# GraphQL Docs (via introspection)

Altair fetches the docs of all endpoints and fields offered by your GraphQL server (via introspection (opens new window)) and provides a rich interface to conveniently search through these and gain instant insight into the structure of the API. This also allows Altair provide several other rich features to you.

NOTE: You may not want to allow introspection queries for your server in production, and enable it only in development. This would mean Altair would have several features disabled because of that but it is better from a security standpoint. Here is a nice article (opens new window) around why.
