Migrating to v6

Version 6 brings a major update of the Firebase extensions and with it a series of changes.

Auth#

Firebase Auth requires some changes to the manifest additions.

You will need to replace the following:

<!-- FIREBASE AUTH -->
<activity
android:name="com.google.firebase.auth.internal.FederatedSignInActivity"
android:excludeFromRecents="true"
android:exported="true"
android:launchMode="singleTask"
android:permission="com.google.firebase.auth.api.gms.permission.LAUNCH_FEDERATED_SIGN_IN"
android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar" />

with this:

<!-- FIREBASE AUTH -->
<activity
android:name="com.google.firebase.auth.internal.GenericIdpActivity"
android:excludeFromRecents="true"
android:exported="true"
android:launchMode="singleTask"
android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar" >
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
<data
android:host="firebase.auth"
android:path="/"
android:scheme="genericidp" />
</intent-filter>
</activity>
<activity
android:name="com.google.firebase.auth.internal.RecaptchaActivity"
android:excludeFromRecents="true"
android:exported="true"
android:launchMode="singleTask"
android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar" >
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
<data
android:host="firebase.auth"
android:path="/"
android:scheme="recaptcha" />
</intent-filter>
</activity>
<service
android:name="com.google.firebase.auth.api.fallback.service.FirebaseAuthFallbackService"
android:enabled="true"
android:exported="false" >
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="com.google.firebase.auth.api.gms.service.START" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
</intent-filter>
</service>

Remote Config#

Remote config extension has been updated and the API brought inline with the Firebase SDK.

The changes include:

  • The fetch() method has been removed and the newer fetchAndActivate() method added.

  • The ability to change the settings has been updated to utilise the FirebaseRemoteConfigSettings class through the setConfigSettings() function.

  • Retrieving the instance info also includes the current settings, FirebaseRemoteConfigInfo.settings retrieved through the call to getInfo().
