How do I return only selected certain Name fields in Strapi?

‘use strict’;
const { sanitizeEntity } = require(‘strapi-utils’);


  • Read the documentation (

  • to customize this controller
    module.exports = {
    // GET /hello
    async productSearch(ctx) {
    //const entity = await strapi.query(‘product’).model.fetchAll({ columns: [‘Name’,‘id’] })

    //const entity = await strapi.query(‘product’).model.fetchAll({ columns: [‘Name’, ‘id’] })

    const entity = await strapi.query(‘product’).model.fetchAll({ columns: [‘Name’,‘id’,‘product_sub_category’] })

    //return sanitizeEntity(entity, { model: strapi.models.test });
    const productObj = => sanitizeEntity(entity, { model: strapi.models.product }));

    // let newObj = [];
    // productObj.forEach(products => {
    // newObj.push({Name:products.Name, LastName: products.LastName});
    // });
    return productObj;

Hey @aatishnimbokar,

Sorry for my late reaction, I’m doing this in my free time and had time for my family this weekend. :wink:

But after trying something, this should work for you.

strapi.query('product').model.query(qb => { 
    qb.where('Name', 'LIKE', 'MattieBelt'); 
}).fetchAll( {
    columns: ['Name','id']

Hope this helps.

Do note this way you are using the underlying database service bookshelf, checkout the docs:

No issue Sir!

Thanks a lot for reply me
I will apply this and let you know
