Remap a Property - React Native SDK

On this page

  • Overview

To use a different property name in your code than is stored in Realm Database, set mapTo to the name of the property as it appears in your code.


A developer opens a realm using the following Dog object schema. Realm Database stores each dog's first name with the snake case first_name property. The schema maps the property to firstName for objects used in JavaScript code.

const DogSchema = {
name: "Dog",
properties: {
_id: "string",
first_name: { type: 'string', mapTo: 'firstName' }
primaryKey: '_id'
