sp_changesubscription (Transact-SQL)

Changes the properties of a snapshot or transactional push subscription or a pull subscription involved in queued updating transactional replication. To change properties of all other types of pull subscriptions, use sp_change_subscription_properties (Transact-SQL). sp_changesubscription is executed at the Publisher on the publication database.

Security note Security Note

When configuring a Publisher with a remote Distributor, the values supplied for all parameters, including job_login and job_password, are sent to the Distributor as plain text. You should encrypt the connection between the Publisher and its remote Distributor before executing this stored procedure. For more information, see Enable Encrypted Connections to the Database Engine (SQL Server Configuration Manager).
