I've found a couple answers online, but nothing official I believe. I'm using prismic's REST API to fetch some data from our public master version (security is set to "Public API for Master only"), and you need to pass in a ref to master, which appears to be changing every time we do a release.
I saw some people recommend you always do a first query to
/api and get the ref from there, but that requires an extra back-and-forth to prismic, which is wasted time for us, as we use the data to render a client-side page, and that makes the data appear late.
I was wondering whether simply using an alias, that dynamically points to the master ref on prismic's backend was something that was being considered?
Simply being able to do
ref=MASTER_REF would be very helpful.
