Cloud Firestore Connector

Summary

The Jitterbit Harmony Cloud Firestore Connector establishes access to Google Cloud Firestore.

The Cloud Firestore connector provides an interface for creating a Cloud Firestore connection, the foundation used for generating instances of Cloud Firestore activities. These activities, once configured, interact with Google Cloud Firestore through the connection.

The Cloud Firestore connector is accessed from the design component palette's Connectivity tab (see Connectors in Design Component Palette).

Connector Overview

This connector is used to first configure a Cloud Firestore connection. Activity types associated with that connection are then used to create instances of activities that are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).

Together, a specific Cloud Firestore connection and its activities are referred to as a Cloud Firestore endpoint:

Cloud Firestore activity types

  • Query: Queries documents within a collection in Cloud Firestore and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Create: Creates documents within a collection in Cloud Firestore and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Update: Updates documents within a collection in Cloud Firestore and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Delete: Deletes documents within a collection from Cloud Firestore and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

Prerequisites and Supported API Versions

The Cloud Firestore connector requires the use of an agent version 10.60 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.

The Cloud Firestore connector uses the Google Firebase JavaScript SDK v8. Refer to the documentation for information on the schema nodes and fields.

To use the Cloud Firestore connector, you must create a service account, grant roles, and obtain certain credentials in the Google Cloud Platform as described in Cloud Firestore Prerequisites.
