Mmh, not really since JSON is static by definition. What is your use case? 🙂

you can’t set them there, but you can override them

https://www.sanity.io/docs/studio-environment-variables#cc239c4841f0
SANITY_STUDIO_API_PROJECT_ID - Sets the project ID for the current build. This overrides the sanity.json property api.projectId. This environment variable has higher precedence than any env configuration defined in sanity.json.

SANITY_STUDIO_API_DATASET - Sets the dataset for the current build. This overrides the sanity.json property api.dataset. This environment variable has higher precedence than any env configuration defined in sanity.json.

So I guess you could avoid setting them in
sanity.json
, and pass them as environment variables to your Studio if that works?

  "api": {
    "projectId": null

Great, thanks!
Use case is a wierd "multisite" thing where different datasets will be different sites
