CreationScriptOptions Enumeration

Enumerates schema option values for published articles.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

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

Members

Member name Description
DisableScripting Object creation scripts are not generated by the Snapshot Agent. You must specify a user-supplied script file to define the object at the Subscriber for CreationScript.
PrimaryObject Generates a creation script (CREATE TABLE, CREATE PROCEDURE, and so on) for the published object.
CustomProcedures Includes the generation of custom stored procedures. This option is only valid for the TransArticle object. You must also specify InsertCommand, UpdateCommand, and DeleteCommand.
Identity Includes the creation of identity columns. This option is supported only for TransArticle objects and only for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and later releases. For more information, see Replicating Identity Columns.
KeepTimestamp Replicates timestamp columns. Without this option, timestamp columns are created on the Subscriber as binary(16) columns. This option is supported only for TransArticle objects.
ClusteredIndexes Includes the creation of a corresponding clustered index.
UserDefinedTypesToBaseTypes Converts user-defined data types columns at the Publisher to base SQL Server data type columns at the Subscriber. This option is not supported for non-SQL Server Publishers.
NonClusteredIndexes Includes the creation of nonclustered indexes.
DriPrimaryKey Includes the creation of primary key constraints.
UserTriggers Includes the creation of user-defined triggers.
DriForeignKeys Includes the creation of foreign key constraints to all referenced tables that are included in the publication.
DriChecks Includes the creation CHECK constraints.
DriDefaults Includes the creation column defaults.
Collation Includes the definition of a column-level collation.
ExtendedProperties Includes the extended properties associated with the database object being published.
DriUniqueKeys Includes the creation of unique keys.
PrimaryKeyUniqueKeyAsConstraints Generates ALTER TABLE statements when replicating constraints.
MarkReplicatedCheckConstraintsAsNotForReplication Includes the NOT FOR REPLICATION clause when creating CHECK constraints so that the constraints are not enforced during synchronization. For more information, see Controlling Constraints, Identities, and Triggers with NOT FOR REPLICATION.
MarkReplicatedForeignKeyConstraintsAsNotForReplication Includes the NOT FOR REPLICATION clause when creating FOREIGN KEY constraints so that the constraints are not enforced during synchronization. For more information, see Controlling Constraints, Identities, and Triggers with NOT FOR REPLICATION.
FileGroups Includes the filegroups associated with a partitioned table or index.
NoteNote
The underlying filegroup layout must be created at the subscriber before the initial snapshot is applied.
TablePartitioningScheme Includes the partition scheme associated with a partitioned table.
NoteNote
The underlying partition scheme must be created at the subscriber before the initial snapshot is applied.
IndexPartitioningSchemes Includes the partition scheme associated with a partitioned index.
NoteNote
The underlying partition scheme must be created at the subscriber before the initial snapshot is applied.
Statistics Includes user-defined table statistics.
DefaultBindings Includes default bindings and creation of the bound defaults.
RuleBindings Includes rule bindings and creation of the bound rules.
FullTextIndex Includes full-text indexes.
NoXmlSchemaCollections XML schema collections bound to xml columns are not included.
XmlIndexes Includes XML indexes.
Schema Generates any schemas not already present on the subscriber.
XmlToNText xml columns are replicated to the Subscriber as ntext.
MaxTypesToMatchingNonMaxTypes Converts nvarchar(max), varchar(max), and varbinary(max) to ntext, text, and image data types, which are supported on earlier versions of SQL Server.
Permissions Includes permissions defined on the published object.
AttemptToDropNonArticleDependencies At the Subscriber, attempts to drop dependencies to any objects that are not part of the publication.
FileStreamAttribute Use this option to replicate the FILESTREAM attribute if it is specified on varbinary(max) columns. Do not specify this option if you are replicating tables to SQL Server 2005 Subscribers. Replicating tables that have FILESTREAM columns to SQL Server 2000 Subscribers is not supported, regardless of how this schema option is set.
NewDateTimeTypesToStrings Converts date and time data types (date, time, datetimeoffset, and datetime2) introduced in SQL Server 2008 to data types that are supported on earlier versions of SQL Server. For information about how these types are mapped, see the "Mapping New Data Types for Earlier Versions" section in Using Multiple Versions of SQL Server in a Replication Topology.
StorageCompressionSetting Replicates the compression option for data and indexes. For more information, see Creating Compressed Tables and Indexes.
LargeUserDefinedTypesToVarBinaryMax Converts common language runtime (CLR) user-defined types (UDTs) that are larger than 8000 bytes to varbinary(max) so that columns of type UDT can be replicated to Subscribers that are running SQL Server 2005.
HierarchyIdToVarBinaryMax Converts the hierarchyid data type to varbinary(max) so that columns of type hierarchyid can be replicated to Subscribers that are running SQL Server 2005. For more information about how to use hierarchyid columns in replicated tables, see hierarchyid (Transact-SQL).
FilteredIndexes Replicates any filtered indexes on the table. For more information about filtered indexes, see Filtered Index Design Guidelines.
FileStreamDataSpace Set this option to store FILESTREAM data on its own filegroup at the Subscriber. If this option is not set, FILESTREAM data is stored on the default filegroup. Replication does not create filegroups; therefore, if you set this option, you must create the filegroup before you apply the snapshot at the Subscriber. For more information about how to create objects before you apply the snapshot, see Executing Scripts Before and After the Snapshot Is Applied.
SpatialTypesToVarBinaryMax Converts the geography and geometry data types to varbinary(max) so that columns of these types can be replicated to Subscribers that are running SQL Server 2005.
SpatialIndexes Replicates indexes on columns of type geography and geometry.
SparseAttribute Replicates the SPARSE attribute for columns. For more information about this attribute, see Using Sparse Columns.

Remarks

The schema options for an article control how the published object will created at the Subscriber, and affect how the snapshot script files are generated. For more information, see Publishing Data and Database Objects.

Values of the CreationScriptOptions enumeration are equivalent to values of the **@schema\_option** parameter of sp_addarticle (Transact-SQL) and sp_addmergearticle (Transact-SQL).

The CreationScriptOptions enumeration supports the FlagsAttribute option which allows bitwise combination of enumeration values.

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