I'm a programmer myself, however I'm struggling with this portion of a project I'm working on and I'd rather not continue struggling with the Firebase documentation and just get this done.
I have a Firestore database using Google's Firebase platform, and I need to periodically query that database using the Cloud Firestore REST API. This requires a so-called separate "service account".
More info here: [login to view URL]
The fields I need to query in the Firestore database are structured as follows:
users > uid > uploaded-files > file > filename
`users` is the root collection
`uid` is a document and a random string
`uploaded-files` is a collection
`file` is a document and a random string
`filename` is a field belonging to `file`
