Editing the Conflicting Document Defaults
The settings options are similar to those explained above for the default configuration.
Note: the Limit # of revisions to keep by age value is set to
45 Days by default.
This means that revisions created for conflicting documents will start to be purged after 45 days,
whenever their parent documents are modified.
Conflicting documents example:
For this example, we created a conflict by replicating into the database a document with an ID similar to that of a local document.
Revisions will be created when the documents enter a conflict and when the conflict is resolved.
So in this case, three revisions were created:
- when the replicated document arrived and entered a conflict state.
- when the local document entered a conflict state on the arrival of the replicated document.
- when the conflict was resolved by replacing the local document with the replicated one.
In this example, the conflict was resolved by placing the replicated version as the current document.
Learn more about conflict resolution here.
To see these revisions, open the document's Revisions tab.
The revision state is indicated by:
- A red title at the top (i.e. "Conflict revision" or "Resolved revision").
- An icon next to the revision's creation time in the right Properties pane.
- A flag in the revision's
@flags metadata property (i.e. "Conflicted" or "Resolved").
