Batch Batch Batch Batch 1

All pending changes are saved in a single batch request.

ContinueOnError ContinueOnError ContinueOnError ContinueOnError 2

Pending changes are saved by using multiple requests to the server, and the operation continues after an error occurs.

None None None None 0

Pending changes are saved by using multiple requests to the server, but the operation stops on the first failure (default).

ReplaceOnUpdate ReplaceOnUpdate ReplaceOnUpdate ReplaceOnUpdate 4

Pending updates are made by replacing all values of the entity in the data source with values from the updated entity (HTTP PUT) instead of just updating changed values (HTTP MERGE), which is the default behavior.


When the ContinueOnError option is set, subsequent operations are still tried even after an error occurs.

When batching is not used, the DataServiceResponse.BatchHeaders property returns an empty collection, and the DataServiceResponse.BatchStatusCode property is zero.

You cannot set both Batch and ContinueOnError at the same time.
