Hi,Can someone please explain why this filter
'_type == "person" && membership.office !=  null
works in a query inside vision but not inside
.filter('_type == "person" && membership.office != null)
in deskStrusture.js?

Hi User. Can you confirm the GROQ versions you’re using in Vision and your desk structure? Is
an array?

Hi User,"@sanity/vision": "^2.34.0",

Not sure where to find deskStructure version

membership is an object that contains



title: 'Office',

type: 'string',




{value:'Commodore', title:'Commodore'},

{value:'Treasurer', title:'Treasurer'},

{value:'Secretary', title:'Secretary'},

{value:'Hire Manager', title:'Hire Manager'}

What do you see in Vision at the top?
Sep 30, 2022, 3:17 AM
Of course, sorry yes thats the version

Perfect, thank you. Can you explain what it means that the filter “works” in one case but not the other?

In vision I get the expected result. ie. an array of 4 members, each of which holds one of the offices.In the studio deskStructure I have the following code

.filter('_type == "person" && membership.office !=  null')

but the result is a full list of 'person's..

So you’re getting documents where
is null?

Just in case it’s an API version issue: after the filter line, can you add:

So,... Update my api version in Sanity?

Great! Yes, it looks like you may need to specify your API version in your desk structure when you encounter this mismatch.
