Retrieve info from firebase

I need to retrieve specific info from Firebase Realtime Database to send push messages, but don’t know how to do it, I need to get in String the device token from all the users, so tried to call Users, the should call user ids (this part is where I’m lost, don’t know how to get this path), and then device token.

This is what I have :

UsersRef = FirebaseDatabase.getInstance().getReference().child("Users");

    usersIDs = UsersRef.getKey().toString();

    UsersRef.child(usersIDs).addValueEventListener(new ValueEventListener() {
        public void onDataChange(@NotNull DataSnapshot dataSnapshot) {
            if (dataSnapshot.exists()) {
                if (dataSnapshot.hasChild("device_token")) {
                    receiverUserDeviceToken = dataSnapshot.child("device_token").getValue().toString();

        public void onCancelled(@NotNull DatabaseError error) {

I tried to edit with your code, but i dont have get() on my list.

>Solution :

According to your last comment:

Correct, I need to get both values.

Please use the following lines of code:

DatabaseReference rootRef = FirebaseDatabase.getInstance().getReference();
DatabaseReference users = rootRef.child("Users");
usersRef.get().addOnCompleteListener(new OnCompleteListener<DataSnapshot>() {
    public void onComplete(@NonNull Task<DataSnapshot> task) {
        if (task.isSuccessful()) {
            for (DataSnapshot userSnapshot : task.getResult().getChildren()) {
                String deviceToken = userSnapshot.child("device_token").getValue(String.class);
                Log.d("TAG", deviceToken);
        } else {
            Log.d("TAG", task.getException().getMessage()); //Don't ignore potential errors!

The result in the logcat will be:


Remember, to be able to get all the results from a DataSnapshot object, you have to iterate through the children using .getChildren().
