Slug Generating Document Action - How to Invalidate Fields or Display an Error

14 replies
Last updated: Mar 13, 2021
I am improving my
generating document action, which replaces the default publish action. Can someone help me understand what my options are for invalidating fields or displaying an error, and then aborting a publish from within my custom publish action? Is there a place in the documentation where I may have missed this? Thanks!

Does this help? looks like validation isn't very feature rich at the moment. There is a validateDocument function in sanity if you search GitHub though.

, I don't think that helps, unfortunately.
I am trying to ensure that the slug I am setting will be unique and I am doing that within the publish action. I would expect there to be a way to "cancel" or "abort" the publish action.

So your slug has a unique validation on it and when you patch it the document still gets saved?

in my document action, I can choose to publish the document or not. I'm choosing not to, when the slug is not unique. It is at that point that I'd like to send a message to the UI stating why the document cannot be published.

If you throw an error does it appear in a red box near the publish button? somehow the intl-input plugin does it when the doc references another one like that.

This enforced document linking and shows an error after the attempted action

I will look into that plugin, if I throw an error I see it in the console but not in a popup of any kind.

Ah ok. Wonder if you need to push to the toast module in sanity?

Ill try it out myself on Monday as I'm interested now.

hmmm. I like the idea of using a toast. I just don't know how to get access to the
object to push a new message to. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the docs.

Should be able to use the hook and call it.

Got it, thanks again

import {useToast} from '@sanity/ui'

const toast = useToast()

toast.push({status:'error', title: error})
