Force server to re-publish the auto publication

Just wondering if anyone has a neat little trick to get this to work.

I have a default publication which goes to all logged in users. (publish some of the user document, plus some others).
There are circumstances when I need that publication to re-run.
The simplest and easiest way I have come up with getting this to work is by forcing a page refresh for the client…

I am sure there is a better way, any ideas?

By Auto Publication I mean one with a null name:

Meteor.publish(null, function() { ... }

What are those circumstances?

Also when you publish something with ‘null’ it will be send to all client, even the ones that aren’t logged in.

You’re correct, but in that subscription I only respond to logged in users.
In that auto subscription I return cursors for two collections - the user and another one.
If the user makes changes to their profile, it influences the other subscription - so I just need it to refresh itself.

The low level publish API is your friend in this case. If you don’t want to delve into that, then a package like redwood:publish-composite, which uses this API would work as well.
