Xamarin - Set Up Azure Offline Sync in C#

I have watched this tutorial on setting up offline sync for a Xamarin application using an Azure backend. I have a MySQL table on my Azure portal and I now wish to add the back-end calls to sync my local SQLite database with the MySQL cloud database.

I am not using the Easy Tables software used in the tutorial above, and I would like to use C# for the backend calls for my

MobileServiceClient
to talk to, where it calls methods such as:


  • await client.SyncContext.PushAsync();

  • await table.PullAsync("alltable", table.CreateQuery());

  • await table.InsertAsync(entry);



What are the steps to setting up the cloud syncing functionality from my SQLite store to my MySQL database?

Unfortunately MySQL is not compatible with Azure's IMobileServiceClient, you must change to using Azure SQL to use the inbuilt functions in IMobileServiceClient
