How to apply different schema based on type in a GROQ query for nested references

Last updated: Jun 9, 2023
Hi. I am having trouble expanding nested references.I have a sections array that can take different types of objects, the objects can have nested fields that are references.
I am trying to write a GROQ query where each section type will have different fields. However, this changes the order of the sections.
Ideally I want to map over each section in the array, and apply a different schema based on the type.

Does anyone know how to achieve this?


        "sections": [
            ...sections[@._type == 'productList']{
                ...
            },
            ...sections[@._type == 'hero']{
                ...
            }
        ]

If I’m understanding what you’re after correctly, this is what you want:
sections": [
            _type == 'productList' => {
                ...
            },
            _type == 'hero' => {
                ...
            }
        ]
