Adding User Management Queries for Firebase Auth

Upon successful configuration of the Firebase Auth (User Management) connector, you gain the ability to handle user-related operations. Follow these steps to proficiently create and manage user management queries, focusing on utilizing the List Users action:

  1. Name your Operation: Give your user management operation a unique name that facilitates easy identification and access within your Connector Library.

  2. Select Action - List Users: Navigate to the Firebase Auth (User Management) connector options and choose the List Users action. This action empowers you to retrieve a comprehensive list of users from your Firebase Authentication system.

  3. Set Additional Parameters: Depending on your specific requirements, utilize optional parameters to refine the List Users action. Customize the query by implementing filters, sorting criteria, or other pertinent options.

LimitRetrieve a limited number of documents based on specified criteria.
Page TokenRetrieve results starting from a specified page token. Useful for pagination.
User UIDTarget a specific user account for user-related operations.
User Phone NumberIdentify or filter users based on their associated phone numbers.
User Email AddressIdentify or filter users based on their associated email addresses.
User Provider UIDPrecisely target users using unique identifiers assigned by authentication providers.
User PropertiesFilter or update user data based on specific user properties or attributes.
  1. Run the Query: Once you've configured the action and parameters, you can execute the query by clicking Test Query The response will be displayed based on the provided parameters, allowing you to review the retrieved data or the outcome of the query.

  1. Test and Finalize:
    • Execute the query by testing it with dynamic values for the provider UID.
    • Upon successful testing, finalize the configuration.

By adhering to these steps, you can seamlessly harness the capabilities of the Firebase Auth (User Management) Connector to retrieve user details based on the provider UID. This enhances your ability to work with user data effectively within your application, providing an optimized user management experience.

Update a User

The Update a User action provides a method to modify attributes of an established Firebase Authentication user. This action requires the user's UID (unique identifier) along with an object containing the desired profile information or user properties to update within the user account's data.

When updating user details by referencing their UID, you can dynamically provide all values, enabling users to conveniently pass the necessary details as parameters to the connector.

In the example below, we demonstrate updating the email address of a user through their UID.

To provide details to make the call, you can use various input controls and actions. Later with controls you can showcase the end result of data after changes.

We'll be using input field to get the UID and emails to pass it as keyword parameters and display the final response in JSON viewer.
