Setting up document access and user tracking in Sanity Studio V3

6 replies
Last updated: Feb 27, 2023
I would like to set up a project to allow editors into Sanity Studio to create documents. However, I’d like to scope the documents they have access to, as well as save which user created the document. I have seen snippets online, but none work for me.
I’ve seen things like `

import userStore from 'part:@sanity/base/user'
but I get errors, such as
Failed to resolve import "part:@sanity/base/user

I’d like to set the value of the user as an initialValue in the document schema.

Yes, seeing that now. For instance, how would I hide the “Vision” plugin for non-admin? Would I have to get currentUser in sanity.config.js and not load the vision plugin?
