# DESCRIBE EDGE¶

DESCRIBE EDGE returns the information about an edge type with the given name in a graph space, such as field names, data type, and so on.

## Prerequisites¶

Running the DESCRIBE EDGE statement requires some privileges for the graph space. Otherwise, NebulaGraph throws an error.

## Syntax¶

DESC[RIBE] EDGE <edge_type_name>


You can use DESC instead of DESCRIBE for short.

## Example¶

nebula> DESCRIBE EDGE follow;
+----------+---------+-------+---------+---------+
| Field    | Type    | Null  | Default | Comment |
+----------+---------+-------+---------+---------+
| "degree" | "int64" | "YES" |         |         |
+----------+---------+-------+---------+---------+
