Populate Issue: Filtering Published Entries in Strapi

Hello Strapi Community,

I’m encountering an issue with a specific query in Strapi. Despite setting the publicationState to ‘live’, my query still returns unpublished entries. Here’s the query structure I’m using:


My goal is to retrieve only published entries, but the current setup doesn’t seem to filter out the unpublished ones. Has anyone faced a similar issue or can offer insights into what might be going wrong here?

Any guidance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
