About this task
You must specify the table to which the subscriber wants to subscribe and then activate the subscription.
Right-click the schema that corresponds to the source table and select
Add CDC. The Create Subscriber and Execute SQL
Script dialog box displays. The long name and the short name of the
source table are both displayed in this dialog box.
Warning: The source table to be monitored should have a primary key so that the CDC system can identify the lines on which changes have been done. You cannot set up a CDC environment if the schema of your source table does not have a primary key.In this example, since the long name CUSTOMERS does not exceed 10 characters, the short name reads the same as the long name.
- In the Subscriber Name field, enter the name you want to give the subscriber. By default, the subscriber name is APP1.
Click Execute and then Close.
