    In an effort to keep automation simple, it would be nice if there was an option either while creating or synchronizing the replica to automatically compare schemas and import any changes.made in a parent gdb to a child gdb.

    I envision this as a drop down or check box with options within the GUI tools and as a parameter or switch within python.

    Keeping in mind that the Esri Local Government Data Model is being adopted and used more and more. With each new release from Esri there are new/updated domains, fields, etc... Being able to update the Parent GDB with the changes in this Data Model and have those changes to persist to a Child GDB automatically/programmatically as an option would make managing schema changes with replication much easier. Therefore a database administrator could give more capabilities to a data owner to make changes and have those changes reflected in another gdb.

    Thank you for your consideration!
