In sanity studio how do you make a field required so that they cant leave it blank or make a default entry, eg the slug field is automatically generated using the title

! You can do this by adding a required validation rule to the field, here is an example:
      title: 'slug',
      name: 'slugName',
      type: 'slug',
      validation: (Rule) => Rule.required(),
Here is the documentation on validation for further context: Also, here is documentation for the slug field that provides the validation and options available specifically for slugs: I hope this helps!
