Adding GQL schema with lang support


Following instructions here:

My Dgraph schema has the following predicate:
label: string @index(term, fulltext) @lang .

I’m getting an error when I try to add the following GraphQL schema:

type Synonym @key(fields: id) {
    id: ID!
    label: String @search(by: [term, fulltext]) @dgraph(pred: "label@en")

$ curl -X POST --data-binary @schema.graphql
{"errors":[{"message":"Schema is valid","extensions":{"code":"success"}}]}

$ curl -X POST --data-binary @schema.graphql
{"errors":[{"message":"resolving updateGQLSchema failed because line 2 column 7: Missing colon in type declaration. Got @ (Locations: [{Line: 3, Column: 4}])","extensions":{"code":"Error"}}]}

If i take out the @en from the GraphQL schema, it saves correctly however queries return null for field label because triple objects literals are language specific
