  1. Transactions allow passing an options object with maxRetries, but all retries are immediate. If there are many other functions writing the same document, transactions will fail after all retries (lock will time out). Maybe a better strategy would be to delay with exponential backoff like pub sub does.

  2. It'd be really nice if you could allow users to create local drafts, of small documents, for instance, and save them locally for free with Firestore.

    This way you wouldn't have to coordinate Firestore and its rules with some other database and client code nor would you have to choose the simpler option of getting charged for writes and reads on remote database documents that really only one user is supposed to write and read.

    Please note that while you could use the realtime database to save drafts, 1 it's not always easy to figure out whether that'd actually be…

  4. There should be an easy way to get a specific document by index in a query:

    // this query should work as it's read, if i wanted to use gte i'd use a where

    query(this.collection, orderBy('anything', 'asc'), startAt(index), limit(1))

  5. For some reason an 'in' wury with a 2d array also runs with a sort function. which is not provided or supported by other features such as ArrayUnion and ArrayRemove.

    the order should be an optional parameter because using a system where we must find all other documents that have the exact same features but maybe in a different order, is not possible. there is no native sort option when using ArrayUnion, and we've been taught through firestore arrays in general, that orders of items fundamentally shouldn't be considered to exist due to idempotency.

    TLDR:
    ArrayUnion does not support 'in…

  6. I want to ask documentation on how to reduce the number of unnecessary reads. eg. my product data

    let query = store.collection("products");

    Assuming I have 500 products, one user click on get products = 500 reads ? If 100 users click that function, then all my quota is gone in 1 minute. Is that right?

    How can I overcome this.

    Please provide a full example. I have seen Mr Duckworth's presentation in a firebase event, but could not see a good example.

  7. Currently the Firestore API supports FieldValue.increment() to atomically increment or decrement a numeric value. I propose to add:

    • FieldValue.max(value): if the provided value is greater than the existing value on the server, then the field on the server takes this value. If it is less than the existing value, then the existing value remains.

    • FieldValue.min(value): (the opposite) if the provided value is less than the existing value on the server, then the field on the server takes this value. If it is greater than the existing value, then the existing value remains.

    These operators should work on numeric fields AND…

  8. I've used both Firestore and MongoDB's Realm Device Sync. While Firestore works great in terms of scaling, the performance and speed for client side write is far behind realm, especially when client side is doing some batch writes.

    Realm uses techniques like data compression and delta sync to reduce the data size when uploading (https://www.mongodb.com/docs/atlas/app-services/sync/details/protocol/), I'd like to see Firestore doing the same and improve the performance of client side batch write.

    Also, what I've noticed is that Firestore's client side write performance degrades a lot after some time being offline, this isn't great for apps that would…

  10. You cannot delete a Firestore database with the API; you must use the CLI if you want to do this programmatically. This is problematic as it means you essentially need to create a shell in your application, ensure the CLI is available, authenticate, and then make the required CLI call.

  12. Sometimes it would be nice to have ability to use the console to Duplicate/Copy firestore documents and put them in different locations of the database.

  13. Currently, subcollections are treated separately from fields in the UI. This seems like an arbitrary distinction - a subcollection is simply a json object under a document. You could do the same thing with a string field.

    The API could support retrieving subcollections as string fields in json format for a document. This would prevent the need to iterate over every document in a collection, then get a list of the subcollections, then retrieve the documents from those subcollections, etc. If worried about time required, since Firestore supports 100 nesting levels, perhaps the API call could include the nesting level…

  14. Developers should be able to use the CLI to easily pass in a path to a json file, whose contents may be imported into a firestore emulator collection. For instance:

    firebase emulators:start --import ./data/import.json --collection=puzzles

  15. Currently, Firestore and Cloud Storage security rules req.auth property will only validate and accept Google-signed ID tokens from Firebase Auth/Identity Platform.

    This means that "user authentication rules" CANNOT be used if we rely on our own (or 3rd-party) authentication/token server.

    Proposal:
    Allow security rules to configure the token verification rules so that they can verify the token claims of a configured token authority. For example, tokens signed by a service account private key, or 3rd party auth server (aside from Firebase Auth/Identity Platform).

  16. let's say that you have a Kotlin android app, Swift iOS app, a Dart Flutter app and cloud functions written in typescript.
    there should be a way to re-use shared queries across the whole stack.
    having a query language like SQL and pass those redundant queries across all apps that would be really efficient and could save developers a lot of time and it could produce less bugs.

    I'm not suggesting SQL, I'm suggesting to have a query language that's all.

  17. As a Firestore project grows, so do the number of Composite Indexes.

    While the fields are visible, being able to name a composite index would allow us to define which specific feature(s) a composite index is tied to, allowing us to remove unused indexes if they're no longer relevant.

  19. When a project grows to a certain size, you'll likely have many indexes with associated queries.

    However, queries change, or get removed, and currently there's no way to see if an index could be safely removed, after a query is; which would be a great feature.

  20. While committing a batch to firestore, if a documents breaks one of the security rules, we only receive: Status{code=PERMISSION_DENIED, description=Missing or insufficient permissions., cause=null}
    That doesn't tell me which document in the batch has the issue. Can you add the document path the is causing the error? Potentially in the "cause" field?

    The logic behind this is that we are seeing Crashlytics reports on our android project with these PERMISSION_DENIED errors, and it is near impossible to track it down without more data.
