iCloud - Understanding how it works and scheme to use

Forums > Server-side Swift

Hi All,

I am part way through developing a reminder type app, it's a fairly simple app that loads into a foreach list of items in an array and so far I have got all the essentials sorted and I have moved on to iCloud now.

I have it working and syncing as needed, however I am struggling to understand why when I request all records in the public database in the development scheme I am given literally all of the records even though they are created using a different development Apple ID (I had problems logging into the sim with my personal one) and I'm wondering is this just development behaviour or should I assign an owner tag to filter by?

I was under the assumption that each record was given a unique id tied to the device/iCloud account and only that information would be available, but now I'm wondering if I am coding my query incorrectly or is this default behaviour for the development scheme to allow full testing, I don't want to assume anything when the time comes to move to the production scheme.

Any guidance or help on exactly how iCloud works would be greatly appreciated!
