How are SFx 2.1 *_tracking tables maintained in Sql Server 2008 (w/o CT)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was surprised to find that SFx provisioning did not create any triggers in my database ... I thought the _tracking tables were maintained with triggers ...

    How are the _tracking tables maintained?

  • Sync Fx should have created triggers (1 each for insert/update/delete) for each table in your scope. if these were not created then somethings wrong with the provisioning.

  • Now I see them ...

    SQL Server 2008 CT has a setting for how long CT information is retained before it is automatically removed ... how does this happen w/o CT?  For example, _tracking table records that track deletes ... how long do they stay in the _tracking table and what triggers them to get deleted?

  • you can specify retention and metadata cleanup via the API, see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee617373(v=SQL.110).aspx
