This looks like it’s coming from where you’ve configured your client on your front end, rather than from within the Studio code. Can you please post the code snippet where you’ve instantiated your client? Something like:

import { createClient } from '@sanity/client';

export const client = createClient({
  projectId: 'abcd1234',
  dataset: 'production',
  apiVersion: '2023-06-10',
  useCdn: true,

Hi User, thank you for offering your help. I'm currently new to Sanity and I'm working on building an E-Commerce app with Sanity and Next.js. I followed the steps to install the Next.js npm package first and then created the project from the web of sanity. Then, I installed the npm package for Sanity that was provided after creating the project.
Since I'm new to Sanity, I'm a bit confused about the code snippet you mentioned. I'm not sure where exactly I need to instantiate the client as you described. Could you please provide more guidance or clarification on how to integrate Sanity into my application and create the client?

Thank you for your assistance, I really appreciate it!

Welcome to the community!
In your Next.js code, you will use the Sanity Client to pull in your content from the Content Lake (essentially the Sanity data store). That client will need to be configured with your projectId, dataset, etc., so that it knows where to source from.

Is there a particular guide or tutorial you’re following? I can take a look and find where the client is configured.

Thank you User for helping, I will check out Content Lake.

Looks like they start that setup at around the 40:36 mark . You’ll now import
{ createClient } from '@sanity/client';
and will use that function in place of
, but the config looks to be the same. Make sure you’re specifying `projectId`—case matters.
