How to: Specify Schema Options (SQL Server Management Studio)

Specify schema options, such as whether to copy constraints and triggers to Subscribers, on the Properties tab of the Article Properties - <Article> dialog box. This tab is available in the New Publication Wizard and the Publication Properties - <Publication> dialog box. For more information about using the wizard and accessing the dialog box, see How to: Create a Publication and Define Articles (SQL Server Management Studio) and How to: View and Modify Publication and Article Properties (SQL Server Management Studio). If you change schema options after a publication is created, you must generate a new snapshot.

For the complete list of schema options, see the @schema_option parameter of sp_addarticle (Transact-SQL) and sp_addmergearticle (Transact-SQL).

To specify schema options

  1. On the Articles Page of the New Publication Wizard or Publication Properties - <Publication> dialog box, select an article, and then click Article Properties.

  2. Select which articles schema option changes should apply to:

    • Click Set Properties of Highlighted <ObjectType> Article to launch the Article Properties - <ObjectName> dialog box; property changes made in this dialog box are applied only to the object that is highlighted in the object pane on the Articles page.

    • Click Set Properties of All <ObjectType> Articles to launch the Properties for All <ObjectType> Articles dialog box; property changes made in this dialog box are applied to all objects of that type in the object pane on the Articles page, including ones not yet selected for publication.

      NoteNote

      Property changes made in the Properties for All <ObjectType> Articles dialog box override any made previously in the Article Properties - <ObjectName> dialog box. If, for example, you want to set a number of defaults for all articles of an object type, but also want to set some properties for individual objects, set the defaults for all articles first. Then set the properties for the individual objects.

  3. In the Copy Objects and Settings to Subscriber and Destination Object sections of the Properties tab of the Article Properties - <Article> dialog box, specify values for the options.

  4. Modify any properties if necessary, and then click OK.

  5. If you are in the Publication Properties - <Publication> dialog box, click OK to save and close the dialog box.
