Next.js - Fetching Object with `getStaticProps()` Returns an Empty Array

Last updated: Apr 27, 2022
Hi all, I'm a little stuck at the moment setting up a Next.js project. I've added content to a schema I've called Events, and when I publish posts and test them out w/ a Groq query, I can see the data, however when I fetch the data with
getStaticProps()
the object returns an empty array. The project is also set to public.
How should I begin to troubleshoot such an issue?

, as well as my

Hi Racheal! Do you mean the Sanity client? (still a little green to this, sorry lol)

I'm assuming this is what you meant, right?

Exactly! It's possible that your client isn't picking up your projectId, so it would be worth it to double check that. Also, is your dataset private?

One thing that might be causing this is that I had tried to swap the project over to another projectID (the previous one had since been archived). Both datasets (production & "expose-noir") are public though

however the ID in my .env.local matches the projectID from the current project I'm working on

I've also just noticed that when I click "production" from the dropdown here, I suddenly get no output from the groq query. Could this be why?

It may be because you're not specifying an API version in your client.

should I set that to today's date?
Apr 27, 2022, 3:15 PM
I just manually changed the dataset value to "expose-noir" and the content seems to be appearing as intended now

I'm assuming this will be an issue when I move over to production though, how can I ensure that the CMS posts that are created are on the production dataset?
Apr 27, 2022, 3:16 PM
Yep! Use today's date. If you're using different datasets you'll need to migrate your content to production.
