Discussion about reloading issue when clicking on mixed reference links in Sanity Studio

13 replies
Last updated: Apr 27, 2021
Here's something I just noticed (still on v.2.8.1): when clicking on ๐Ÿ”— from an array field consisting of multiple (mixed) reference types, the whole studio app is being reloaded completely (Connecting to Sanity ...) whereas clicking on such a link from non-mixed references the app goes there gracefully as expected. The link icon is shown differently too: it's smaller for the directly linked references.

It appears that the untyped links perform a lookup of the type (mapping the _id to the correct _type), then perform a redirect to the edit page. Because it fully reloads the app, it feels a bit abrupt.

There was a regression where it was temporarily possible to reference draft documents, which would give these link issues. Could you try upgrading to the latest version of the studio and check if any refs to drafts exist? If so, it'd be good to correct them.

I don't think this is it, I am not referencing any drafts.

Could you share how you've implemented the mixed reference field? Also, is it using any custom components?

The link href is:
/intent/edit/id=89f42315-a5f8-4e58-83cc-c9f24c0386d7/
- compared to
/intent/edit/id=7c191231-3dae-4c88-8126-24f696f85437;type=propertyType/
for non-mixed (and honestly, non-array type). As you can see, the type is already set here.

That's correct - intent links need a type indeed, so that would explain the reloading at least ๐Ÿ™‚ I've seen the same behaviour on a project that was on a lower version, where it disappeared after an upgrade. Did you try upgrading to
v2.9.1
to see if it resolves the issue?

I will try to upgrade now

that worked! I should have upgraded sooner, but I thought to hold off seeing some other regressions popping up here.

Even the ๐Ÿ”— icons are nice and consistent now! Thanks!

Apologies for the regression - we had an unforeseen issue with the search update that we had to revert as a result. We're working on a fix, but the latest version is stable as far as I've seen ๐Ÿ™‚
Indeed they are! The components team migrated reference inputs to Sanity UI
