Applying a filter to the desk structure to directly edit an active schema remotely.

Last updated: Mar 11, 2024
trying to apply a filter somewhere in desk structure that's not in a documentList? with hopes of directly editing an active schema remotely:
  const homePage = S.listItem()
    .title('Active Home Page')
    .schemaType('siteHomepage')
    .child(
      S.editor()
        .schemaType('siteHomepage')
        .filter('_id == "globalConfig" && defined(homePage) && !(_id in path("drafts.**"))')
        .title('Active Home Page')
        
I know how to get it to work filtering into a
list view
but i want to remove an extra click here and not really seeing a way to do it, vs with a global config i can select the documentId() and jump directly into that singleton

You can’t filter like that, but you could pass the
child
method an async function where you query for the document. Something like:
  const homePage = .listItem()
        .title('Active Home Page')
        .child(async (value, { structureContext: { getClient } }) => {
          const client = getClient({ apiVersion: '2024-03-01' });
          const { _id, title } = await client.fetch(`
            [_id == "globalConfig" 
            && defined(homePage) 
            && !(_id in path("drafts.**"))][0]{ 
                _id, 
                title 
            }`);

          return S.editor().schemaType('siteHomepage').id(_id).title(title);
        }),

What did the final solution for this look like. Sorta banging around on the same problem. For a 1 click to editing a single document from the main list, that doesn't have a static ID and was generated, displaying and editing that document directly with 1 click is way more painful than it should be I feel.

  const homePage = S.listItem()
    .title('Active Home Page')
    .schemaType('siteHomepage')
    .child(async (value, { structureContext: { getClient } }) => {
      const client = getClient({ apiVersion: '2024-03-01' });
      const sanityQuery = await client.fetch(`
        *[_type == "globalConfig"][0]{ 
          ...,
            homePage->{
              _id,
              displayTitle
            }
        }`);
      return S.editor().schemaType('siteHomepage').id(sanityQuery?.homePage?._id).title(sanityQuery?.homePage?.displayTitle)
    })

for additional context i set a homepage in a global setting and that's what i am referencing in the async function
