Nested subqueries using "in" clause


Put simply, I am working on an Android app and trying to write a query that does the following (and actually is confirmed to work in the query workbench on the server end):

select a.* from data a where a.entityType=‘Foo’ and a.category=‘some-random-uuid’ and meta(a).id in (select raw foo from data where entityType=‘Bar’);

The id of a document of entityType Foo is potentially kept as a key “foo” on document(s) of entityType Bar. I’ve tried different combinations of things in the mobile app, but have been unsuccessful thus far.

LHS:""))).from(DataSource.database(database)).where(“entityType”).equalTo(“Foo”).and(…other filters that work…))


Basically what I’ve tried has been different variations of LHS.and(Expression.meta().getId().in(RHS) and trying to run that but not getting any results, when I can confirm that there should absolutely be results from just eyeballing my dataset.

Longhand:""))).from(DataSource.database(database)).where(“entityType”).equalTo(“Foo”).and(…other filters that work…)).and(Expression.meta().getId().in(“foo”))).from(DataSource.database(database)).where(“entityType”).equalTo(“Bar”)));

I suspect that having that second buried inside my overall query may be what is the issue here, but I’m not sure how to go about this otherwise. I am really trying to avoid having to just get the two ResultSets and then doing my own map-reduce on them. Any ideas are appreciated


Subqueries are not supported yet in Lite. That IN is for array operations (I.e. the type of a property is an array).


Is there any ETA on when subqueries will be supported? Unless I am missing something, I just did a spot check of the Expression API in 2.0.0-DB023 and it still appears as though the IN doesn’t work for anything other than other Expressions


Subqueries are not supported in 2.0.0.

We don’t have an ETA on supporting this (well- it won’t be in 2.1 due out in June sometime). But as with other requests, it will be prioritized against other features.
(Also, you mentioned DB023 - hope you have moved to the GA release of 2.0.0 )
