if contact_person is a document you need:

...
type: "array",
of: [{ type: "reference", to: { type: "contact_person" } }],
May 15, 2020, 9:40 AM
It’s not, it’s just embedded in the document
May 15, 2020, 9:41 AM
Do I have to make contact_person in to a document?
May 15, 2020, 9:41 AM
At least everything works in the studio, but my query doesn’t return the contacts field as part of the main document.
May 15, 2020, 9:41 AM
what is a contact_person? 🙂
May 15, 2020, 9:41 AM
Object
May 15, 2020, 9:41 AM
export default {
  name: 'contact_person',
  type: 'object',
  title: 'Contact person',
  fields: [
    {
      name: 'name',
      title: 'Name',
      type: 'string'
    },
    {
      name: 'email',
      title: 'Email',
      type: 'string'
    },
    {
      name: 'field',
      title: 'Field of expertise',
      type: 'string'
    }
  ]
};

how does your query look?
May 15, 2020, 9:42 AM
export async function preload({ params, query }) {
    const noticeQuery = `*[_type == "notice"][0]`;
    const noticeProjection = `{
      ...,
      body[]{
        ...,
        children[]{
          ...,
          "asset": asset->
        }
      }
    }`;
    
    const notice = await client.fetch(noticeQuery + noticeProjection);

did you deploy to sanity after you created the object?
May 15, 2020, 9:44 AM
sanity deploy
May 15, 2020, 9:44 AM
I’m running the studio locally (and deployed)
May 15, 2020, 9:44 AM
deployed to Netlify. I’ll try to deploy again.
May 15, 2020, 9:44 AM
Is the field not returned on the front-end side or not even in the playground after running
sanity graphql deploy
?
May 15, 2020, 9:47 AM
I’ve never run
sanity graphql deploy
, I’m deploying our studio only to Netlify and running it locally.
May 15, 2020, 9:47 AM
Can you see the values if you inspect your document within the Studio?
May 15, 2020, 9:47 AM
I could, but for some reason the schema didn’t update after deploying, so the studio offered me to unset the
contacts
May 15, 2020, 9:48 AM
I see, so the deploy might not have happened successfully. Do you see any errors in your Netlify build log?
May 15, 2020, 9:49 AM
I’ll re-build and re-deploy. Locally running I can see the
contacts
field in the studio.
May 15, 2020, 9:49 AM
Re-deployed and now it’s there
May 15, 2020, 9:51 AM
However the query still return nothing!
May 15, 2020, 9:51 AM
const noticeQuery = `*[_type == "notice"][0]`;
    const noticeProjection = `{
      contacts,
      ...,
      body[]{
        ...,
        children[]{
          ...,
          "asset": asset->
        }
      }
    }`;
May 15, 2020, 9:51 AM
It is there when I inspect the data in studio. But not when I query the data.
May 15, 2020, 9:53 AM
What happens if you try without
contacts
and leave
...,
intact?
May 15, 2020, 9:54 AM
Also, are you sure it is there on the specific single
notice
document you are querying with
[0]
?

Still missing contacts. And there is only one document.

If you have the Vision plugin installed in your Studio, are you able to get the data there with the same query?

No, it’s not there with Vision
May 15, 2020, 9:59 AM
Only when I inspect the document

May 15, 2020, 9:53 AM
That’s strange. Is the document published?
May 15, 2020, 10:04 AM
Yes
May 15, 2020, 10:04 AM
Do you have any repo you could share? (in DM if you prefer) - or a zip of the schema files.
May 15, 2020, 10:04 AM
Wait a sec.
May 15, 2020, 10:04 AM
It’s a private github repo. Who can I add to it?
May 15, 2020, 10:05 AM
