How to Make the Alt Text Required From the Asset Library

Last updated: Aug 31, 2021
Hello, I'm building my first project with Sanity and I have a question about the asset document fields. Is it possible to make the alt text required from the asset library? I would like to avoid duplicating the field in my image schema.

Thank you for the answer, i tried that but I can't change the sanity image asset schema to make the alt field required right ?

I guess you can, but its data will be stored to the image field’s document , and not the asset document if that makes sense.
  name: 'image',
  type: 'image',
  fields: [
      name: 'alt',
      type: 'string',
      validation: Rule => Rule.required()
