I have been using the Set Data Sources Tool in ArcCatalog for many years when publishing mxds as services that move from development then test and finally production as all 3 environments have their own SDE database and file shares with file gdbs. This tool allows me to quickly update data sources.
Does anyone know if there is an equivalent tool in Pro as Catalog is bundled into the Pro application as opposed to being a separate application in the ArcMap environment as it was located in ArcCatalog?
Solved! Go to Solution.
With the release of Pro 2.4 within 2 months where you can publish directly from Pro to ArcGIS Server with a GUI, it would be great if this tool, that is part of ArcMap/ArcCatalog, can be added to Pro.
I guess a workaround where you are keeping ArcMap around, is to perform this function in ArcMap and then import the mxd into Pro and then publish that aprx. It's a pretty hacky solution without a comparable Set Data Source tool in Pro which has existed in ArcMap for many, many years.
I guess I should submit an Idea for this functionality to be ported to Pro if it is not already in the Road Map?
If it is in the Pro Road Map, do you have an idea on it's tentative release version (e.g. Pro 2.5)?
Sorry for the delay (I'm catching up after being out on vacation)... I guess I don't understand the comment/question about submitting a new idea. We've referenced https://community.esri.com/ideas/12449-need-ability-to-replace-data-source-for-multiple-layers. Yes, this is something that needs to be done in Pro - I don't think a new request is needed. Please let me know if I'm misunderstanding something.
