Firebase Question: Data Changed

I am interested in the block Data Changed. When I was testing to deploy it, I noticed it actually grabs the entire database. Is this normal behaviour?

I was trying to make an event handler for when one value changed, but I dont want the entire database being downloaded to the phone.

Am I doing something wrong? Here is an example of a use case

Did you tried with current blocks?

Also, can you show what is the tag and value result (if it is not private), so maybe we can find solution to only grab one data.

While I get the result I need, to much info is being pulled. This block shows how I see what it is processing.


I was also wondering about this. i want to get value when data is changed but this block is getting the old data upon startup. i don’t know if it is a bug or not . it is getting value when data is changed but also getting the old value as i mention.

i think @cian u see the toast “Credits updated” on very startup of your app?

Maybe this fix your problem.Firebase get all values from DB when screen started

Thanks for the help, but it did not work. For some reason the entire database is being downloaded on the first GET query.

Even if I change the value name, or the bucket name. I have to play with it some more. If this is going to be the case, I wont be ale to use it.

hello @Ali_Aydin i already know that, our issue is different. maybe you should read again.

Yes me too suffering from this problem, the event is triggered the times of tags in the database on every initialisation of screen .I even tried by toggling persist but no luck it is still triggering every time on startup.If anyone has solution please help.

can you please provide some details, what you are facing and what you are up to?

Okay thanks for the replay, I won’t repeat it next time and is there any other method to do so that we can notify when the question is not answered for long time.

I have used firebase ‘on data changed’ block to detect change in data, but when the screen initialises the data changed event is triggered and it fetches all the tags and values in firebase realtime database.I have also tried by turning on persist but the problem exists and it happen every time the screen is opened.
