How to: Create a Pull Subscription (SQL Server Management Studio)

Create a pull subscription at the Publisher or the Subscriber using the New Subscription Wizard. Follow the pages in the wizard to:

  • Specify the Publisher and publication.

  • Select where replication agents will run. For a pull subscription, select Run each agent at its Subscriber (pull subscriptions) on the Distribution Agent Location page or Merge Agent Location page, depending on the type of publication.

  • Specify Subscribers and subscription databases.

  • Specify the logins and passwords used for connections made by replication agents:

    • For subscriptions to snapshot and transactional publications, specify credentials on the Distribution Agent Security page.

    • For subscriptions to merge publications, specify credentials on the Merge Agent Security page.

    For information about the permissions required by each agent, see Replication Agent Security Model.

  • Specify a synchronization schedule and when the Subscriber should be initialized.

  • Specify additional options for merge publications: subscription type; values for parameterized filtering; and information for synchronization through HTTPS if the publication is enabled for Web synchronization.

  • Specify additional options for transactional publications that allow updating subscriptions: whether Subscribers should commit changes at the Publisher immediately or write them to a queue; credentials used to connect from the Subscriber to the Publisher.

  • Optionally script the subscription.
