Is used to verify a join filter between two tables to determine if the join filter clause is valid. This stored procedure also returns information about the supplied join filter, including if it can be used with precomputed partitions for the given table. This stored procedure is executed at the Publisher on the publication. For more information, see Optimize Parameterized Filter Performance with Precomputed Partitions.
sp_check_join_filter [ @filtered_table = ] 'filtered_table' , [@join_table = ] 'join_table' , [ @join_filterclause = ] 'join_filterclause'
[ @filtered_table= ] 'filtered_table'
Is the name of a filtered table. filtered_table is nvarchar(400), with no default.
[ @join_table= ] 'join_table'
Is the name of a table being joined to filtered_table. join_table is nvarchar(400), with no default.
[ @join_filterclause = ] 'join_filterclause'
Is the join filter clause being tested. join_filterclause is nvarchar(1000), with no default.
|Column name||Data type||Description|
|can_use_partition_groups||bit||Is if the publication qualifies for precomputed partitions; where 1 means that precomupted partitions can be used, and 0 means that they cannot be used.|
|has_dynamic_filters||bit||Is if the supplied filter clause includes at least one parameterized filtering function; where 1 means that a parameterized filtering function is used, and 0 means that such a function is not used.|
|dynamic_filters_function_list||nvarchar(500)||List of the functions in the filter clause that define a parameterized filter for an article, where each function is separated by a semi-colon.|
|uses_host_name||bit||If the HOST_NAME() function is used in the filter clause, where 1 means that this function is present.|
|uses_suser_sname||bit||If the SUSER_SNAME() function is used in the filter clause, where 1 means that this function is present.|
Return Code Values
0 (success) or 1 (failure)
sp_check_join_filter is used in merge replication.
sp_check_join_filter can be executed against any related tables even if they are not published. This stored procedure can be used to verify a join filter clause before defining a join filter between two articles.
Only members of the sysadmin fixed server role or db_owner fixed database role can execute sp_check_join_filter.
