Hello Sankalp,

Kindly use the below code snippet in your custom code to retrieve the meta info of user.

String key1 = "name";

String value1 = "John";  

Query query =, value1, Operator.EQUALS);

HashMap<String, String> otherMetaHeaders = new HashMap<String, String>();

JSONObject json = new JSONObject();
json.put("dbName", "Your db name");
json.put("collectionName", "Your collection name");
otherMetaHeaders.put("dbCredentials", json.toString());

mScoreBoardService.setQuery("Your collection name", query);  

mScoreBoardService.setOtherMetaHeaders (otherMetaHeaders);


Game game = mScoreBoardService.getTopNRankers(gameName, 10);


Let us know if it helps.
