While developing Firebase Firestore Library and updating Firebase RemoteConfig library i encountered that new Manifestentries have to be made.

The firebase.b4x_excluded from FirebaseAnalytics contains this snippet:

B4X:
CreateResourceFromFile("google-services", "google-services.json")
AddPermission(android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE)
AddPermission(android.permission.INTERNET)
AddPermission(android.permission.WAKE_LOCK)
AddPermission(com.google.android.c2dm.permission.RECEIVE)
AddPermission(${applicationId}.permission.C2D_MESSAGE)
AddPermission(com.google.android.finsky.permission.BIND_GET_INSTALL_REFERRER_SERVICE)
AddManifestText( <permission android:name="${applicationId}.permission.C2D_MESSAGE"
  android:protectionLevel="signature" />)
AddApplicationText(
 <receiver
            android:name="com.google.android.gms.measurement.AppMeasurementReceiver"
            android:enabled="true"
            android:exported="false" >
        </receiver>

  <service
            android:name="com.google.android.gms.measurement.AppMeasurementService"
            android:enabled="true"
            android:exported="false" />
            
 <receiver
            android:name="com.google.android.gms.measurement.AppMeasurementInstallReferrerReceiver"
            android:enabled="true"
            android:exported="true"
            android:permission="android.permission.INSTALL_PACKAGES" >
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="com.android.vending.INSTALL_REFERRER" />
            </intent-filter>
</receiver>
<service
            android:name="com.google.android.gms.measurement.AppMeasurementJobService"
            android:enabled="true"
            android:exported="false"
            android:permission="android.permission.BIND_JOB_SERVICE" />

 <service android:name="com.google.firebase.components.ComponentDiscoveryService" >
            <meta-data
                android:name="com.google.firebase.components:com.google.firebase.analytics.connector.internal.AnalyticsConnectorRegistrar"
                android:value="com.google.firebase.components.ComponentRegistrar" />
             <meta-data
                android:name="com.google.firebase.components:com.google.firebase.iid.Registrar"
                android:value="com.google.firebase.components.ComponentRegistrar" />
             <meta-data
                android:name="com.google.firebase.components:com.google.firebase.auth.FirebaseAuthRegistrar"
                android:value="com.google.firebase.components.ComponentRegistrar" />
</service>
   <provider
  android:authorities="${applicationId}.firebaseinitprovider"
  android:name="com.google.firebase.provider.FirebaseInitProvider"
  android:exported="false"
  android:initOrder="100" />
 
   <receiver
  android:name="com.google.firebase.iid.FirebaseInstanceIdReceiver"
  android:exported="true"
  android:permission="com.google.android.c2dm.permission.SEND" >
  <intent-filter>
  <action android:name="com.google.android.c2dm.intent.RECEIVE" />
  <action android:name="com.google.android.c2dm.intent.REGISTRATION" />
  <category android:name="${applicationId}" />
  </intent-filter>
  </receiver>
    <receiver
  android:name="com.google.firebase.iid.FirebaseInstanceIdInternalReceiver"
  android:exported="false" />


  <service
  android:name="com.google.firebase.iid.FirebaseInstanceIdService"
  android:exported="true">
  <intent-filter android:priority="-500">
  <action android:name="com.google.firebase.INSTANCE_ID_EVENT" />
  </intent-filter>
  </service>
)
In fact the entries which belongs to ComponentDiscoveryService are the interesting ones

B4X:
<service android:name="com.google.firebase.components.ComponentDiscoveryService" >
            <meta-data
                android:name="com.google.firebase.components:com.google.firebase.analytics.connector.internal.AnalyticsConnectorRegistrar"
                android:value="com.google.firebase.components.ComponentRegistrar" />
             <meta-data
                android:name="com.google.firebase.components:com.google.firebase.iid.Registrar"
                android:value="com.google.firebase.components.ComponentRegistrar" />
             <meta-data
                android:name="com.google.firebase.components:com.google.firebase.auth.FirebaseAuthRegistrar"
                android:value="com.google.firebase.components.ComponentRegistrar" />
</service>
To get firestore working i needed to add
B4X:
<meta-data android:name="com.google.firebase.components:com.google.firebase.firestore.FirestoreRegistrar"
             android:value="com.google.firebase.components.ComponentRegistrar"/>
to this service.

----------------------------------------

To get RemoteConfig working again i needed to add

B4X:
 <meta-data
                android:name="com.google.firebase.components:com.google.firebase.remoteconfig.RemoteConfigRegistrar"
                android:value="com.google.firebase.components.ComponentRegistrar"/>
to this service.

I am wondering if it is a good idea to ask Erel to add this meta-data´s to the Firebaseintegration.

for now i am using a replacement for FirebaseAnalytics.firebase.b4x_excluded from FirebaseAnalytics and tell the user to change the integration to my edited snippet.

And i also facing the same problem when trying to get the Firebase InAppMessaging (currently in Beta) working.
Ok, here i am facing other problems too. i´m not able to resolve a maven artifact not found error. Even when trying to "patch" the installed_components. I´ll create a new thread for this issue.


But i know i need to add another meta-data for FirebaseInAppMessaging too.
in particular:
B4X:
<meta-data
android:name="com.google.firebase.components:com.google.firebase.inappmessaging.FirebaseInAppMessagingRegistrar"
android:value="com.google.firebase.components.ComponentRegistrar"/>
