Deleted records in reappear during sync RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a server and multiple clients who sync with the server often. The problem I am having is:

    Client A and B download the server db locally.

    Client A deletes a record, syncs: server gets the changes (deletes).

    Client B still has this record locally. He updates the record and syncs to server: THE DELETED RECORD REAPPEARS in the server.

    I am using a custom sync provider and not sure what I am missing here! Any help would be appreciated!

  • Hi,

    I assume that yourcustom provider is derviced from KnowledgeSyncProvider. Please check below points in your implementation:

    1. Make sure the same in client B is not changed after syncing it from Server

    2. When a change is sync from server to client, do you increase its update version with local timestamp even it is not a conflict? You should directly apply the incoming update version in this case.

    3. When syncing from client A to Server, check if the delete item is written in your metadata store with tombstone flag and new update version from Client A.
