Summary: This paper describes the minimum permissions requirements for various synchronization operations using Microsoft Sync Framework with SQL Server products.
Microsoft® Sync Framework is a data synchronization platform that enables developers to synchronize with any kind of data over any protocol, including SQL Server databases. This article enumerates the permissions needed for provisioning a database for synchronization, and performing sync operations.
To provision a database for synchronization, the client must use credentials that have the following permissions:
- CREATE TABLE permission on the database being provisioned.
- CREATE PROCEDURE permission on the database being provisioned.
- SELECT and ALTER permissions on each user table.
- If no user tables exist, grant SELECT and ALTER permissions to the user table schema.
- AUTHORIZATION permission on the schema for all provision tracking tables.
After provisioning, the client must have the following permissions to perform synchronization tasks:
- EXECUTE permission on the database being synchronized.
- SELECT and UPDATE permission to the scope_info table.
- SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE permissions to each table if data table and stored procedures created by Microsoft Sync Framework are not in the same schema.
- SELECT and DELETE permission to each tracking table.
