IKnowledgeSyncProvider interface

Represents a synchronization provider that uses knowledge to perform synchronization.


The IKnowledgeSyncProvider interface has these methods.

Method Description
IKnowledgeSyncProvider::BeginSession Notifies the provider that it is joining a synchronization session.
IKnowledgeSyncProvider::EndSession Notifies the provider that a synchronization session to which it was enlisted has finished.
IKnowledgeSyncProvider::GetChangeBatch Gets a change batch that contains item metadata for items that are not contained in the specified knowledge from the destination provider.
IKnowledgeSyncProvider::GetFullEnumerationChangeBatch Gets a change batch that contains item metadata for items that have IDs greater than the specified lower bound, as part of a full enumeration.
IKnowledgeSyncProvider::GetSyncBatchParameters Gets the requested number of item changes that will be included in change batches, and the current knowledge for the synchronization scope.
IKnowledgeSyncProvider::ProcessChangeBatch Processes a set of changes by detecting conflicts and applying changes to the item store.
IKnowledgeSyncProvider::ProcessFullEnumerationChangeBatch Processes a set of changes for a full enumeration by applying changes to the item store.


Typically, the first method that is called by a synchronization session is BeginSession. The last method is EndSession. All other IKnowledgeSyncProvider methods are called between these two methods.
