sp_adddynamicsnapshot_job (Transact-SQL)

 

Applies To: SQL Server

Creates an agent job that generates a filtered data snapshot for a publication with parameterized row filters. This stored procedure is executed at the Publisher on the publication database. This stored procedure is used by an administrator to manually create filtered data snapshot jobs for Subscribers.

System_CAPS_ICON_note.jpg Note


In order for a filtered data snapshot job to be created, a standard snapshot job for the publication must already exist.

For more information, see Snapshots for Merge Publications with Parameterized Filters.

[ @publication=] 'publication'
Is the name of the publication to which the filtered data snapshot job is being added. publication is sysname, with no default.

[ @suser_sname= ] 'suser_sname'
Is the value used when creating a filtered data snapshot for a subscription that is filtered by the value of the SUSER_SNAME function at the Subscriber. suser_sname is sysname, with no default. suser_sname should be NULL if this function is not used to dynamically filter the publication.

[ @host_name= ] 'host_name'
Is the value used when creating a filtered data snapshot for a subscription that is filtered by the value of the HOST_NAME function at the Subscriber. host_name is sysname, with no default. host_name should be NULL if this function is not used to dynamically filter the publication.

[ @dynamic_snapshot_jobname= ] 'dynamic_snapshot_jobname'
Is the name of the filtered data snapshot job created. dynamic_snapshot_jobname is sysname, with default of NULL, and is an optional OUTPUT parameter. If specified, dynamic_snapshot_jobname must resolve to a unique job at the Distributor. If unspecified, a job name will be automatically generated and returned in the result set, where the name is created as follows:

'dyn_' + <name of the standard snapshot job> + <GUID>  

System_CAPS_ICON_note.jpg Note


When generating the name of the dynamic snapshot job, you may truncate the name of the standard snapshot job.

[ @dynamic_snapshot_jobid= ] 'dynamic_snapshot_jobid'
Is an identifier for the filtered data snapshot job created. dynamic_snapshot_jobid is uniqueidentifier, with default of NULL, and is an optional OUTPUT parameter.

[ @frequency_type=] frequency_type
Is the frequency with which to schedule the filtered data snapshot job. frequency_type is int, and can be one of these values.

ValueDescription
1One time
2On demand
4 (default)Daily
8Weekly
16Monthly
32Monthly relative
64Autostart
128Recurring

[ @frequency_interval = ] frequency_interval
Is the period (measured in days) when the filtered data snapshot job is executed. frequency_interval is int, with a default value of 1, and depends on the value of frequency_type.

Value of frequency_typeEffect on frequency_interval
1frequency_interval is unused.
4 (default)Every frequency_interval days, with a default of daily.
8frequency_interval is one or more of the following (combined with a | (Bitwise OR) (Transact-SQL) logical operator):

 1 = Sunday | 2 = Monday | 4 = Tuesday | 8 = Wednesday | 16 = Thursday | 32 = Friday | 64 = Saturday
16On the frequency_interval day of the month.
32frequency_interval is one of the following:

 1 = Sunday | 2 = Monday | 3 = Tuesday | 4 = Wednesday | 5 = Thursday | 6 = Friday | 7 = Saturday | 8 = Day | 9 = Weekday | 10 = Weekend day

[ @frequency_subday=] frequency_subday
Specifies the units for frequency_subday_interval. frequency_subday is int, and can be one of these values.

ValueDescription
1Once
2Second
4 (default)Minute
8Hour

[ @frequency_subday_interval=] frequency_subday_interval
Is the number of frequency_subday periods that occur between each execution of the job. frequency_subday_interval is int, with a default of 5.

[ @frequency_relative_interval=] frequency_relative_interval
Is the occurrence of the filtered data snapshot job in each month. This parameter is used when frequency_type is set to 32 (monthly relative). frequency_relative_interval is int, and can be one of these values.

ValueDescription
1 (default)First
2Second
4Third
8Fourth
16Last

[ @frequency_recurrence_factor=] frequency_recurrence_factor
Is the recurrence factor used by frequency_type. frequency_recurrence_factor is int, with a default of 0.

[ @active_start_date=] active_start_date
Is the date when the filtered data snapshot job is first scheduled, formatted as YYYYMMDD. active_start_date is int, with a default of NULL.

[ @active_end_date=] active_end_date
Is the date when the filtered data snapshot job stops being scheduled, formatted as YYYYMMDD. active_end_date is int, with a default of NULL.

[ @active_start_time_of_day=] active_start_time_of_day
Is the time of day when the filtered data snapshot job is first scheduled, formatted as HHMMSS. active_start_time_of_day is int, with a default of NULL.

[ @active_end_time_of_day=] active_end_time_of_day
Is the time of day when the filtered data snapshot job stops being scheduled, formatted as HHMMSS. active_end_time_of_day is int, with a default of NULL.
