I have a very simple component:

<aura:component implements="flexipage:availableForAllPageTypes" access="global">
    <lightning:empApi aura:id="empApi"/>
    <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.onInit}"/>

    onInit: function(component, event, helper) {
        var empApi = component.find("empApi");
        empApi.subscribe("/topic/AccountChanges?Id=0011t0000033C9QAAU", -1, function(message) {
            console.log("Event Received : " + JSON.stringify(message));

I also have PushTopic created like this: PushTopic Screenshot

What I am trying to do, is to only receive events for specific record Id. Based on documentation this should work: "/topic/AccountChanges?Id=0011t0000033C9QAAU", but it doesn't.

"/topic/AccountChanges" works though.

I've tried Id='0011t0000033C9QAAU' aswell, but no luck.

Do you know if it is possible at all?

    The filtered subscription doesn't even seem to be working when subscribed from say a java client using emp connector. The connection itself fails if filtered subscription is provided as an argument to the emp connector client – Jayant Das Nov 5 '18 at 18:42

Filtering is not available for subscriptions to Change Data Capture event streams. Only PushTopic streams exposed the ability for filtered subscriptions https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_streaming.meta/api_streaming/using_filtered_subscriptions.htm. We are prioritizing this work, but there the effort will require a few releases for GA.

Change Data Capture events : /data/*
PushTopic Streaming : /topic/*
Platform Events : /event/*
Generic Streaming : /u/*


Jayant - Sorry you encountered this error. I confirmed that this is indeed a recent issue with subscription filtering in EMP Connector and the empApi component. Salesforce is working on a fix. We have a PR for EMP Connector that fixes this problem here: https://github.com/forcedotcom/EMP-Connector/pull/43/files

  • Thanks for the update. I will definitely check it out after it is fixed. – diff Nov 13 '18 at 13:35
  • @Katia - Do you know if this has been resolved? Seems this was encountered again, here's the reference – Jayant Das Mar 20 at 15:34
