DbConflictType Enumeration

Defines the types of conflicts that can occur during synchronization.

Namespace: Microsoft.Synchronization.Data
Assembly: Microsoft.Synchronization.Data (in microsoft.synchronization.data.dll)

public enum DbConflictType

 Member nameDescription
ErrorsOccurredThe peer database threw an exception while applying a change. 
LocalCleanedupDeleteRemoteUpdateThe local peer deleted a row that the remote peer updated, and the metadata for that row was cleaned up. 
LocalDeleteRemoteDeleteThe local and remote peers both deleted the same row. 
LocalDeleteRemoteUpdateThe local peer deleted a row that the remote peer updated. 
LocalInsertRemoteInsertThe local and remote peers both inserted a row that has the same primary key value. This caused a primary key violation. 
LocalUpdateRemoteDeleteThe local peer updated a row that the remote peer deleted. 
LocalUpdateRemoteUpdateThe local and remote peers both updated the same row. 

In Sync Framework, conflicts and errors are detected at the level of the row. A row is in conflict when it was changed at more than one node between synchronizations. Errors during synchronization typically involve a constraint violation, such as a duplicate primary key. For more information, see How to: Handle Data Conflicts and Errors for Collaborative Synchronization (SQL Server).

The following code examples show how update-update conflicts can be processed in an ApplyChangeFailed event handler. In the example, the conflicting rows are displayed to the console with an option to specify which row should win the conflict. To view this code in the context of a complete example, see How to: Handle Data Conflicts and Errors for Collaborative Synchronization (SQL Server).
