Rename Collection / Change Collection ID

Cloud Firestore has amazing realtime and scaling capabilities, but the Firebase Console is missing some essential features like renaming collections. Previously you had to create a new collection with the same documents and delete the old collection manually or write a script that does this for you.

Step by Step Instructions For Renaming a Collection

  1. Right-click the collection in the sidebar and select Rename Collection.

  3. That’s it!
Firefoo will automatically copy all documents. This might take some time if the collection is huge. You can track the progress in the Tasks popup, reachable through File › Tasks.
