CData Sync



Replicate multiple Microsoft Teams accounts to one or many databases.

CData Sync for Microsoft Teams is a stand-alone application that provides solutions for a variety of replication scenarios such as replicating sandbox and production instances into your database. Both Sync for Windows and Sync for Java include a command-line interface (CLI) that makes it easy to manage multiple Microsoft Teams connections. In this article we show how to use the CLI to replicate multiple Microsoft Teams accounts.

Configure Microsoft Teams Connections

You can save connection and email notification settings in an XML configuration file. To replicate multiple Microsoft Teams accounts, use multiple configuration files. Below is an example configuration to replicate Microsoft Teams to SQLite:

Windows

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>System.Data.SQLite</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>OAuthClientId=MyApplicationId;OAuthClientSecret=MySecretKey;CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> <TaskSchedulerStartTime>09:51</TaskSchedulerStartTime> <TaskSchedulerInterval>Never</TaskSchedulerInterval> </CDataSync>

Java

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>org.sqlite.JDBC</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>OAuthClientId=MyApplicationId;OAuthClientSecret=MySecretKey;CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> </CDataSync>

You can connect to MS Teams using the embedded OAuth connectivity. When you connect, the MS Teams OAuth endpoint opens in your browser. Log in and grant permissions to complete the OAuth process. See the OAuth section in the online Help documentation for more information on other OAuth authentication flows.

Configure Queries for Each Microsoft Teams Instance

Sync enables you to control replication with standard SQL. The REPLICATE statement is a high-level command that caches and maintains a table in your database. You can define any SELECT query supported by the Microsoft Teams API. The statement below caches and incrementally updates a table of Microsoft Teams data:

REPLICATE Teams;

You can specify a file containing the replication queries you want to use to update a particular database. Separate replication statements with semicolons. The following options are useful if you are replicating multiple Microsoft Teams accounts into the same database:

You can use a different table prefix in the REPLICATE SELECT statement:

REPLICATE PROD_Teams SELECT * FROM Teams

Alternatively, you can use a different schema:

REPLICATE PROD.Teams SELECT * FROM Teams

Run Sync

After you have configured the connection strings and replication queries, you can run Sync with the following command-line options:

Windows

MSTeamsSync.exe -g MyProductionMSTeamsConfig.xml -f MyProductionMSTeamsSync.sql

Java

java -Xbootclasspath/p:c:\sqlitejdbc.jar -jar MSTeamsSync.jar -g MyProductionMSTeamsConfig.xml -f MyProductionMSTeamsSync.sql
