Hi everyone! happy friday :party_parrot:
I'm trying to use
to fetch some data from the CMS but something's not working since I keep getting an empty array when executing
client.fetch("*[_type == 'document']")
(my dataset already has some documents created as I've tested in Vision) .
Does anybody know how to debug this? I've no clue on what's going on since there's no error but a response with an empty array; I'm setting up the client with the right
but I can't get any data 😢 I've changed the dataset to be public but still no luck

I would double check that the dataset is set to public – especially if it used to be private. This would be consistent with the behaviour. Also: do you have documents that are type
? What do you get for just

Expanding on Even's suggestion to check your document types, it might help to know that the
type: 'document'
in your schema definitions is not the
you query later. The
is the
you set in your schema definitions, e.g.
name: 'article'
. Sorry about the confusion there 🙂

; sorry for the late reply; I was able to solve the issue with Even suggestion. As Peter described I was retrieving with 'document' type; thanks for the help 🙌
