I have implemented the custom datatable component(the child component c-custom-table not shown in this post) that is dispatching the event once the record have been successfully saved.


    <div class="slds-p-var-around_medium">
        <lightning-card title="Some Title">
            <template if:true={someData.data}>
                <c-custom-table some-data={someData.data}

The component is placed in the parent component that is handling the data fetching/ manipulation and passes it down to child components


import { LightningElement, api, wire } from "lwc";
import getSomeData from "c/someSobjectModule";
import { refreshApex } from "@salesforce/apex";

export default class ParentComponent extends LightningElement {
  @api recordId;

  @wire(getSomeData, { id: "$recordId" })
  handleSuccess(event) {
    return refreshApex(this.someData);

The problem is that the apex method is imported in a ES6 module that is handling other imports related to specific Sobject for code maintainability and also as a middle layer between front-end and back-end code.


import _getData from "@salesforce/apex/ApexController.getData";

const getData = (someId) => {
  return _getData({ id: someId });

export { getData };

The apex method is flagged as cacheable once it's only fetching the data


public with sharing class ApexController {
    public static List<CustomObject__c> getData(String id){
        List<CustomObject__c> data =  new List<CustomObject__c>(); 
        try {
            data = [
                SELECT Name, Quantity  
                FROM CustomObject__c 
                WHERE RelatedObjectId__c =: id ];
        } catch (Exception e) {
            throw new AuraHandledException(e.getMessage());
        return data;

It seems that the wire service is not provisioning the data from apex due to inappropriate form as I am receiving the following error once I am trying to access a parent component

Message: adapter is not a constructor

Component Descriptor: c:parentComponent

If I call the apex method imperatively it behaves the same. On the other hand, if I import the apex method directly in parent component it works as expected. Is it possible to wire a method from ES6 module in parentComponent and then use refreshApex to reload the data? Am I forced exporting the apex method directly in the parent component by some framework vulnerabilities?

You can't use wire with this design, because there's some "background magic" that goes on with imported methods, and that magic is lost when you:

return _getData({id:someId})

This is an imperative call, not a wire call. You'd have to:

return _getData;

At which point, you're basically just adding an extra layer to what's already a fairly simple process.

But, to get around to the main question, you should technically be able to do this by building a local cache of the responses.

import _getData from "@salesforce/apex/ApexController.getData";
const cache = {};
const getData = (someId) => {
  return new Promise((resolve, reject) {
    _getData({ id: someId }).then((result) => {
      cache[someId] = result;
const refresh = (someId) => {
  return new Promise((resolve,reject) => {
    refreshApex(cache[someId]).then((result) => {
      cache[someId] = result;

export { getData, refresh };

Which you can then use as you'd expect:




No wire calls will work, though, because you have to use a special Apex method, which basically defeats the purpose of using wire methods to begin with.

  • Thanks for clarification @sfdcfox. The proposed solution is handy but it will add the unnecessary complexity so, I end up with adding the apex import in parent component Apr 22, 2021 at 10:15
