Firebase/Zapier not finding recent records

Hello, I reported this issue to support but it is jut not working for me that they answes after several hours and that the initial response doesn’t even make sense.


I have a Zap to bring data from Firebase but it is not finding recent records. I saw someone else posted the issue but there was no real guidance on this. The only thing the documentation mentions is this:


our records need to be ordered lexicographically or by priority so new records appear at the top.

A simple way to accomplish this is by calling setWithPriority and using Firebase.ServerValue.TIMESTAMP to order by timestamp.

But that’s not helping either.

Any guidance on this?

Hi @Charles 

Are you using a structured query for your firebase trigger?

Would you mind sharing screenshots of how your Zap Trigger step is set up?

Hey @GetUWired I ended up figuring it out. Support was not helpful at all. Thanks for responding.

Hi @Charles!

I see that you provided some helpful feedback to our Support team so I’m going to share that here to help others who might find this thread :)

Firebase has a UI that makes it easy to verify the query but I found it after hours spent asking around.


Incidentally, we do also have some information in our help docs about creating a Firestore structured query for a trigger:
