2.2.3.29.2 Collection (Sync)

The Collection element is a required child element of the Collections element in Sync command requests, and an optional child element in Sync command responses. In both contexts, it contains commands and options that apply to a particular collection.

All elements referenced in this section are defined in the AirSync namespace.

The Collection element contains identification information (CollectionId), synchronization state (SyncKey), commands (GetChanges, Commands), and options (WindowSize, Options, DeletesAsMoves, MoreAvailable).

There is a strict ordering of the XML elements within a Collection node in a Sync command request. The order is as follows:

1. SyncKey

2. CollectionId

3. Supported

4. DeletesAsMoves

5. GetChanges

6. WindowSize

7. ConversationMode

8. Options

9. Commands

A single Collections element can contain multiple Collection elements. Therefore, each Collection does not require its own Sync command. That is, a Sync command request can specify multiple collections to be synchronized.

Protocol Versions

The following table specifies the protocol versions that support this element. The client indicates the protocol version being used by setting either the MS-ASProtocolVersion header, as specified in [MS-ASHTTP] section 2.2.1.1.2.6, or the Protocol version field, as specified in [MS-ASHTTP] section 2.2.1.1.1.1, in the request.
