How to use fields in populate of sub category

I am using populate to populate image named as leftLogo which is inside Footer,
So to access that in populate I need to use populate[2]=Footer.leftLogo but in the image I only want to get the url, I tried multiple ways but I wasn’t able to get only url from a populated data.

Here is an example of how I have done this.

    let restaurants = await strapi.entityService.findMany(
        fields: ["ordinal", "feature_type", "width"],
        populate: {
          restaurant: {
            fields: ["title"],
            populate: ["lead_image"],
            populate: {
              tags: { fields: ["tag"] },
              room_types: { fields: ["price", "start_date"] },
              lead_image: {
                fields: ["alternativeText", "width", "height", "formats"],
        sort: ["feature_type", "ordinal"],


You used something of Strapi??
strapi.entityService one

I was using normal url to get those, ohk so this way I can get this,
I am newbie to Strapi, I have a doubt whether I should use axios or this strapi module??

You mentioned: axios, so you’re doing it on the frontend.
From some experiences I’ve had: It’s better to do it in the backend!

Create a custom route and controller then use entityService as mentioned by @knowncolor

Hope that helps
