How to exclude an id from another collection but accept the null values

I have a many-to-many relationship between two collections (articles and tags).
I am quering the collection “articles” excluding the tag = 3 like this :


But it doesn’t retrieve the articles that don’t have tags. (articles with tags=[ ]).

Any ideas how to query in strapi in order to include also the articles with empty tags when we are excluding an external id?

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:
