Define offlline settings for the selected application. Offline support enables client
applications to access back-end data without requiring a connection. When offline,
applications access data from an offline store on the client. The server moves data between
the back end and the client offline store.
Note Does not apply to Agentry applications.
The offline back-end connection settings determine how the server creates the initial offline
store database on the client, and how the server processes requests for updates from
the back end. You define offline back-end connection settings for an application by
importing a configuration file prepared by a developer. You cannot update the
settings using Management Cockpit. If you need to adjust any
settings, you can export the file and make the updates, then remove the current
configuration and re-import the file. You should only make updates to this file in
collaboration with the developer. For more information on the format of the
configuration file, see the Development
documentation, in the
Native OData Application Development
- iOS: see Developing iOS Offline OData Applications
- Android: see Developing Android Offline OData Applications.
- From the Management Cockpit, select .
- Select the back-end connection you want to configure offline settings for and click
Import Settings, then browse to select a
configuration file. Only INI type files can be imported.
The connection state changes to Configured and the connection settings
display in Connections Details. The
Defining Requests tab displays information on how
the server processes requests from the back end. You may want to collaborate
with the developer to update some of these settings if you are experiencing
performance problems with offline data. The Client
Indexes tab displays information about the indexes created
on the offline store client database.
- Click Save.
When the application goes offline for the first time, the offline store is
created on the client.
If you need to remove the current configuration in order to re-import a new
configuration, select the connection name and click Remove
