How to: Delete a Push Subscription (RMO Programming)

You can delete push subscriptions programmatically by using Replication Management Objects (RMO). The RMO classes that you use to delete a push subscription depend on the type of publication to which the push subscription is subscribed.

To delete a push subscription to a snapshot or transactional publication

  1. Create a connection to the Subscriber by using the ServerConnection class.

  2. Create an instance of the TransSubscription class.

  3. Set the PublicationName, SubscriptionDBName, SubscriberName, and DatabaseName properties.

  4. Set the ServerConnection from step 1 for the ConnectionContext property.

  5. Check the IsExistingObject property to verify that the subscription exists. If the value of this property is false, either the subscription properties in step 2 were defined incorrectly or the subscription does not exist.

  6. Call the Remove method.

To delete a push subscription to a merge publication

  1. Create a connection to the Subscriber by using the ServerConnection class.

  2. Create an instance of the MergeSubscription class.

  3. Set the PublicationName, SubscriptionDBName, SubscriberName, and DatabaseName properties.

  4. Set the ServerConnection from step 1 for the ConnectionContext property.

  5. Check the IsExistingObject property to verify that the subscription exists. If the value of this property is false, either the subscription properties in step 2 were defined incorrectly or the subscription does not exist.

  6. Call the Remove method.

This example deletes a push subscription to a transactional publication.

			// Define the Publisher, publication, and databases.
			string publicationName = "AdvWorksProductTran";
			string publisherName = publisherInstance;
			string subscriberName = subscriberInstance;
			string subscriptionDbName = "AdventureWorksReplica";
			string publicationDbName = "AdventureWorks";

			//Create a connection to the Publisher.
			ServerConnection conn = new ServerConnection(publisherName);

			// Create the objects that we need.
			TransSubscription subscription;

			try
			{
				// Connect to the Subscriber.
				conn.Connect();

				// Define the pull subscription.
				subscription = new TransSubscription();
				subscription.ConnectionContext = conn;
				subscription.SubscriberName = subscriberName;
				subscription.PublicationName = publicationName;
				subscription.SubscriptionDBName = subscriptionDbName;
				subscription.DatabaseName = publicationDbName;

				// Delete the pull subscription, if it exists.
				if (subscription.IsExistingObject)
				{
					// Delete the pull subscription at the Subscriber.
					subscription.Remove();
				}
				else
				{
					throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
						"The subscription to {0} does not exist on {1}",
						publicationName, subscriberName));
				}
			}
			catch (Exception ex)
			{
				// Implement the appropriate error handling here.
				throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
					"The subscription to {0} could not be deleted.", publicationName), ex);
			}
			finally
			{
				conn.Disconnect();
			}


' Define the Publisher, publication, and databases.
Dim publicationName As String = "AdvWorksProductTran"
Dim publisherName As String = publisherInstance
Dim subscriberName As String = subscriberInstance
Dim subscriptionDbName As String = "AdventureWorksReplica"

'Create a connection to the Publisher.

    subscription.DatabaseName = publicationDbName

    ' Delete the pull subscription, if it exists.
    If subscription.IsExistingObject Then

        ' Delete the pull subscription at the Subscriber.
        subscription.Remove()
    Else
        Throw New ApplicationException(String.Format( _

This example deletes a push subscription to a merge publication.

			//Create a connection to the Publisher.
			ServerConnection conn = new ServerConnection(publisherName);

			// Create the objects that we need.
			MergeSubscription subscription;

			try
			{
				// Connect to the Subscriber.
				conn.Connect();

				// Define the pull subscription.
				subscription = new MergeSubscription();
				subscription.ConnectionContext = conn;
				subscription.SubscriberName = subscriberName;
				subscription.PublicationName = publicationName;
				subscription.SubscriptionDBName = subscriptionDbName;
				subscription.DatabaseName = publicationDbName;

				// Delete the pull subscription, if it exists.
