Why is GROQ Query Returning an Empty Set in my App but not in the Vision Plugin?

hi — can anyone think of why my GROQ query would be returning an empty set in my app but not in the Vision Plugin? My query is

Are they both using the same api version?

that’s a good question, how would I check this?

in Vision you select it at the top, in your client you specify it as an option, if not it defaults to v1 (I think).

It’ll be in your api request urls in your app (where you initiate the client if you’re using one https://github.com/sanity-io/client#api )
And in the vision plugin it should show near the top

Another thing is that perhaps one request happens authenticated, and the other un-authenticated, and that that influences drafts vs no drafts or something like that

okay thanks for the help! turns out I wasn’t explicitly stating the apiVersion and changing it to the one in Vision fixed the problem
