when you do an import using DataSynchro(Remote) it's possible to set an Application ID, but where is this Application ID stored?

In the SYNCHRO table.

But only if you have used the API function below

DataStore.SaveExternalRelation(EntityName, Key)

And if the DataSynchro option below is checked

  • Store the relation between the imported record and the Efficy record in the database (using a unique Application ID)

Hi Kristof,

I've done an import of Contacts/Companies for a Customer. But when I look at the SYNCHRO table, then there are no records for Contacts/Companies. Can you explain this?

Best regards,

Hi Kristof,

that API function is used but it's still I can't find the records in the SYNCHRO table.
A Second try
Also that is option is checked.
Then I give up, actually, I never use that. I don't like storing external keys outside the entity (in SYNCHRO table). Either I store them in the main table, or I create a category for legacy information like COMP$LEGACY and make fields for old information the client does not want to go lost, but doens't fit right away in the new fields
