Provide API’s to configure, manage and initiate sync

Allow on-premises or cloud-based applications to configure sync groups and initiate syncs.

        In environments where we want to allow schema changes we need to programmatic way to so that we can manually push these changes through the sync hub

        API triggered syncs are vital to a proper management process. The on premise database is often used to insert data and without being able to retrieve the web initiated data deliberately there is a time window that can result in data contention. Take a bookings system for example. The booking made on the ground could overlap any made in the cloud within the sync window.

        Really must have feature!

        Status is 'PLANNED" since Feb 1, 2012.
        What is the actual status of this feature? When can we expect it?!?!

        The ability to initiate syncs would be extremely valuable for occasionally connected clients.
