PullSubscription.PublicationName Property

Gets or sets the name of the publication to which the subscription subscribes.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo.dll)

public string PublicationName { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
A String value.

PublicationName is a required property and must be set before the subscription is created on the server. Once the subscription registration exists on the server, the PublicationName property cannot be changed.

The PublicationName property can only be retrieved by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Subscriber or by members of the db_owner fixed database role on the subscription database.

The PublicationName property can only be set by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Subscriber or by members of the db_owner fixed database role on the subscription database.

Retrieving the PublicationName property is equivalent to executing sp_helppullsubscription (Transact-SQL) or sp_helpmergepullsubscription (Transact-SQL).

Setting the PublicationName property is equivalent to executing sp_addpullsubscription (Transact-SQL) or sp_addmergepullsubscription (Transact-SQL).

The PublicationName property is available with SQL Server 7.0, SQL Server 2000, and SQL Server 2005.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the .NET Framework.
