When you click Finish, the synchronization model is displayed in the right pane of SQL Central, where you can view, edit or deploy the model.

  • Test the synchronization model using the Test window.

  • Edit the mappings, events and authentication information.

  • Use the Deploy Synchronization Model Wizard to deploy the completed model.
