GROQ Query - Can I Get Draft Version of a Document Referenced by the Parent Document?

Last updated: Jul 28, 2022
Hello all. Need some help in knowing if this is practically allowed in GROQ query.Can I get the draft version of the document (if present, else published) referenced by the parent document with id
xxxx (and not
drafts.xxxx
). So if parent document is referencing
xxxx
, can I show the draft document drafts.xxxx if it exists even though the direct reference of the draft is not added in parent?I tried using match, coalesce but do not seem to get the expected result.

Something like this should work… interestingly it’s matching against docs with the same
_rev
attribute

*[_type == "user" && _id == "5766c34-8b0f-db36-67ef-7a0df57770c8"]
{
  ...,
  posts[]->{
    ...,
    "hasDraft": *[_type == "post" && _id in path("drafts.**")]
  }
}

Thanks
user J
for the response. Turns out I was able to get what I was looking for from below GROQ -
*[_type == "user"]
{
  ...,
  'posts': *[_type == 'post' && (_id in (^.posts[]._ref )|| _id in ^.posts[]{ '_ref': 'drafts.'+_ref }._ref )]
}

This gives both versions (draft & published) of the referenced document which can be fed into a system which can determine which version to pick. Thanks for the lead.🤘 Regarding the
_rev
, I think that was my bad in preparing the mock scenario data.
