Event layer refresh category should have a add functionality to reload updated data from connected databases like SQL Server/Postgre DB if there are changes or updates in database. Currently the functionality to refresh the points and attributes are limited to event layers and there are no functionality to fetch the refresh data from database to Event Layer in real time.


ArcGIS Pro supports stream services for real-time data: Stream layers—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop 

Does the refresh interval for layers not work for you? Set layer properties—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop 


Hi Kory,

Thanks for your answer.

Refresh interval for layers doesn't load the refresh data from Database. It refreshes the changes from attributes of the layers. Actually, i am plotting the points on the map with XY coordinates fields from table in database. what i am trying to do is whenever the data is updated on database it refreshes the data on plotted points too in layer.

Any help is appreciable here.
