Troubleshooting warning for documents not declared in GraphQL schema during Gatsby build

Last updated: Apr 28, 2020
I see the following warning for 3 documents during `gatsby build`:
[sanity] Document "fbca6239-40f3-4c6b-b197-224106c7fb38" has type position (SanityPosition), which is not declared in the GraphQL schema. Make sure you run "graphql deploy". Skipping document.
How do I find that document within Sanity?

Hi Chandler, if
is a document type you have recently created but not yet deployed, try running
sanity graphql deploy
. If it’s a leftover from the past, I guess you could either delete these documents via the CLI (
sanity documents delete <doc-id>
) or create a new
document type just so you can review the past items and then remove as necessary.

ah, thanks. I think deleting them works fine.

I’ve run the
graphql deploy
several times so I think the delete command is what I need.

If you don’t have a document type called
in your schema at the moment, the deploy command will not resolve the issue in this case, which is what might be going on. These seem to be former documents added when there was still a
doc type.

That makes sense

I think these were leftovers from our initial setup or from following a tutorial of some sort.

(You can still view them if you re-create that type, in case there’s information in there you might need.)

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ already deleted them
