Any chance someone could take a look at this please?
We’re having production issues due to
unpublished data coming through Sanity’s API.
I know y’all are busy, but it’s been hours…

I don’t understand the relation between the screenshot and what seems to be the issue. If you’re using a token, you’ll get drafts back from a fetch, so you’d need to include
&& !(_id in path("drafts.**"))
in your filter.

I just thought that something that was “deleted”, and then somehow “came back”, might have caused the unpublished content to come back from the API…
Wasn’t aware that drafts came back w/ queries.. what do you mean, “using a token”?

is there anyway to get the published status of pieces of content in that response so we can just filter them out?
May 26, 2022, 6:56 PM
Ah.. so if I don’t send the auth token, then those draft items are filtered out.
Got it.

await sanity.fetch(`*[_type == "place" && !(_id in path("drafts.**"))]`)
This will filter out all the drafts, you should only get published results

To your original question “Which I wasn’t expecting due to the fact that it’s “unpublished”. Is the API supposed to be returning _un_published content??”
The answer is yes, it will show whatever you have asked of, which by default is drafts as well as published documents. You would need to explicitly query for everything “without drafts” as User showed above.
