I'm new to utility network and still trying to learn its capabilities and limitations based on my proposed setup. The sewer data I'm accessing is in a file geodatabase. I do not have Enterprise.

With this setup, is it possible in Pro 2.7 to create a utility network from a file geodatabase and publish it ArcGIS Online? Within this, are their any Esri Solutions that would assist with this process?

I haven't found any documentation showing that this workflow is possible. Everything I find references Enterprise and Portal.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Jacob, 

A single-user model implementation of a utility network does not require ArcGIS Enterprise, however a multi-user model requires an ArcGIS Enterprise Portal with a federated server for serving a UNM service to multiple users:

Full details for the requirements for a multi-user model UNM deployment are available here: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/help/data/utility-network/create-a-utility-network.htm 

The management and configuration of a multiple-user model UNM deployment requires significant level of control over service capabilities/version management et al, as well as control over the UNM feature classes at the database-level

Unfortunately this isn't currently available in ArcGIS Online.

Alex,

Thanks for all the information! It really helps clear things up for me. Just want to make sure I'm understanding fully though. So in the single-use model, it's not possible to publish any services (feature or image) even to AGOL. Is that correct?

Jacob,

If the service is being hosted in AGOL, you'd have a disconnect between your FGDB local copy and the hosted service, any updates done to the local copy won't be replicated in the hosted copy.   This is avoided in the enterprise portal/federated server model as you can have multiple services (a fully-featured UNM editor service, non-editable map and feature services etc) referencing the same enterprise geodatabase.

I was under the assumption that it would result in a disconnect environment, so thanks for confirming that. It's good to know that it can at least be published unlike datasets containing geometric networks.
