Update standard lightning component when skuid page is saved

edited January 3, 2020 in Questions
I'm trying create a Skuid page that interacts with a standard lightning component named Path. It's an Opportunity page and I want the user to be able to update the stage. When either the Path or Skuid page is updated, I want the component which hasn't been directly updated to update, so that both components are in sync.

From reading this link https://community.skuid.com/skuid/topics/lightning-skuid-page-edit-but-parent-doesnt-update I was under the impression I should be able to add an action named "Publish Event" to my Save button, with the event name force:refreshView essentially triggering the sync of both my components on the page, without having to do a whole page refresh, which would slow the page down massively. When Iook at the options in the "Event Name" drop down, I do not see "force:refreshView". Instead I see the options below.

Can someone help me on this please?

    You can still publish this event, you just need to manually enter it. Just enter "force:refreshView" into the "Event Name" box, and then hit tab to force this to save.

    Thanks Zach

    I've tried that, and it still won't work. here is a screenshot of the actions in my button

    And here is a screenshot of my page where you can see the Path hasn't been updated, even though the user has changed the stage, and saved the record.

    What version of Skuid are you running? This is working fine for me in my testing, I think I've replicated exactly the same set of actions that you are running. 

    Also, are you including this page via the Visualforce component, or the Skuid Page Lightning Component? This will ONLY work if you include the Skuid Page via the Skuid Page Lightning Component, the event publishing to Lightning Components doesn't work if you're including Skuid via a VF component.

    Also, did you know that, instead of publishing this event yourself, you can configure Skuid to automatically publish the "refreshView" event whenever a Model is saved, simply by checking the "Auto-sync with other Lightning Components" property in your Model's Advanced properties. As this property's help text describes, this sets up a 2-way street where Skuid models will listen for native Lightning Components to be updated and saved (e.g. a native Lightning page layout area), and where Skuid will tell native Lightning Components whenever Skuid Models are saved. The key event being published / subscribed to is the "force:refreshView" event (caveat: when you make a change to an Opportunity's Status via the Path component, SFDC does not fire the "Refresh View" event, so Skuid currently is not notified. But many other standard Lightning Components do publish the "force:refreshView" event, so Skuid is able to listen for that and update these models appropriately.
