Custom controller, find on related data

System Information
  • Strapi Version: 4.1.12

I’m trying to create a custom controller funcion to find on related data but keep getting all records.

Any suggestion?

This is the function code:

async getLessonsByInterest(ctx) {

  const { interest } = ctx.params
  let entities = await strapi.service('api::lesson.lesson').find({ '': interest }, populate);


I should get the list of lessons with the specified interest id but it’s not working.

Thank you

I think you couldn’t call Entity Service API like this.

const entries = await strapi.entityService.findMany('api::article.article', {
  fields: ['title', 'description'],
  filters: { title: 'Hello World' },
  sort: { createdAt: 'DESC' },
  populate: { category: true },
