MobiLink synchronization profiles

Synchronization profiles allow you to place some dbmlsync options in the database. The synchronization profile you create can contain a variety of synchronizations options.

Synchronization profiles can be created, altered and dropped using the following statements:

Synchronization profiles can be accessed using the dbmlsync -sp option, the Sync method in the Dbmlsync API, the SQL SYNCHRONIZE statement and the remote tasks created from central administration of remote databases. In all cases there is the ability to specify additional options that are merged with the options in the synchronization profiles. If any of the extra option specified conflicts with an option specified in the synchronization profile, the value specified by the extra options is used.

When using the dbmlsync -sp options, all the other options on the command line are treated as extra options. The other interfaces provide a specific parameter or clause for specifying extra options.

For information about using synchronization profiles in UltraLite, see Synchronization profile options.

The following options can be specified in a synchronization profile:

Long option name Short name Allowed values Description
AuthParms ap String Supplies parameters to the authenticate_parameters script and to authentication parameters. See AuthParms synchronization profile option.
ApplyDnldFile ba String Applies a download file. See ApplyDnldFile synchronization profile option.
Background bk String Enables background synchronization when set to TRUE. See Background synchronization profile option.
BackgroundRetry bkr Integer Controls how dbmlsync behaves after a background synchronization is interrupted. See BackgroundRetry synchronization profile option.
ContinueDownload dc Boolean Restarts a previously failed download. See ContinueDownload synchronization profile option.
CreateDnldFile bc String Creates a download file. See CreateDnldFile synchronization profile option.
DnldFileExtra be String When creating a download file, this option specifies an extra string to be included in the file. See DnldFileExtra synchronization profile option.
DownloadOnly ds Boolean Performs a download-only synchronization. See DownloadOnly synchronization profile option.
DownloadReadSize drs Integer For restartable downloads, specifies the maximum amount of data that may need to be re-sent after a communications failure. See DownloadReadSize synchronization profile option.
ExtOpt e String Specifies extended options. See ExtOpt synchronization profile option.
IgnoreHookErrors eh Boolean Ignores errors that occur in hook functions. See IgnoreHookErrors synchronization profile option.
IgnoreScheduling is Boolean Ignores scheduling instructions so that synchronization is immediate. See IgnoreScheduling synchronization profile option.
KillConnections d Boolean Drops conflicting locks to the remote database. See KillConnections synchronization profile option.
LogRenameSize x An integer optionally followed by K or M. Renames and restarts the transaction log after it has been scanned for upload data. See LogRenameSize synchronization profile option.
MobiLinkPwd mp String Supplies the password of the MobiLink user. See MobiLinkPwd synchronization profile option.
MLUser u String Specifies the MobiLink user name. See MLUser synchronization profile option (deprecated).
NewMobiLinkPwd mn String Supplies a new password for the MobiLink user. Use this option when you want to change an existing password. See NewMobiLinkPwd synchronization profile option.
Ping pi Boolean Pings a MobiLink server to confirm communications between the client and MobiLink. See Ping synchronization profile option.
Publication n String This option is deprecated. Specifies the publications(s) to synchronize. Publication can only be specified once in a synchronization profile but the command line option can be specified multiple times. See Publication synchronization profile option (deprecated).
RemoteProgressGreater ra Boolean Specifies that the remote offset should be used if it is greater than the consolidated offset. This is equivalent to the -ra option. See RemoteProgressGreater synchronization profile option.
RemoteProgressLess rb Boolean Specifies that the remote offset should be used if it is less than the consolidated offset (such as when the remote database has been restored from backup). This is equivalent to the -rb option. See RemoteProgressLess synchronization profile option.
Subscription s String Specifies the subscription(s) to synchronize. Subscription can only be specified once in a synchronization profile. See Subscription synchronization profile option.
TransactionalUpload tu Boolean Specifies that each transaction on the remote database should be uploaded as a separate transaction within one synchronization. See TransactionalUpload synchronization profile option.
UpdateGenNum bg Boolean When creating a download file, this option creates a file that can be used with remote databases that have not yet synchronized. See UpdateGenNum synchronization profile option.
UploadOnly uo Boolean Specifies that synchronization only includes an upload, and that no downloads occur. See UploadOnly synchronization profile option.
UploadRowCnt urc Integer Specifies an estimate of the number of rows to be uploaded in a synchronization. See UploadRowCnt synchronization profile option.
Verbosity String (a comma separated list of options)

Controls dbmlsync verbosity. Similar to the Verbosity synchronization profile option.

The value must be a comma separated list of one or more of the following options, each of which corresponds to an existing -v option as described below:

  • BASIC - equivalent to -v
  • HIGH - equivalent to -v+
  • CONNECT_STR - equivalent to -vc
  • ROW_CNT - equivalent to -vn
  • OPTIONS - equivalent to -vo
  • ML_PASSWORD - equivalent to -vp
  • ROW_DATA - equivalent to -vr
