Hello Sanity people đź‘‹
Does anyone know if it’s possible to validate a field based on another field’s value in custom validation?

I have attempted it below but it doesn’t seem to work…

      title: 'Has date end?',
      name: 'has_date_end',
      type: 'boolean',
      fieldset: 'dates',
      name: 'date_end',
      type: 'date',
      fieldset: 'dates',
      validation: Rule => Rule.custom(() => {
        return Rule.valueOfField('has_date_end')
          ? true
          : 'Please check "Has date end?" field'

Yes its possible. Check out this article:
What might be helpful is passing in the
as the second param - then you can check any fields in your document.
If your using
validation I dont think you can use the
but im not too sure on that one.

Something along these lines for custom:
  name: 'durationInMinutes',
  type: 'number',
  title: 'Duration of talk, in minutes',
  validation: Rule => Rule.custom((duration, context) => {
    const isShortTalk = duration && duration <= 10
    if (isShortTalk && context.document.talkType !== 'lightning') {
      return 'Only lightning talks should be 10 minutes or less'
    return true
