Firebase Realtime DB's "append data to a list" function issue

  • Goal: Add a new object to an existing collection in Firebase Realtime DB.

  • Steps: I used the out-of-the-box "append to a list" function on the Firebase Realtime DB resource and have specified the object I want to add. See screenshot.

This is all good. However as I see the result in my Realtime DB in Firebase, I see that the object has been added BUT nested in a new object with a random ID.


Question: How to get rid of the super object that was created as I don't need that? If this is not possible then how can I at least update/change the randomly generated ID into something of my own?

Thank you.
