The tool "Export XML Workspace Document" provides a means to export SDE Enterprise Data into XML which can be imported into a file geodatabase. The tool performs differently between ArcMap and Pro.
With ArcMap I was able to run this tool on my enterprise geodatabase that contained unregistered views and the export and reimport regenerated the view data as static in the file geodatabase. It was a fantastic method to perform "static" archives of flattened data. However,
with ArcGIS Pro, the tool behaves very differently, and while it does allow all my standard SDE data and view data to be exported. The tool crashes when the xml is used for import. I reviewed the newer xml schema and it looks like the new tool perhaps rightly identified that globalid's for the exported view data are not true globalid's, etc. Anyway, the tool fails. While this might be the intended behavior of the tool (perhaps the view data would work if registered with SDE), I pine for the older ArcMap abilities and would request an idea to add a flag to the tool to "mimmic" (older xml functionality) .
If this is a bug, then please fix it. Unfortunately, this is an enterprise dataset and I am unwilling to play with registering the views at this time.
