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
). So if parent document is referencing
, 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

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

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 )]

, I think that was my bad in preparing the mock scenario data.
