Extremely important is the matching of data between mobile database and server database. Generally speaking, there is no need to worry about synchronization, because the data is automatically synchronized in the background.
First of all, it is important to note that the synchronization is configured in the Settings. A prerequisite for successful synchronization is that the configured connection is available. This is done via the https port 443, which must be opened on the server side. If the prerequisites are met, the following triggers for synchronization will occur:
- A registration at the app takes place
- Wiping down in the app
- The synchronization is started in the app’s settings
- a record is changed in one of the two databases
Which data status is synchronized?
In Password Safe every field in a record has a time stamp. During synchronization, these time stamps are checked and the newer field is written to the other database.
Assuming that the field “User name” is changed in the FullClient and the field “Password” in the app, you have different data states on both devices. After a synchronization you will get the changed user name and the new password on both devices.
Settings for synchronization
The configuration is described in the chapter Settings
