Use this stored procedure to add custom actions at the beginning of the synchronization process.

Rows in #hook_dict table




publication_n (in)


The publications being synchronized, where n is an integer. There is one publication_n entry for each publication being uploaded. The numbering of n starts at zero.

MobiLink user (in)

MobiLink user name

The MobiLink user for which you are synchronizing.

script version (in)

script version name

The MobiLink script version to be used for the synchronization.


If a procedure of this name exists, it is called at the beginning of the synchronization process.

Actions of this procedure are committed immediately after execution.

Assume you use the following table to log synchronization events on the remote database.

 "event_id"          integer NOT NULL DEFAULT autoincrement ,
   "event_name"       varchar(128) NOT NULL ,
   "ml_user"            varchar(128) NULL ,
   "event_time"         timestamp NULL,
   "table_name"         varchar(128) NULL ,
   "upsert_count"       varchar(128) NULL ,
   "delete_count"       varchar(128) NULL ,
   "exit_code"          integer NULL ,
   "status_retval"      varchar(128) NULL ,
   "pubs"                varchar(128) NULL ,
   "sync_descr "         varchar(128) NULL , 
    PRIMARY KEY ("event_id"),

The following example compiles a list of publications. It logs the list of publications and other synchronization information at the beginning of the synchronization process.

CREATE PROCEDURE sp_hook_dbmlsync_begin ()
    DECLARE pubs_list VARCHAR(1024);
    DECLARE temp_str VARCHAR(128);
    DECLARE qry VARCHAR(128);

-- insert publication list into pubs_list
    SELECT LIST(value) INTO pubs_list
     FROM #hook_dict
     WHERE name LIKE 'publication_%';

-- log publication and synchronization information
    INSERT INTO SyncLog(event_name,ml_user,pubs,event_time)
     SELECT 'dbmlsync_begin',#hook_dict.value,pubs_list,CURRENT TIMESTAMP
     FROM #hook_dict
     WHERE name='MobiLink user';
