Use results of server side action in client side actions

I’m currently exploring bubble plugin builder. I have a question. Is it possible to use the returned value of a server side action within client side code?

Best, Evans.

Only if you save the returned value in your database, so it will become visible in client side…

Not quite correct. You can call a server-side function from any workflow, including client-side workflows. Which means you can use the output of the server-side function on the client-side. That said there is a substantial two fold performance hit:

  1. On the first call the JIT AWS Lambda has to “warm up”, that is compile before making the call.
  2. Even once “hot” the function still has a network latency penalty as the client waits for the server to return.

I recommend restricting this design pattern to only “must have” authentication processes where some form of token has to be generated on the Bubble Server to be passed to a tertiary service, e.g. signed authentication tokens passed to AWS IVS.


You are absolutely right. I didn’t explain myself clearly. I was thinking in workflows that runs (server-side) when user is not logged in. Don’t know why I responded that…
