any ideas why a in studio vision would follow the reference correctly while from the webapp, the reference doesn't get followed instead returns null?

Are you on the same dataset in vision and in your webapp?
Feb 26, 2023, 1:59 AM
Feb 26, 2023, 2:00 AM
Can you show me how you're trying to resolve the reference in your webapp?
Feb 26, 2023, 2:01 AM
you might be omitting
from the object chain

  *[_type == "home"][0]{
Feb 26, 2023, 2:02 AM
when i output the fetch() it just returns an array of null
Feb 26, 2023, 2:02 AM
So no documents are matching to
Feb 26, 2023, 2:03 AM
  _id: '2afb8db4-b79e-4056-b779-7b3f4c44fd98',
  footer: null,
  header: 'HEADER',
  name: null,
  overview: 'DESCRIPTION',
  showcaseExhibitions: [ null ],
  subheader: [
      _key: '072703d67f11',
      _type: 'block',
      children: [Array],
      markDefs: [],

if i get rid of the
it returns the reference object
Feb 26, 2023, 2:04 AM
Feb 26, 2023, 2:05 AM
no nvm that will jsut be the reference id
Feb 26, 2023, 2:05 AM
I think you're misusing the
there. Here's an example of how im using it
Feb 26, 2023, 2:06 AM
if its not pointing to something then it makes sense that you're getting null
Feb 26, 2023, 2:06 AM
but it works vision
Feb 26, 2023, 2:07 AM
and returns a result
Feb 26, 2023, 2:07 AM
vision uses GQL for queries no?
Feb 26, 2023, 2:07 AM
GROQ is different
Feb 26, 2023, 2:07 AM
don't think so..i paste in the same query into vision and it gives me the result i expect
Feb 26, 2023, 2:09 AM
that's odd. there must be some context vision has that the Sanity client doesnt
Feb 26, 2023, 2:10 AM
maybe try specifying the fields you want to pull from
Feb 26, 2023, 2:10 AM
yeah..i start being super specific and then pulled back
Feb 26, 2023, 2:11 AM
wonder if there's some web setting..or if there's a way to turn on debugging so that i can diagnose what URL it's trying to hit
Feb 26, 2023, 2:12 AM
you can check your network tab in the devtools on the webapp
Feb 26, 2023, 2:12 AM
and see where the request is heading
Feb 26, 2023, 2:12 AM
yeah unfortunately next.js is doing is server side
Feb 26, 2023, 2:15 AM
i guess try making the request from client side
Feb 26, 2023, 2:17 AM
ugh my head hurts..looks like it is using the right URL. And when i copy and paste the URL it actually is the correct data.
Feb 26, 2023, 2:31 AM
but it seems that after fetching it it is disregarding it? do you know if fetch() is actually looking at any types?
Feb 26, 2023, 2:33 AM
actually the same URL when copy and pasted into the browser returns a result..but from executed from the app it doesn't
Feb 26, 2023, 2:37 AM
one query is 9ms the other one is 14ms
Feb 26, 2023, 2:37 AM
very weird, sounds like a bug
Feb 26, 2023, 2:39 AM
wondering it's something to do with CORS
Feb 26, 2023, 2:42 AM
that would be the only thing that is different
Feb 26, 2023, 2:42 AM
If CORS were an issue would you not be getting an error in your console about it?
Feb 26, 2023, 2:43 AM
yeah that's valid..something is happening on the sanity level it seems
Feb 26, 2023, 2:44 AM
Oof thats annoying
Feb 26, 2023, 2:45 AM
you should open an issue on github
Feb 26, 2023, 2:45 AM in incognito mode i am getting the reference not being followed
Feb 26, 2023, 3:01 AM
so b/c i have logged in via's following them when i hit it directly
Feb 26, 2023, 3:01 AM
so its an auth issue?
Feb 26, 2023, 3:02 AM
so basically it seems like references don't get followed unless you are logged in? or use an auth token
Feb 26, 2023, 3:02 AM
yeah..will force a token in and see
Feb 26, 2023, 3:02 AM
i guess that makes sense
Feb 26, 2023, 3:02 AM
🤦‍♂️ yeah..when i force a token in it works..
Feb 26, 2023, 3:04 AM
i think this template i am using doesn't force the token unless in preview mode
Feb 26, 2023, 3:04 AM
well shit good job figuring it out!
Feb 26, 2023, 3:04 AM
ha..thanks for the suggestions and moral support
Feb 26, 2023, 3:09 AM
