Use this stored procedure to run a SQL script that revises your schema.

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)

name of script version

The script version used for the synchronization.

drop hook (out)

never | always | on success

The values can be:

never - (the default) Do not drop the sp_hook_dbmlsync_schema_upgrade hook from the database.

always - After attempting to run the hook, ,drop the sp_hook_dbmlsync_schema_upgrade hook from the database.

on success - If the hook runs successfully, drop the sp_hook_dbmlsync_schema_upgrade hook from the database. On success is identical to always if the dbmlsync -eh option is used, or the dbmlsync extended option IgnoreHookErrors is set to true.


This stored procedure is intended for making schema changes to deployed remote databases. Using this hook for schema upgrades ensures that all changes on the remote database are synchronized before the schema is upgraded, which ensures that the database continues to synchronize. When this hook is being used you should not set the dbmlsync extended option LockTables to off (LockTables is on by default).

During any synchronization where the upload was applied successfully and acknowledged by MobiLink, this hook is called after the sp_hook_dbmlsync_download_end hook and before the sp_hook_dbmlsync_end hook. This hook is not called during download-only synchronization or when a file-based download is being created or applied.

Actions performed in this hook are committed immediately after the hook completes.

The following example uses the sp_hook_dbmlsync_schema_upgrade procedure to add a column to the Dealer table on the remote database. If the upgrade is successful the sp_hook_dbmlsync_schema_upgrade hook is dropped.

CREATE PROCEDURE sp_hook_dbmlsync_schema_upgrade()
 -- Upgrade the schema of the Dealer table. Add a column:
  ADD dealer_description VARCHAR(128);

 -- If the schema upgrade is successful, drop this hook:
 UPDATE #hook_dict
  SET value = 'on success'
  WHERE name = 'drop hook';
