I am developing a .NET app for iOS and Android. The user will have access to two Realms, one is the user’s personal collection of records and the other is a Realm with a ‘PUBLIC’ partition consisting of records all users have access to. Ideally I would like to package a version of this Realm with the app to avoid a large download (60k+ records) on initial sync.
I thought I had this working, I am running an Azure function that downloads a CSV file from a server (not mine), updates the records that have changed by using a Realm logged in with an API key, and then copies the Realm to a location where I can later package it into the app. This means the Realm should be vaguely up to date when the user installs, and only a few hundred records may get updated.
The problem I am having is that on app start when I try to sync the Realm with the server, I get the error:
User mismatch for client file identifier (IDENT) (ProtocolErrorCode=223)
I have not been able to find what this mean, but I assume it is because the Realm file is created with one user (the API key) and is then attempted to be consumed by a different user (the actual user) in the app. This all leads me to the question, is what I am attempting to do at all possible? Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated!
