Regarding the ArcGIS Pro Roadmap - December 2021
Non-versioned editing - support of workflows similar to those implemented in ArcMap for editing non-versioned data. When implemented, edits against non-versioned data will not be written directly to the database, giving the user the ability to undo and/or discard edits before committing.
What is meant by the word “undo”?
I suspect it means that ALL edits in a session can be discarded. I don’t think it’s referring to true undo functionality. I.e., we won’t be able to undo (CTRL+Z) the last individual edit within a greater editing session.
Can someone confirm what the intent is? I’m aware that roadmap plans are tentative/subject to change.
Hello @Bud thank you for the question! As I understand it, this statement refers to true undo which removes the last individual edit and can be performed using the 'Undo' button in the Quick Access Toolbar or using Ctrl+Z. This is discussed in the "Filter undo and redo for editing" documentation, which states the following for Pro 2.9: "You cannot undo editing operations made to nonversioned data in an enterprise geodatabase." This of course will change in a future release once we implement undo for nonversioned data.
Please let me know if you have further questions!
"...workflows similar to those implemented in ArcMap for editing non-versioned data."
This is my understanding:
I'm still skeptical that future versions of ArcGIS Pro will allow undo of unversioned data. My guess is: it will only be possible to discard an edit session, not undo (consistent with how ArcMap works now).
I would be very happy to be wrong though.
