I’m unable to find the document I’ve created in a synced client realm in my connected MongoDB cluster. I’m able to query for the document I’ve created in the synced client realm, but when I check Atlas, the document isn’t in the collection.
I was under the impression that any mutations conducted in the synced client realm would persist to the MongoDB data cluster.
Does anyone have any insight into what’s going on?
Hey @Benjamin_Storrier we’ve spoken on email - I am looking into your issue right now - I will get back to via email and I am also happy to update your forum post with the findings. Yours is actually pretty unique
I am interested in @Jerry_Wang logs because generally there are a few simple remedies to documents not syncing - the most common culprit is a schema mismatch between the client and server schema. This can be remedied by matching the schemas and often requires a wipe of the client side as well.
Thanks for the support! I figured out that the main culprit was a permissions error, so I’ve given every user read and write permissions to everything (currently in development mode) for now, and everything’s syncing correctly so far. I’ll figure out how to correctly configure permissions later down the line and let you know if anything comes up.
Once again, I really appreciate your work and support!
When you say that your main culprit was a permission issue - did you see logs / messages that guided you to that conclusion?
@Ian_Ward - If this is the case - I would be a little confused about write permissions.
If a user doesn’t have permission to write to a realm, then I would have assumed that they would not be able to write to the local version of it.
If not - then the suggestion here is that a user can write to a local version of a realm they don’t have permissions to without triggering an error with the only consequence being that the data does not get synced back to the cloud.
@Benjamin_Storrier Your issue does not have to do with permissions - its internal - and has to do with merging changes - I am working with engineering right now on this and will provide you with more information when I we complete our investigation.
