.

dotnet_diagnostic.GQL001.severity = none
