For example, we may have up to 20 contributors in the list with keys contributor1, contributor2…contributor20. It may grow beyond 20. The test records I have now only go up to contributor5. I am dynamically adding contributors 1 through 20 in the query, but when I run the query I just get an error:
Could not find a field named 'contributors.contributor6.firstName' in the schema.despite the fact that I have 1-5.
