Using Realm functions on Realm Cloud


#1

I’m looking to use Realm functions within my Realm cloud account to add some server side functionality and logic to my app. Ideally we have some event handlers which watched a realm, and then initiated some Javascript code.

I have been searching the docs and can’t seem to find a definitive answer, however I cannot see it when I open my Realm Studio instance for my cloud account.

Could somebody shed some light if this setup is possible please?

Here is a screenshot of the Realm function GUI in question:

It seems that it existed for ROS 2.0 but I can’t seem to find anything similar for ROS 3.x (Realm Cloud).

https://www.realm.io/realm-functions/#get-started no longer exists.

https://support.realm.io/support/solutions/articles/36000025290-how-can-i-execute-server-side-logic-functions-with-realm-cloud- says you have to run your own Node script somewhere and register listeners for ROS and cannot execute the functions within the ROS anymore.

Surprising, to be honest, as I had heard Realm Functions were an easy way for Backendless application logic, but I guess that was silently removed in favor of… something else.

And the silence shows that yes, Realm Functions are dead :expressionless:

@zhuinden Unfortunately, yes but they are still on our roadmap to add back at a later time. Probably based on some sort of kubernetes serverless functionality
