Configuring Notifier events and properties

Notifier events allow you to embed scripts that manage the overall server-initiated synchronization process. For more information about the Notifier event sequence and how they are fired, see Notifier events.

For example, you can configure Notifier events to perform the following tasks:

  • Determine what, how, and to whom information is sent in a push request using the request_cursor event.

  • Create push requests that respond to changes in the consolidated database using the begin_poll event. (Advanced usage)

  • Delete push requests using the request_delete event. (If required)

  • Track Notifier polls and clean up table data using the end_poll event. (Advanced usage)

Notifier properties are similar to events. While events manage the notification process, properties manage Notifier behavior. For example, Notifier properties determine how often the Notifier should poll the consolidated database, and if the Notifier should be enabled on startup. Notifier properties and events are configured as server-side settings. For more information, see MobiLink server settings for server-initiated synchronization.
