TransSubscription Class

Represents a push subscription to a transactional or snapshot publication.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo (in microsoft.sqlserver.rmo.dll)

public sealed class TransSubscription : Subscription
public final class TransSubscription extends Subscription
public final class TransSubscription extends Subscription

When configuring a Publisher with a remote Distributor, the values supplied for all parameters, including SynchronizationAgentProcessSecurity, are sent to the Distributor as plain text. You should encrypt the connection between the Publisher and its remote Distributor before calling the Create method. For more information, see Encrypting Connections to SQL Server.

When the subscription belongs to a non-SQL Server Publisher, the ConnectionContext property is set to the Distributor instead of Publisher, the DatabaseName property is set to the distribution database instead of the publication database, and the PublisherName property is set to the name of the non-SQL Server Publisher.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the .NET Framework.

// 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(subscriberName);

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

    // Connect to the Publisher.

    // Ensure that the publication exists and that 
    // it supports push subscriptions.
    publication = new TransPublication();
    publication.Name = publicationName;
    publication.DatabaseName = publicationDbName;
    publication.ConnectionContext = conn;

    if (publication.IsExistingObject)
        if ((publication.Attributes & PublicationAttributes.AllowPush) == 0)
            publication.Attributes |= PublicationAttributes.AllowPush;

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

        // Specify the Windows login credentials for the Distribution Agent job.
        subscription.SynchronizationAgentProcessSecurity.Login = winLogin;
        subscription.SynchronizationAgentProcessSecurity.Password = winPassword;

        // By default, subscriptions to transactional publications are synchronized 
        // continuously, but in this case we only want to synchronize on demand.
        subscription.AgentSchedule.FrequencyType = ScheduleFrequencyType.OnDemand;
        // Create the push subscription.
        // Do something here if the publication does not exist.
        throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
            "The publication '{0}' does not exist on {1}.",
            publicationName, publisherName));
catch (Exception ex)
    // Implement the appropriate error handling here.
    throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
        "The subscription to {0} could not be created.", publicationName), ex);

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
