Hi there,I’m trying to embed the sanity studio into my new astro site.
I’ve followed along with this
documentation , but keep getting a 404 error.
I have the studio installed in a ‘admin’ folder in the root folder of my astro project.
Is there an issue with my astro config?

import { defineConfig } from 'astro/config';
import tailwind from '@astrojs/tailwind';
import svelte from '@astrojs/svelte';
import sanity from 'astro-sanity';
import react from '@astrojs/react';

import netlify from "@astrojs/netlify/functions";

// <>
export default defineConfig({
  output: 'hybrid',
  integrations: [tailwind(), svelte(), sanity({
    projectId: '<actualProjectID>',
    dataset: 'production',
    useCdn: false,
    studioBasePath: '/admin'
  }), react()],
  adapter: netlify()

Looks right to me. Did you also add the
file? Do you have the code on GitHub by any chance?

Yes, it’s sitting under /admin

import {defineConfig} from 'sanity'
import {deskTool} from 'sanity/desk'
import {visionTool} from '@sanity/vision'
import {schemaTypes} from './schemas'

export default defineConfig({
  name: '<actualProjectName>',
  title: '<actualProjectTitle>',

  projectId: '<actualProjectID>',
  dataset: 'production',

  plugins: [deskTool(), visionTool()],

  schema: {
    types: schemaTypes,

No repo currently, but I can get one up if need be.

I should be able to run the studio at /admin while in dev as well right?
Or is the embed just for production when I have the site up on Netlify?

Ah – try to remove the
folder and put the
file in root (alongside

that’s not clear perhaps

Hmm, moved the file to the root (alongside
) and installed the file’s dependencies in the root as well.
Where should I be storing the studio specific files then?

Anywhere you want, except in the
folder 🙂

(I guess we could move the
into the
folder, and so on)

Thank you for linking this.It’s a completely fresh project, so I just started over with this template and all is working now.

So I'm having similar issues with deployment now.The studio just 404s in production, even though I have enabled CORs for the origin.

My astro config:

import { defineConfig } from 'astro/config';

// Loading environment variables from .env files
// <>
import { loadEnv } from 'vite';
  loadEnv(import.meta.env.MODE, process.cwd(), '');

import sanity from '@sanity/astro';
import react from '@astrojs/react';
import netlify from '@astrojs/netlify/functions';
import tailwind from '@astrojs/tailwind';

// <>
export default defineConfig({
  output: 'hybrid',
  adapter: netlify(),
  integrations: [
      studioBasePath: '/admin',
      useCdn: false,
      // `false` if you want to ensure fresh data
      apiVersion: '2023-03-20',

If it only happens in production, are you sure that your build has access to your environment variables?

The site itself is working, just not the studio.
The only variables I've configured are the project ID and dataset.

Hello! I just encountered the problem.
I found something interesting that might help you
user N
, it worked for me.
It should work if you go to yoururl/admin/desk.

I noticed in the dist/_redirects file that redirection for admin path was "/admin/*"
