Prepare for the PgBouncer and IPv4 deprecations on 26th January 2024

Javascript Reference v2.0

Subscribe to channel

Creates an event handler that listens to changes.

  • By default, Broadcast and Presence are enabled for all projects.
  • By default, listening to database changes is disabled for new projects due to database performance and security concerns. You can turn it on by managing Realtime's replication.
  • You can receive the "previous" data for updates and deletes by setting the table's REPLICA IDENTITY to FULL (e.g., ALTER TABLE your_table REPLICA IDENTITY FULL;).
  • Row level security is not applied to delete statements. When RLS is enabled and replica identity is set to full, only the primary key is sent to clients.
