bug(remote-config): activate and fetchAndActivate returning false but successful

See original GitHub issue

Plugin(s):@capacitor-firebase/analytics”: “^1.2.0” “@capacitor-firebase/crashlytics”: “^1.2.0” “@capacitor-firebase/performance”: “^1.2.0” “@capacitor-firebase/remote-config”: “^1.2.0-dev.8dd4ad6.1668633721”

Platform(s): Android

Current behavior: Calling activate or fetchAndActivate returns the success callback but the result.booleanValue() is false and since it hasn’t been activated requesting any values fails to complete.

Expected behavior: Calling activate or fetchAndActivate then requesting a value succeeds.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Make a call to fetchAndActivate
  2. Make a call to fetch some kind of value

Related code:

await FirebaseRemoteConfig.fetchAndActivate()

alert((await FirebaseRemoteConfig.getNumber({ key: 'my_number' })).value)

Other information: I testing on iOS and it works as expected. I double checked my google-services.json seems to be loaded correctly account to logcat. I also sent a test event using the analytics plugin which was success. Here are some screenshots of what I’m seeing when debugging:

Regarding the success value:

Task with a true result if the current call activated the fetched configs; if no configs were fetched from the backend and the local fetched configs have already been activated, returns a Task with a false result.


So you already had the up-to-date configs.

I haven’t been able to consistently reproduce this so am closing it.
