I have a page schema that contains a contentList schema which can render custom components such as banners, heading text, images, html, etc…

When assets are used in the schema of a nested component, I simply get an id back from the API. What’s the best technique for retrieving all asset data for a referenced asset? I would love to perform a single API call but it doesn’t appear possible. I know I can look up asset data using a second API call, but ultimately I’m looking to render images using some of the asset meta data. e.g. I am adding an “alt” meta key with language to use in the [value]

Do you have any suggestions on the best way to do this? Thanks,

Use GraphQL for that…
