C Tables in the BDSS Data Stores

This appendix lists the BDSS tables.

This appendix includes the following topics:

C.1 Overview of BDSS Tables

This appendix lists the tables that store data for such BDSS-related components as PIM servers, connectors, domains, and filters.

C.2 PIM_SERVER_INSTANCES

The PIM_SERVER_INSTANCES table (Table C-1) represents an instance of a PIM server, not a type of PIM Server.

Table C-1 PIM_SERVER_INSTANCES Table

Column Type

CONNECTOR_ID

Number

NAME

VARCHAR2[100]


Unique Constraints

PIM_SERVER_INSTANCES_UK1 on CONNECTOR_ID and NAME

C.3 CONNECTORS

The CONNECTORS table (Table C-2) stores data that represents a type of connector grouping. This table includes the SUPPORTS_EVENTS_FLG and USER_EVENT_FLG columns, which enable the Hub to synchronize only users with changes, rather than synchronizing all users regardless of whether the users have changed data or not. The SUPPORTS_EVENTS_FLG enables a connector to determine that a change has been made to a user's data and can send a message to the Hub telling it to synchronize the user. The USER_EVENT_FLG enables the Hub to synchronize the user immediately or during the next synchronization cycle.

Table C-2 CONNECTORS Table

Column Type Comment

NAME

VARCHAR2[100]

The name of the connector. This name, which must be unique across BDSS, is used (along with a connector user ID) to uniquely identify a connector user.

SERVER_TYPE_CD

Number

The foreign key to the LOVS table for a PIM server type

MAX_SYNC_LVL_CD

Number

The foreign Key to the LOVS table to a synchronization level (SYNC_LVL) synchronization level

ENABLED_FLG

VARCHAR2[1]

A flag that determines if this connector is enabled

SYNC_EVENTS_ENABLED_FLG

VARCHAR2[1]

A flag that determines if this connector supports user synchronization notification events

SUPPORTS_EVENTS_FLG

VARCHAR2[1]

A flag that determines if the Hub synchronizes INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE events for a connector user. Setting this flag to T (true) notifies the Hub that it should synchronize a user's data when it has been changed. When this flag is set to T, the Hub synchronizes the user data independent of a synchronization session for the user.

USER_EVENT_FLG

VARCHAR2[1]

A flag that determines if the connector sends notifications to the Hub when an INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE event occurs for a connector user. The Hub uses this flag to initiate a synchronization session for the user.

The CONN_INSTANCES table (Table C-3) stores the values for a connector instance.

Table C-3 CONN_INSTANCES Table
