My nodes have an "articleType" property, which is a select field with ~10 options ("article|Article", "training|Web based training" etc).

Fetching the property via GraphQL (8.x-3.1) works, but this gives me the key of the selected option (training):

    results {
      ...on NodeArticle {

I would like to retrieve the label of the selected option (Web based training). How can I do that?

I solved it by adding a new GraphQL field:


namespace Drupal\mymodule\Plugin\GraphQL\Fields;

use Drupal\graphql\GraphQL\Execution\ResolveContext;
use Drupal\graphql\Plugin\GraphQL\Fields\FieldPluginBase;
use Drupal\node\Entity\Node;
use GraphQL\Type\Definition\ResolveInfo;

 * Returns the label for the "article type" field
 * Example: "Themendossier" label instead of "dossier" key.
 * @GraphQLField(
 *   id = "article_type_label",
 *   type = "String",
 *   name = "articleTypeLabel",
 *   nullable = true,
 *   multi = false,
 *   parents = {"NodeArticle"}
 * )
class ArticleTypeLabel extends FieldPluginBase {

   * {@inheritdoc}
  public function resolveValues(Node $value, array $args, ResolveContext $context, ResolveInfo $info) {
    $options = $value->field_article_type->getFieldDefinition()->getFieldStorageDefinition()

    yield $options[$value->field_article_type->value];
