SQL Azure Data Sync Icon

To use SQL Data Sync (Preview) to synchronize your data across multiple databases you need to create a sync group which logically groups together two or more SQL databases. The topics in this section cover how to modify an existing sync group from the Azure management portal.

You access SQL Data Sync (Preview) via the SYNC tab under SQL Database at the Microsoft Azure Management portal. The SYNC tab is only available when you have one or more sync groups. See the topic How To: Create a Sync Group (SDS) for guidance on creating and modifying a sync group from this portal.
