Azure SQL Data Sync truncate table RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to sync data from onprem to azure database

    if i truncate records in onprem and sync the records are still the same in azure

    i had to truncate table manually in azure

    then it works

    is that the correct approach? Do i need to trucate the trackiing tables too?

    Please let me know

  • A TRUNCATE isn't a DML command which produce data changes to sync, it is a DDL command and equals DROP Table + CREATE Table.

    So no data changes = nothing to sync.
