Subject: Replication Rule - Send Transactions to Configured Locations - Handle NO CONFIGURED LOCATIONS

When configuring location filters on Replication servers, we define which locations will receive the transactions.

In some cases, we want to use Location filters, however, we also want to set up a server that receives all location transactions, for example, a Reporting Server.

To achieve this, we can configure the Reporting server as a Branch, and leave the Locations BLANK. 

The current version stops all transactions from going into the Reporting server.

If we turn off the rule for the location filter, all transactions go to all branches.

To resolve this, can we implement the condition:

  1. If no locations are configured, we send all transactions

System test revealed that when doing compare data with a table that required Location, we get a syntax error.

The issue was caused by "Compare Data by Table" not having any configured locations. 

Corrected the issue by setting "ALL" locations for tables that require a location.
