    @natalio I just had a quick scan through the JS API Reference and I can't find saveEventually so don't think this functionality exists. If you would like to make a pull request or feature request please do on the JS repo.

    For the record we are phasing out this chat and If you have any further code level questions please ask them on Stack Overflow with the parse-platform tag - see announcement here

    @Tom-Fox1 OK thank you

    so while using the dashboard, sometimes I want to fill in all fields before saving the object. Right now it seems to save as soon as I provide one field on the row. Is this done intentionally?
    I wouldn't mind looking into the code and submitting a PR but I wasn't sure if this is something you just hold CTRL and do.
    Tom Fox
    @blastoy I'm not aware if this is possible so how about you make an issue on the Parse Dashboard GitHub repo. We don't really use GitHub issues for support but as you are happy to make a PR for this I think that would be fine.
    Hi everyone! In 2017 when Parse closed I was a big user. It was by far my favorite DB. When they moved it in open source I decided to move to other solutions because it was not stable enough for production. What I want to know is, do the community is taking care of all the SDK and is it stable enough for production, what are the limitation?

    @SimonBourdon We are closing down the chat in favour of other channels, so please join the community forum but I will quickly answer your questions anyway.

    My personal opinion is that most of the SDKs are in good shape but not all are super active. In fact there was a new release of the JS SDK just yesterday. The iOS SDK is lacking a committed maintainer but still works well.

    In terms of your concerns about scaling and use in production - see this - of course achieving smooth scaling is not just down to Parse Sever it also relies on you having the right infrastructure in place. Moreover the purpose of the Parse Platform is not to power the next Amazon it is to enable the next Amazon to grow to the point where it can sustain its own in-house backend etc.

    As always if there is something that doesn't work or a feature you would like to see added we are a very welcoming community that is always open to pull requests.

    It's also worth noting that since 2017 a lot of work has been put in across all of the Parse Platform to make it as stable as possible.
    Thanks for the fast response @Tom-Fox1 !
    Why are you moving out of gitter? so nice to have real time conversations
    Tom Fox

    Multiple reasons:

    • We have too many channels with questions getting cross posted
    • There is no feasible way of discovering old 'answers' on here & discussions can be hard to follow especially if more than one are going on simultaneously
    • People often end up answering questions multiple times (waste of maintainer time)
    • There is a lack of moderation capabilities which are offered in bucketloads on Stack Overflow and the Discourse forum
    • People we're using this chat for all sorts of different things which don't make sense

    See the discussion on this parse-community/parse-server#5419

    We do still use the Slack group which is useful for organisational discussion amongst maintainers (mainly in private messages - so don't be put off by the lack of activity in the public threads).

    Hi, How i can survive future Parse upgrades with minimal changes on my all cloud functions ?
    Diamond Lewis
    Update every release should minimize changes. Server 3.0 and JS 2.0 were the last major releases so breaking changes were introduced
    Dipten Bhut
    We may have Parse breaking changes on Future upcoming versions like 4.x as i need to keep updating Parse server version.
    Is there anyway i can be use latest and upcoming Parse server versions in future with minimal changes on cloud code functions ?
    Diamond Lewis
    I don’t think you have to worry about that from a cloud code perspective
    Dipten Bhut
    Do you think we have any syntax or breaking changes on next version of JS 2.0 ?
    Diamond Lewis
    Since then there hasn’t been any syntax or breaking changes.

    Do you suggest to write an adapter kind of thing over Parse queries ?

    We would like to write a cloud code function that can log a user in without knowing the password. One source suggested making a Session, but even with {useMasterKey:true} I can't set the user field of a Parse.Session. Anyone know a workable approach? (unfortunately we're still on 2.8.4)

    Hey there fellas, I'm attempting to download a file from Parse. I've found plenty of documentation and can upload no problem, now I'm trying to retrieve the files! I get 403 error no matter what I try so far.
        fw_binary = CFAFirmware.Query.get(fw_version=version_num)
        fw_url = fw_binary.fw_file.url
        payload = {}
        headers = {
            "X-Parse-Application-Id": "{}".format(parse_utils.APPLICATION_ID),
            "X-Parse-REST-API-Key": "{}".format(parse_utils.REST_API_KEY)
        res = requests.get(fw_url, headers=headers)
    Any suggestions?
    Diamond Lewis
    Is your fileURL correct? And can you view it publicly

    @mj7man_twitter maybe authentication issue? Did you copy/paste this code from the docs or did you try to do a rest-request yourself?

    Hello, i have a problem. Couldn't find a way to query rows with array keys equal to empty array.
    For example:
    I have class 'Shelf' with key 'books' type of Array
    I have 2 rows. First row has books = [ { Pointer }, { Pointer } ]. Second row has books = []
    How do i query second row?
    @sqz:matrix.org Not sure if i understand
    @sqz:matrix.org You mean books[1] ?
    Omar Juarez
    Sashido or Back4app ?
    sqz Omar Juarez (Gitter): I do database imports/exports on a daily basis between my production & dev-server (postgres that is)
    sqz I can imagine this works similar for mongodump on the cmdline
    sqz Back4app instances also give you a mongodb uri (which can be used with mongodump e.g.)

    Thanks for the reply @matrixbot
