Uncaught Error: Trying to resolve a property builder without specifying the entity path

See original GitHub issue


I have these two collections.

const productsCollection = buildCollection<Product>({
  name: "Products",
  singularName: "Product",
  path: "products",
  properties: {
    name: {
      name: "Name",
      validation: { required: true },
      dataType: "string"
    related_songs: {
      dataType: "array",
      name: "Related products",
      description: "Reference to self",
      of: {
        dataType: "reference",
        path: "songs"

const songsCollection = buildCollection<Song>({
  path: 'songs',
  name: 'Songs',
  singularName: 'Song',
  properties: {
    title: {
      name: 'Title',
      dataType: 'string',
      validation: {
        required: true,
    product_ref: {
      name: 'Parent Product',
      dataType: 'reference',
      path: 'products',
      validation: {
        required: true,

When I try to set a product in songs collection I get this error on the UI:



Uncaught Error: Trying to resolve a property builder without specifying the entity path

    at updateFunctionComponent (react-dom.development.js:19588:1)
    at beginWork (react-dom.development.js:21601:1)

It actually sets the product reference in the db but I can’t edit or see in the UI. Is this my mistake? How can I resolve this issue? FireCMS: 2.0.0-alpha.41 Thank you.
