Invoke-AzStorageSyncChangeDetection

This command can be used to manually initiate the detection of namespace changes. It can be targeted to the entire share, subfolder or set of files. When running the command with the -DirectoryPath or -Path parameters, a maximum of 10,000 items can be detected. If the scope of changes is known to you, limit the execution of this command to parts of the namespace, so change detection can finish quickly and within the 10,000 item limit. Alternatively, you can avoid the item limit by running the cmdlet without these parameters, invoking share-level change detection.

Note

If run with -DirectoryPath or -Path parameters, the command will not detect the following changes in the Azure file share:

  • Files that are deleted.
  • Files that are moved out of the share.
  • Files that are deleted and created with the same name.

If share-level change detection is invoked, all of these changes will be detected. These changes will also be detected when the scheduled change detection job runs.

Description

Periodically, Azure File Sync checks the namespace inside a syncing Azure file share for changes that came into the file share by other means than sync. The goal is to identify these changes and ultimately sync them to connected servers. This command can be used to manually initiate the detection of namespaces changes. It can be targeted to the entire share, subfolder or set of files. If the scope of changes is known to you, limit the execution of this command to parts of the namespace, so individual item change detection can finish quickly and within the 10,000 items limit. Otherwise, run the command without the -DirectoryPath or -Path parameters to invoke full share-level change detection.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Invoke-AzStorageSyncChangeDetection -ResourceGroupName "myResourceGroup" -StorageSyncServiceName "myStorageSyncServiceName" -SyncGroupName "mySyncGroupName" -CloudEndpointName "b38fc242-8100-4807-89d0-399cef5863bf" -Path "Data","Reporting\Templates"

In this example, change detection is run in the "Data" and "Reporting\Templates" directories of a syncing Azure file share. All paths are relative to the root of the Azure file share namespace.

Example 2

PS C:\> Invoke-AzStorageSyncChangeDetection -ResourceGroupName "myResourceGroup" -StorageSyncServiceName "myStorageSyncServiceName" -SyncGroupName "mySyncGroupName" -CloudEndpointName "b38fc242-8100-4807-89d0-399cef5863bf" -Path "Data\results.xslx","Reporting\Templates\generated.pptx"

In this example, change detection is run for a set of files that are known to the command caller to have changed. The goal is to have Azure file sync detect and sync these changes as well.

Example 3

PS C:\> Invoke-AzStorageSyncChangeDetection -ResourceGroupName "myResourceGroup" -StorageSyncServiceName "myStorageSyncServiceName" -SyncGroupName "mySyncGroupName" -CloudEndpointName "b38fc242-8100-4807-89d0-399cef5863bf" -DirectoryPath "Examples" -Recursive

In this example, change detection is run for the "Examples" directory and will recursively detect changes in subdirectories. Keep in mind the cmdlet will fail if the path contains more than 10,000 items. If the path contains more than 10,000 items, run the command on sub-parts of the namespace.

Example 4

PS C:\> Invoke-AzStorageSyncChangeDetection -ResourceGroupName "myResourceGroup" -StorageSyncServiceName "myStorageSyncServiceName" -SyncGroupName "mySyncGroupName" -CloudEndpointName "b38fc242-8100-4807-89d0-399cef5863bf"

In this example, neither -DirectoryPath nor -Path has been passed to the command. This will invoke change detection on the entire file share.
