yea I had tried that with the initial values template too 😅 but noticed it was striping it

I also tried a custom action that just patched the _id, but apparently that’s immutable so that’s a no-go as well

not sure exactly how to mimic the above with a create intent though 🤔

I'm not sure, either. It would take some playing around on my part to be able to give better direction 😅 . I'm also not sure if the path being stripped is intended functionality, so I'm asking around with the Studio team.
One thing that occurs to me it that I
believe that the Document Internationalization plugin uses subpaths in the ids it creates . It might be worth it to dig around in there and see how they're doing it.

lovely! yea let me know about the stripping of the sub-path, I’ll look into this plugin’s imlementation in the meantime 🙂

little update! It looks like the internationalization plugin uses the HTTP API to create duplicate documents with the desired ID and then deletes the original. I can replicate this in a custom document action, that basically creates a new document with the desired ID and then deletes the current one. It’s not the prettiest, since it requires a two step process, so if you find anything out about how to do this more naturally within the studio that would be so rad! 🙏

Ah! That's SO COOL! Definitely recommend publishing this to the exchange.
Still haven't heard back re: intended functionality in the Studio, but I'll share this and follow up!
