How to introspect the GraphQL API

Hello guys,

I'm integrating Prismic with some projects using NextJS + TypeScript and I wish I could generate the typeset based in my graphql schema or based on the introspection.

I tried by many ways to do that using tools such as Apollo Codegen, Prisma generator and also using Insomnia. However, all of them, can't read o introspect the API.

It's possible to access the schema or introspect it some way?

Here's the full detailed request and response of an attempt to introspect the GraphQL endpoint.
