Class Overview

Constants for the groups table. Only per-account groups are supported.

Columns

#
Groups
long _ID read-only Row ID. Sync adapter should try to preserve row IDs during updates. In other words, it would be a really bad idea to delete and reinsert a group. A sync adapter should always do an update instead.
String DATA_SET read/write-once

The data set within the account that this group belongs to. This allows multiple sync adapters for the same account type to distinguish between each others' group data. The combination of ACCOUNT_TYPE, ACCOUNT_NAME, and DATA_SET identifies a set of data that is associated with a single sync adapter.

This is empty by default, and is completely optional. It only needs to be populated if multiple sync adapters are entering distinct data for the same account type and account name.

It should be set at the time the group is inserted and never changed afterwards.

String TITLE read/write The display title of this group.
String NOTES read/write Notes about the group.
String SYSTEM_ID read/write The ID of this group if it is a System Group, i.e. a group that has a special meaning to the sync adapter, null otherwise.
int SUMMARY_COUNT read-only The total number of Contacts that have ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.GroupMembership in this group. Read-only value that is only present when querying CONTENT_SUMMARY_URI.
int SUMMARY_WITH_PHONES read-only The total number of Contacts that have both ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.GroupMembership in this group, and also have phone numbers. Read-only value that is only present when querying CONTENT_SUMMARY_URI.
int GROUP_VISIBLE read-only Flag indicating if the contacts belonging to this group should be visible in any user interface. Allowed values: 0 and 1.
int DELETED read/write The "deleted" flag: "0" by default, "1" if the row has been marked for deletion. When delete(Uri, String, String[]) is called on a group, it is marked for deletion. The sync adaptor deletes the group on the server and then calls ContactResolver.delete once more, this time setting the the CALLER_IS_SYNCADAPTER query parameter to finalize the data removal.
int SHOULD_SYNC read/write Whether this group should be synced if the SYNC_EVERYTHING settings is false for this group's account.
