Require verification of a digital signature before merging
Replication signature verification constants are used to specify whether to verify a digital signature before using a resolver in merge replication.
Enter information needed by the resolver
Enter the name of the stored procedure to call when using the stored procedure resolver and enter any parameters or other information it requires. You can also enter information required by other custom resolvers.
Allow Subscribers to resolve conflicts interactively during on-demand synchronizations
Activated at run-time, the Interactive Resolver displays data for each conflicting row, and provides options for viewing and editing the conflict data, and resolving each conflict individually. If resolving conflicts interactively is allowed, you must also specify whether to resolve conflicts interactively when a subscription is created.
