Synchronization Configuration

The synchronization is detailed in the configuration file, so it's really easy to setup, change, and update with out re-compiling.  In the configuration file you will define:  

  • Local Database connection string
  • Azure Database connection string
  • The Scope name
  • All the tables that must be include in the sync separated by a comma
  • Number of retention days that the metadata should by kept

Here a sample of a configuration file

    <add name="LocalConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=localhost\sqlexpress;Initial Catalog=MyLocalDatabase;Integrated Security=True"/>
    <add name="CloudConnectionString" connectionString=",1433;Database=MyDatabaseName;User ID=MyAdmin@aaaaaaaa;Password=MyPassword;Trusted_Connection=False;Encrypt=True;"/>
    <add key="SyncScopeName" value="Test"/>
    <add key="TablesToSync" value="Table1,Table2"/>
    <add key="DaysOfRetention" value="30"/>


Using the application

The application may be called by passing different parameter :

  • setup: Used only once and creates the tables and tools on both databases. The main database is SQL Server.
  • reset: Resets the Meta data for the current scope.
  • clean: It Deletes the Meta data for the current scope older than the "DaysOfRetention" contained in the configuration file.
  • delete: It Deletes ALL related tables in Sync Framework.
  • sync: It Performs bidirectional synchronization.


Simple call


UniSync.exe -sync


Note : 
If no parameter is passed then sync as the default synchronization is taking place.
