I have an Article Content-Type which has a relationship with user, in which a User (from user-permissions) has many Articles, when i make a GET request to Articles with populate[0]=user or even populate β€˜*’ the relationship user is not present on the response data.


Hi @Juan_Willink - this might be due to a lack of permissions. Remember that the requesting source needs permissions for both sides of the relation. If the requesting user (authenticated or public) does not have the permissions for one side, the relation won’t be present in the response data.
