Well, I’ve been over this and over this researching, implementing and testing and I can’t seem to figure it out, so I’m asking for help. As best as I can figure, something I did disconnected my graphql for Gatsby from my Sanity when I was launching to Netlify. I’m just trying to reconnect them at this point, Before I tried to launch my GraphiQL showed the
kind of data, but now all the Sanity data is not connected. I was able to successfully launch my Sanity to Netlify, so it’s live at a custom domain. My
is set up with the correct projectId, dataset and token - I’ve triple checked and I have used
sanity graphql deploy
(more than once at this point) - the playground does contain all the data correctly too. I think that is all the relevant information. Does anyone have an idea of where I go from here?

Hey Eric! Maybe it's an issue with your
implementation? How do you have it configured?

Thanks for responding, Racheal. Here’s my
for this plugin:
  path: `.env`,

module.exports = {
  /* Your site config here */
  plugins: [
      resolve: 'gatsby-source-sanity',
      options: {
        projectId: process.env.SANITY_PROJECT_ID,
        dataset: process.env.SANITY_DATASET,
        apiVersion: '2021-09-01',
        watchMode: true,
        token: process.env.SANITY_TOKEN,

I’ve set up a basic environment with only the Gatsby v4 hello world starter,
and this is what I get when I run
gatsby develop

Missing onError handler for invocation 'building-schema', error was 'Error: Type with name "GatsbyImageLayout" does not exists'.
 Stacktrace was 'Error: Type with name "GatsbyImageLayout" does not exists

Ok, I figured out the issue with this last one in my test environment with Gatsby v4. I have it running and can access Sanity data through GraphiQL. I’m going to try to migrate my site files and see if I can get this launched to Netlify. I’ll update if I can…

This solution did work - I still don’t know why exactly it broke but it works now. Thank you for your help!
