Upload Records to the Server
Records are uploaded to the server through two connection types: Wi-Fi and a user's cellular data plan.
- Wi-Fi – the usage library uses its HttpConversationManager session to POST records to the server.
- Cellular data – the usage library does not POST records to the server. Instead, the records are retained in the client database until the next time the app has a Wi-fi connection.
The SAP Cloud Platform mobile service for development and operations administrator controls the upload behavior via the Mobile Service for Development and Operations cockpit. The administrator can set a maximum threshold for client records to be stored on-device. Once the threshold is exceeded, the record upload is executed over cellular data.
