Need Ability to Replace Data Source for Multiple Layers. We can repair more than one layer in Desktop ArcMap, we need the same capability in Pro.
What version of Pro are you using where you do not see this functionality? I purposely broke 2 layers in an mxd and then imported the mxd into a new Pro 2.1.2 aprx. When I click on the exclamation point and fix the link for 1 of the broken layers, the other broken link was also fixed.
Agree with Michael here. Ted Cronin can you expand on this idea? You mention replacing data source for multiple layers and then talk about repairing.
I have a similar issue. (I only just started using Pro)
What is the ArcGIS Pro equivalent of the Set Data Source(s) function in ArcCatalog? (Batch resourcing)
Example: Let’s say I have a .aprx map that has 30 layers in it. Of those 30 layers, 10 are sourced to one.sde, 10 are sourced to two.sde and 10 are sourced to three.sde. For whatever the reason, now I need to source the 20 layers from one.sde and two.sde to four.sde and the 10 from three.sde to five.sde.
In ArcCatalog I would normally use the Set Data Source(s) function to accomplish this task. I can’t find its equivalent in Pro. For Pro, there is a Python script that can batch resource from .gdb to .gdb, but not .sde to .sde, so that doesn’t work for my situation. I’ve talked with ESRI and they’ve said there is a bug (BUG-000112574) when updating enterprise layers with this Python.
Currently, I don’t think there is a way to batch resource .sde sources in Pro. Am I wrong?
Are the links currently broken in your mxd? Or do the links still work, but you want to just change the data source?
The links still work, I just want to change the data source.
The scenario I first talked about is different from your scenario and I totally agree that the Set Data Source tool in ArcCatalog is an extremely useful tool than needs to be ported over to Pro.
In the below post from a month and a half ago I asked if this functionality was available in Pro.
Set Data Sources Tool in Pro
I myself would use this tool when ESRI adds the ability to publish services from Pro directly to ArcGIS Server without the need for Portal (I would use this tool for many other scenarios but the above scenario is a more common workflow for me). I begin with a development SDE database and then need to modify SDE connections to a test SDE database for the test environment and finally modify the SDE connections to a production SDE database for the production environment.
