New in this release:

  • Enhancements:

    • Introduction of the new multi-insert logic for DataStore push method. (#238).
    • The beginning of the migration of the library to Kotlin, including an update to gradle version 5. (#239).

      Breaking Change: Because of migration to Kotlin and gradle version updating, you will need to add some changes to the build.gradle files:

      1. Delete old libraries from app/libs directory:


        and Add new version of java-api-core-x.x.x.jar and kinvey-android-x.x.x.aar.

      2. Remove from build.gradle (app module)

        dependencies {
           implementation ':realm-android-library:+@aar'
           implementation ':relinker:+@aar'
      3. Apply Realm plugin to build.gradle (app module) apply plugin: 'realm-android' and add Realm plugin to classpath in build.gradle (project module)

        buildscript {
           dependencies {
               classpath 'io.realm:realm-gradle-plugin:5.8.0'
      4. Add third part libraries as dependency

        implementation('') {
             exclude(module: 'google-play-services')
             exclude(module: 'xpp3')
        implementation ''
        implementation('') {
             exclude(module: 'xpp3')

        Also if you use LiveService to add:
        implementation group: 'com.pubnub', name: 'pubnub-gson', version: '4.18.0'

      5. Add Compatibility with Java 8

        android {
           compileOptions {
             sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
             targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8

Breaking change: Minimum Android SDK is now API 16. Android API 15 doesn't support TLSv1.1 or TLSv1.2, so the minimum version has been increased to support this. Applications which support Android API 16-20 have to update Android Kinvey library to the 3.1.3 version, since 3.1.3 version enables support for TLSv1.1 or TLSv1.2.

    • userStore
    • groupStore
    • push
    • email
  • FLEX-176 Add RoleStore

Upgrading from 2.x to 3.x

Flex-sdk 3.x contains several breaking changes as well as new features. To upgrade your service from Flex-sdk 2.x to 3.x:

  • All email and push methods now return a promise. It is now required that you either handle the promise, or pass a callback.
  • For all stores (e.g. dataStore, userStore, etc), the deprecated options skipBl and useMasterSecret have been removed and no longer function. Use useBl and useUserContext instead.
  • All asynchonous modules (dataStore, groupStore, roleStore, endpointRunner, userStore, email, and push) now return a promise or accept a callback.
  • For more information on what's new, see the Changelog.

Open the Flex SDK GitHub repo for more information and source code.

  • Enhancements:

    • The client-side Delta Set feature has been replaced by a server-side implementation called Delta Sync (Beta) that offers better performance and scalability. (#160).
    • Add @NonNull and @Nullable annotations for DataStore and UserStore. (#171).
    • pull and sync methods now return only count of pulled items from the backend.
  • Enhancement:

    • Add new X-Kinvey-Device-Info header for standardized capture of device and platform information. (#168).
  • Bug Fix:

    • Extending user class with properties of different class. (#167).
  • Ability to create internal Flex services using flex create.
  • Ability to delete internal Flex services using flex delete. Note that this command name was used to clear Node.js project setting in previous versions.
  • The flex delete command available in previous versions has a new name: flex clear. It keeps its behavior.
  • All delete commands now require confirmation that you can avoid using the new --no-prompt flag (available only for delete commands).
  • Unknown hyphenated options or flags now cause the command to exit with an error instead of being ignored.
  • Dependency updates: moment.js, request.js.
  • Added role helper to the kinveyEntity module
  • Disable the proxy when using dataStore
  • Disable the proxy for push and email modules
  • Fixed errors for null or empty entityIds for dataStore, groupStore, and userStore
  • Updated the request module to 2.85.0
  • Updated code-task-receiver to 2.2.3 to add response object parsing for FlexFunctions

Open the Flex SDK GitHub repo for more information and source code.

  • Enhancements:

    • isAutoPaginationEnabled flag was removed from DataStore. Now pull methods are available which take page size as a parameter, which will enable auto-pagination. (#159).
    • Add support for isAutoPagination parameter in pull methods, which defaults the page size used for auto-pagination to 10,000 entities. (#166).
    • KinveyPullResponse now has count of pulled items instead of list of pulled items. (#161).
    • Pull requests in auto-pagination mode are now executed concurrently in batches, for improved performance. (#164).
  • Bug Fix:

    • Sending X-Kinvey-Client-App-Version header before user is authorized, if a value for this has been set in the Client. (#165).

Breaking change: the flag dataStore.isAutopaginationEnabled() has been deprecated. In order to enable auto-pagination, use pull methods with page size in the parameter list to specify the page size for auto-pagination, or use pull methods with the isAutoPagination flag set to true, which will default the page size to 10,000 entities.

Breaking change: changes have been made to callbacks and response classes for sync and pull. KinveySyncCallback and KinveyPullCallback have been modified, because KinveyPullResponse was modified. It has been moved to another package, and has been updated to contain a count of pulled items instead of a list of pulled items. This was done to save on memory consumption in this case, where the goal of pull is to update the local cache.

Breaking change: KinveyListCallback has been changed to KinveyReadCallback, which returns with KinveyReadResponse in onSuccess. KinveyReadResponse contains a list of items and list of exceptions.

  • Support for managing apps within your Kinvey account: creating, listing, viewing details, deleting, and setting as active.
  • Support for managing environments within your Kinvey account: creating, listing, viewing details, deleting, and setting as active.

    • Fix the exception after refreshing token with MIC service.

New in this release:

  • Enhancements:

    • Social login methods are now deprecated in favor of using MIC flow (#216).
  • Bug Fixes:

    • Fixed an issue with access token path might be affected by the MIC API version. (#215).

    • Migrated to JobIntentService instead IntentService for KinveyGCMService, to fix an issue with push notifications and background execution (#214).

Now to use push notification through an integration with Google Cloud Messaging, the targetSdkVersion of your project should be set to at least API level 27. Also, please change code in your GCMReceiver from: ComponentName comp = new ComponentName(context.getPackageName(), com.myPackage.GCMService.class.getName()); startWakefulService(context, (intent.setComponent(comp))); setResultCode(Activity.RESULT_OK); to: ComponentName comp = new ComponentName(context.getPackageName(), GCMService.class.getName()); GCMService.enqueueWork(context, (intent.setComponent(comp)), GCMService.class);

And change declaration of service in your AndroidManifest: <service android:name=".GCMService" android:permission="android.permission.BIND_JOB_SERVICE" android:exported="true" />
