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.

  • Fixed: When calling User.me() to update the active users data, any data that was deleted since the last call will also be removed from the active user stored on the device. #299
  • Fixed: Any error thrown in the onNext function while using an observable will cause the onError function to be called with the thrown error. The subscriber will also be unsubscribed from the observable. #302
  • Fixed: Fix incorrect TypeScript definition for User.lookup() #301
  • Fixed: Add worker file required to upload files on Android. #300
  • 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.
  • Fixed: Add push bundle for iOS and Android to files property in package.json for the Kinvey NativeScript SDK. This fixes an error when trying to import the push module for the Kinvey NativeScript SDK. #296
  • Enhancement: Add support for Server Side Delta Set. #270
var datastore = Kinvey.DataStore.collection('books');

// Turn on for datastore instance
datastore.useDeltaSet = true; // Default is false

// Pass options.useDeltaSet to override datastore default for a pull() request.
// It will use value of datastore.useDeltaSet as default.
var promise = datastore.pull(query, { useDeltaSet: true });

// Pass options.useDeltaSet to override datastore default for a pull() request.
// It will use value of datastore.useDeltaSet as default.
var promise = datastore.find(query, { useDeltaSet: true });
  • Added role helper to the kinveyEntity module

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

  • Enhancement: Add validation that checks if a redirectUri provided to mic.login() is a string. If the redirectUri is not a string then an Error will be thrown. #283
  • Enhancement: Conforms the use of the iOS keychain to use the same settings as our Swift SDK. #257
  • Enhancement: Don't include the Push module by default in the SDK bundle. #282

  • Fixed: Use the correct config options to unregister push on iOS and Android. #284
  • Fixed: Add support for kinveyFileTTL and kinveyFileTLS query parameters for KinveyFile references on a DataStore collection. #289
var dataStore = Kinvey.DataStore.collection('pets');
dataStore.findById('3f583e9f-d064-4a25-a953-6cf0a3dc2ff1', { kinveyFileTTL: 3600, kinveyFileTLS: true })
  .subscribe(function(pet) {
    /*
      {
        "_id": "3f583e9f-d064-4a25-a953-6cf0a3dc2ff1",
        "_acl": {...},

  • Use active profile if no other specified on kinvey profile delete.

Open the Kinvey CLI GitHub repo for full documentation and source code.

  • Enhancement: Previously, a datastore instance would implicitly push pending entity changes before performing a request that would overwrite the local entity changes. This change removes the implicit push and will instead return an error stating that there are entities that need to be synced before you complete the action. #276
  • Enhancement: You can now provide a instanceId as a config option to init(). This will setup the backend and Mobile Identity Connect API urls to use your instanceId properly. #278
Kinvey.init({
  appKey: '<appKey>',
  appSecret: '<appSecret>'
  instanceId: '<my-subdomain>'
});
  • Enhancement: Add default entitlements.plist file to allow users to login while testing apps using the iOS simulator. #281
  • Fixed: Check that a value is an object before calling Object.keys() in Query.isSupportedOffline(). #245
  • Fixed: Use es6-promise for promises in live service related files instead of native promises. #272
  • Fixed: Override exported Files module to use the NativeScript SDK version. This fixes issues that might have been encountered when uploading files with the NativeScript SDK. #280
  • Enhancement: Allow NativeScript apps to read appKey, appSecret and masterSecret from the package.json file, instead of passing them as parameters to Kinvey.init(). #261
  • Enhancement: The default API version used by Mobile Identity Connect is now v3. #259 #268
  • Enhancement: Auto Pagination Support. #260

The Kinvey backend imposes a limit of 10,000 entities on data requests. If your app needs to pull a larger number of entities to the cache, you can request the SDK to "auto-paginate". The SDK will then retrieve the entire set of entities page by page. This feature only applies to Cache and Sync stores.

var dataStore = Kinvey.DataStore.collection('books', Kinvey.DataStoreType.Sync);

//Pull the entire collection page by page.
var promise = dataStore.pull(null, { autoPagination: true })
  .then(function onSuccess(count) {
    // "count" represents the number of entities retrieved
  }).catch(function onError(error) {
    // ...
  });

Breaking change: Previously, DataStore.pull() returned an array of the retrieved entities. With this release, the response of pull has changed to the count of retrieved entities.

If you need the array of entities retrieved by a pull in your app, you should call find after the pull has completed.

  • Fixed: The authorization header for Mobile Identity Connect token requests now uses the long-form OAuth Client ID. This fix is only relevant to apps that use multiple auth providers. A detailed discussion on OAuth Client IDs can be found in the Mobile Identity Connect guide. #263
  • Support for entering Instance ID instead of instance URL for dedicated client instances
  • More detailed and useful error messages
  • The flex deploy command now accepts --serviceId
  • The flex init command now requires a profile and ignores the --email, --password, and --host options
  • Support for outputting in JSON format
  • New --no-color flag for disabling colors in output
  • Bug fixes

Open the Kinvey CLI GitHub repo for full documentation and source code.

  • Enhancement: We've restructured our class hierarchy for working with data, to facilitate future performance improvements.
  • Enhancement: CacheStore methods create() and update() can now handle more concurrent requests.
  • Enhancement: CacheStore.delete() method now applies the same query both locally and against the backend, instead of making separate "by-id" requests for entities found in the cache.

  storage: Kinvey.StorageProvider.SQLite // or [Kinvey.StorageProvider.SQLite, Kinvey.StorageProvider.Memory]
});

// Possible Values
enum StorageProvider {
  SQLite
  Memory
}
  • Enhancement: You can now use a datastore to perform actions on a subset of data in a collection without providing a query each time to match that subset of data. See the code snippet below for an example. #220
var datastore = Kinvey.DataStore.collection('books', Kinvey.DataStore.Sync, { tag: 'Kinvey' }); // Tag the datastore
var query = new Kinvey.Query().equalTo('author', 'Kinvey');
datastore.pull(query)
  .then(function() {
    return datastore.find().toPromise();
  })
  .then(function(books) {
    // all of these books have Kinvey as their author
  });
