At the ArcGIS Pro 2.7 release in December the FME engine in Data Interoperability extension is FME 2020.2.  The corresponding release of Data Interoperability for ArcGIS Enterprise with the same engine is Enterprise 10.9 pre-release and available simultaneously with Pro 2.7, but if your organization cannot implement pre-release software and you will be using Enterprise 10.8.1 (which uses FME 2020.0.1) until 10.9 ships then Spatial ETL web tools or Workbenches run on a server may fail if either of these conditions is met:

  1. The tool uses a format that is not supported by Enterprise 10.8.1/FME 2020.0.1
  2. The tool uses a transformer which has a new version number at FME 2020.2.

There is no workaround for the first situation and the affected formats are:

  • Microsoft Direct Draw
  • CityJSON
  • LDAP/Active Directory
  • Mapbox Vector Tile
  • Mapbox Vector Tileset
  • Mapbox MBTiles Vector Tiles
  • Planet Basemaps
  • Snowflake Spatial
  • 12D Model

There is a workaround for the second situation, namely to substitute transformers from the FME 2020.0.1 engine when authoring your Pro 2.7 Spatial ETL workspace.  These are available in the blog download, simply open the containing tool by editing it and copy/paste the transformers you want into your workspace.  The affected transformers are:

  • FeatureReader
  • JSONExtractor
  • JSONFlattener
  • JSONFormatter
  • JSONFragmenter
  • JSONUpdater
  • JSONValidator
  • LocalCoordinateSystemSetter
  • SQLExecutor
  • StatisticsCalculator
  • TCLCaller

We apologize for this temporary situation which will be resolved when ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9 ships.
