First of all, welcome to the MongoDB Developer Community!
Regarding your question, there are no parameters in Realm CLI in order for you to force the push.
When a destructive change happens, pausing Sync won’t work. You have to execute a couple of extra steps:
You will need to terminate Device Sync. You can do that by going to your
/sync/config.json file in the project directory and setting the
state field to an empty string
"". After that please execute your
realm-cli push command.
Make the desired schema changes ensuring that the existing data is compliant, and execute
realm-cli push again to push your changes.
Enable Device Sync again by going to the
config.json file and change the
state field to
enabled. After that use the
realm-cli push command as the final step.
Please be aware that If you are re-enabling Atlas Device Sync after you have terminated it, you must perform a manual Client Reset in your client application.
I hope this helps.
