4 replies
Last updated: Aug 16, 2022
hi all! working on a dataset import right now and trying to figure out how to format my
ndjson
file to account for references.
this is part of the schema i’m importing into, specifically wondering how I should format for the
pressLinks
field

...
        {
            name: 'pressLinks',
            title: 'Selected Press',
            type: 'array',
            of: [{ type: 'pressLinks' }],
            group: 'press',
        },
...

Hey
user E
! Are presslinks objects or references?
Aug 16, 2022, 6:30 PM
they are objects, here is the schema

export default {
    name: 'pressLinks',
    title: 'Press Links',
    type: 'object',
    fields: [
        {
            name: 'title',
            title: 'Press Outlet Name',
            type: 'string',
        }, {
            name: 'url',
            title: 'Press Link URL',
            type: 'url',
        }
    ],
}

Got it! I wasn't sure because of this:
trying to figure out how to format my
ndjson
file to account for references.
For presslinks, they would need to be in this format.
{
 //...other fields
  pressLinks: [
    {
       _type: 'pressLink',
       title: <your-title>,
       url: <your-url
    },
    //...other pressLinks
  ]
}
