Declaring a data page as large

Improve data synchronization in your offline-enabled mobile app by declaring a data page as large. Large data pages synchronize only new or altered records instead of synchronizing the entire data page, which results in a smoother user experience at run time.

  1. Create and configure a data page that contains large amounts of data.
    As a minimum requirement to ensure that your offline-enabled app works as expected, declare all data pages larger than 5 MB as large data pages. For best performance, declare all data pages larger than 1 MB as large data pages.

    For more information, see Sourcing large data pages from a report definition and Sourcing large data pages from a connector, activity, or data transform.

  2. Determine which elements are part of your offline-enabled mobile app package by creating offline configuration templates.

    For more information, see Creating offline configuration templates.

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click Configure Mobile Offline configuration .

  2. On the Offline Configuration tab, in the Configuration Template section, click the template that you want to use with your offline-enabled app.

  3. On the Allow list tab, add the data page to the list of offline-supported components:

    1. Select the data page component category by clicking Data pages.

    2. In the Data pages section, in the Select data pages list, select the name of the data page.
