Hi-

I am having an issue with photos and Collector.
I have a hosted feature service (point) where I have collected attributes and a photo for each point.  I needed to change the schema so I then downloaded the hosted feature service to a map on my desktop.  I then exported that new hosted feature service  into my geodatabase so that I could change the schema.

When I upload the new hosted feature service, it brings the points and attributes but now my photos that were associated with the points are gone.

Any ideas? 

Thanks!

Hi Farrah,

No answer

I am also trying to transfer attachments to a new feature class in a different gdb (same geometry, different schema)and I have yet to figure out how to get the attachments to go with the geometry, I think it is  partly due to the fact that collector calls all of the attachments photo_1.jpg...and partly due to me not knowing how to work with relationship tables as well as I should...

Hi Jessica,

How do you store the photo's? As a blob in the table or as a (hyper-)link to an external source?

I'm trying to achieve the same goal, hopefully we can team up.

Right now as a blob in the table, but I think we might migrate to a hyperlink to an external source.

I see what you mean after having exported the feature layer to a file geodatabase and downloading that. It contains a table having the pictures as blobs amd a column referencing the point and the picture. Can't you just rename the strings in the ATT_NAME field? Seems to be a string only and the globalID is the unique 'name'.

Right now I'm handicapped because my basic license is "Not licensed to edit layers with relationship classes"

regards,

Bert
