Cloudinary Plugin - How to Return a Normal Cloudinary URL

3 replies
Last updated: Mar 10, 2021
Hey, I'm using asset-source-cloudinary for images. Everything is working in the sense that my cloudinary is hooked up, but i'm not sure what i'm supposed to do with what is being returned. Instead of returning this _ref, how do I return a normal cloudinary url? Or, what am I supposed to do to turn this ref into a url?
What the cloudinary plugin returns:

{_type: "image", asset: {…}}
asset:
_ref: "image-812e134ac7073c8629430cf98b1bcddceaff595d-1366x266-jpg"
What i'm looking for to be returned:

{_type: "image", asset: {…}}
asset:
url: "cloudinary-asset-url-here.jpg"

Hi Andrew. You’ll want to add
->
after your left-hand reference. For example, if
asset
is returning
_ref
,
asset->
would return the referenced document. https://www.sanity.io/docs/groq-operators#dae298fc7952

You might even be able to put
image
directly into Sanity’s image-url helper .

Okay great thank you for the reply! Changing my query with
asset->
worked for finding the asset.
