Trying to add Sanity to a Gatsby project. I'm getting an error that says "GraphQL API not deployed." However, I have deployed it. The repo is here: . Anyone know how I can get Sanity working on this project? It's been really frustrating to try and install Sanity, and it seems like it's taken way too long. It looks good and I want to use it, but so far...not so good.

Hey Kevin! Can you double check that your GraphQL API deployed properly by running

Here are the GraphQL endpoints deployed for this project:1. Dataset: production

Nice! For your first question, I’m not 100% certain what you mean by admin link, but you can log into a project through , as well as find the url for the deployed studio. If you’re invited as an admin on the project, you’ll show up as an admin in the studio. Let me know if I’m misunderstanding your question, though!As for the blog, did you use a starter to create this or did you build it from scratch? If you used a starter, it should be configured to fetch all of your blog posts out of the box. If not, you would have to query your Sanity content in order to get the data into your FE.

By admin link, I mean where do I go to login and create content, i.e. . I didn't use a starter, so I'll need to query it.

Got it. So, in order to create content (outside of running the studio on localhost using
sanity start
), you would need to run
sanity deploy
in the root of your studio folder. You’ll then be able to choose your
url. If the studio has already been deployed, you’ll find that url under the project’s name at .
