sysmergeextendedarticlesview (Transact-SQL)


Applies To: SQL Server

The sysmergeextendedarticlesview view exposes article information. This view is stored in the publication database at the Publisher and subscription database at the Subscriber.

Column nameData typeDescription
namesysnameThe name of the article.
typetinyintIndicates the article type, which can be one of the following:

 10 = Table.

 32 = Proc schema only.

 64 = View schema only or indexed view schema only.

 128 = Function schema only.

 160 = Synonym schema only.

 1 = Drop - drops the table before re-creating it.

 2 = Delete - issues a delete based on the WHERE clause in the subset filter.

nicknameintThe nickname mapping for article identification.
column_trackingintIndicates whether column tracking is implemented for the article.
statustinyintIndicates the status of the article, which can be one of the following:

 1 = Unsynced - the initial processing script to publish the table will run the next time the Snapshot Agent runs.

 2 = Active - the initial processing script to publish the table has been run.

 5 = New_inactive - to be added.

 6 = New_active - to be added.
conflict_tablesysnameThe name of the local table that contains the conflicting records for the current article. This table is supplied for information only, and its contents may be modified or deleted by custom conflict resolution routines or directly by the administrator.

insert_procsysnameThe procedure used by the default conflict resolver to insert rows during synchronization.
update_procsysnameThe procedure used by the default conflict resolver to update rows during synchronization.
select_procsysnameThe name of an automatically generated stored procedure that the Merge Agent uses to accomplish locking, and finding columns and rows for an article.
schema_optionbinary(8)For the supported values of schema_option, see sp_addmergearticle (Transact-SQL).
destination_objectsysnameThe name of the table created at the Subscriber.
resolver_clsidnvarchar(50)The ID of the custom conflict resolver.
subset_filterclausenvarchar(1000)The filter clause for this article.
missing_col_countintThe number of missing columns.
missing_colsvarbinary(128)The bitmap of missing columns.
columnsvarbinary(128)Identified for informational purposes only. Not supported. Future compatibility is not guaranteed.
resolver_infonvarchar(255)Storage for additional information required by custom conflict resolvers.
view_sel_procnvarchar(290)The name of a stored procedure that the Merge Agent uses for doing the initial population of an article in a dynamically filtered publication, and for enumerating changed rows in any filtered publication.
gen_curintThe generate number for local changes to the base table of an article.
excluded_colsvarbinary(128)The bitmap of the columns excluded from the article when it is sent to the Subscriber.
excluded_col_countintThe number of columns excluded.
vertical_partitionintSpecifies whether column filtering is enabled on a table article. 0 indicates there is no vertical filtering and publishes all columns.
identity_supportintSpecifies whether automatic identity range handling is enabled. 1 means that identity range handling is enabled, and 0 means that there is no identity range support.
destination_ownersysnameThe name of the owner of the destination object.
before_image_objidintThe tracking table object ID. The tracking table contains certain key column values when a publication is configured to enable partition change optimizations.
before_view_objidintThe object ID of a view table. The view is on a table that tracks whether a row belonged at a particular Subscriber before it was deleted or updated. Applies only when a publication is created with @keep_partition_changes = true.
verify_resolver_signatureintSpecifies whether a digital signature is verified before using a resolver in merge replication:

 0 = Signature is not verified.

 1 = Signature is verified to see whether it is from a trusted source.
allow_interactive_resolverbitSpecifies whether the use of the Interactive Resolver on an article is enabled. 1 specifies that the Interactive Resolver is used on the article.
fast_multicol_updateprocbitSpecifies whether the Merge Agent has been enabled to apply changes to multiple columns in the same row in one UPDATE statement.

 0 = Issues a separate UPDATE for each column changed.

 1 = Issued on UPDATE statement which causes updates to occur to multiple columns in one statement.
check_permissionsintThe bitmap of the table-level permissions that will be verified when the Merge Agent applies changes to the Publisher. check_permissions can have one of these values:

 0x00 = Permissions are not checked.

 0x10 = Checks permissions at the Publisher before INSERTs made at a Subscriber can be uploaded.

 0x20 = Checks permissions at the Publisher before UPDATEs made at a Subscriber can be uploaded.

 0x40 = Checks permissions at the Publisher before DELETEs made at a Subscriber can be uploaded.
maxversion_at_cleanupintThe highest generation for which the metadata is cleaned up.
processing_orderintIndicates the processing order of articles in a merge publication; where a value of 0 indicated that the article is unordered, and articles are processed in order from lowest to highest value. If two articles have the same value, they are processed concurrently. For more information, see Specify the Processing Order of Merge Articles.
published_in_tran_pubbitIndicates that an article in a merge publication is also published in a transactional publication.

 0 = Article is not published in a transactional article.

 1 = Article is also published in a transactional article.
upload_optionstinyinyDefines whether changes can be made at or uploaded from the Subscriber, which can be one of the following values.

 0 = There are no restrictions on updates made at the Subscriber; all changes are uploaded to the Publisher.

 1 = Changes are allowed at the Subscriber, but they are not uploaded to the Publisher.

 2 = Changes are not allowed at the Subscriber.
lightweightbitIdentified for informational purposes only. Not supported. Future compatibility is not guaranteed.
delete_procsysnameThe procedure used by the default conflict resolver to delete rows during synchronization.
before_upd_view_objidintThe ID of the view of a table before updates.
delete_trackingbitIndicates if deletes are replicated.

 0 = Deletes are not replicated.

 1 = Deletes are replicated, which is the default behavior for merge replication.

When the value of delete_tracking is 0, rows deleted at the Subscriber must be manually removed at the Publisher, and rows deleted at the Publisher must be manually removed at the Subscriber.

Note: A value of 0 results in non-convergence.
compensate_for_errorsbitIndicates if compensating actions are taken when errors are encountered during synchronization.

 0 = Compensating actions are disabled.

 1 = Changes that cannot be applied at a Subscriber or Publisher always lead to compensating actions to undo these changes, which is the default behavior for merge replication.

Note: A value of 0 results in non-convergence.
pub_rangebigintThe publisher identity range size.
rangebigintThe size of the consecutive identity values that would be assigned to subscribers in an adjustment.
thresholdintThe identity range threshold percentage.
metadata_select_procsysnameThe name of the automatically generated stored procedure used to access metadata in the merge replication system tables.
stream_blob_columnsbitSpecifies if a data stream optimization is used when replicating binary large object columns. 1 means that the optimization will be attempted.
preserve_rowguidcolbitIndicates whether replication uses an existing rowguid column. A value of 1 means that an existing ROWGUIDCOL column is used. 0 means that replication added the ROWGUIDCOL column.
