Concurrency & Transactionality updates coming in Bubble?

Hey @bubble team @nickc @jess @allenyang , I am curious if there is any update on Concurrency & Transactionality with the Bubble system since 2018?

@emmanuel mentioned that it is was ‘quite high’ on the Roadmap back in 2018 and that it was going to be fixed soon, so it’s a known issue that needs to be solved and just a nice to have improvement.

I have recently hit limitations in my production app with customers that have Events selling out in minutes and letting more users buy than there should be, so I was looking into the best way to solve things and I can’t find much about issue having been fixed or addressed since Emmanuel’s linked response shown below. There are likely some other things I can do to help my specific issue, but a true solution I think can only happen with improvements to the way Bubble handles concurrent data writes/edits, so any updates with what is happening here would be great as it is a key function for the growth of my app moving forward.


Hey @gf_wolfer

In the meantime, perhaps my plugin Database Lock Plugin | Bubble could be useful for you to manage concurrency.


I looked at it a little but I don’t think this will help as it would then have a queue problem - failing some workflows while locked and then not being able to queue them in proper order to complete after the data is unlocked
