Delete User Data extension to allow targeting documents for a given field value

See original GitHub issue

Extension name

This feature request is for extension: delete-user-data

What feature would you like to see?

Ability to target documents that match the user ID as one of the fields in Firestore. One example would be a collection of articles and each article stores the author’s UID in the authorUID field. When the user decides to delete their account, all articles the user is the author of should be deleted.

How would you use it?

I’d use this feature to remove all user associated data in Firestore applications.

I’d be interested in using this. Can you share some snippets?

I forgot I also added the ability to delete storage paths based on a field from the userData. In other words, you can pass {DEFAULT}/{userData.avatar} into the storage path variable and it will first get collection(‘users’).doc(UID).get() and then get the avatar field and delete that file from the storage bucket. It’s a pretty hasty implementation but it works!

Hey @bhr, thanks for the feedback. This sounds like a potential feature request candidate.
