I'm trying to generate a report in Arc GIS Pro 2.5 that include the photo attachments. I insert a box for the attachment using the attachment button in the data section of the insert tab, but when I run the pdf maker under the share tab place for the attachment is blank.
I was able to resolve the issue with the upgrade as well but, one issue that I'm still having is that if I save a report as a template and then try to run it again with a new shapefile with attachments the photos don't populate. I have to create a new report each time. So, if you are using a template, you may want to try creating a new report.
Hello James Daniels, and others facing this issue!
One cause of this issue can be the way the report data source is set. Attachments don't currently appear correctly unless the data source is set to a layer in a map that you have in your project.
Could you try following these steps to see if it helps?
If the data source is set to the data location in a database or elsewhere, instead of the layer in a map, attachments do not appear correctly. This issue has been logged as a bug.
Have a good one!
OK cool, I will try it. meanwhile, I created a workaround solution by extracting subsets of data to a .gdb and it works fine. it is kindof a pain to link stuff back up with Object ID instead of global, but at least it’s not a show stopping bug.
I’ll get back to you when I can implement steps below. thanks again!
Hi Meredith Dutlinger,
I'm glad that the report is working for you now!
As we discussed, there is also a separate defect with the new Related Reports, added at 2.6. This other issue is specific to relationship classes built using GlobalIDs/Guids.
I was having no problem exporting photo attachments into a report from a FGDB up until I upgraded to 2.8.0. Now I can't see photos in the exported pdf. This is a nightmare as we produce many reports each day. Is anyone else having this issue after upgrading??
We have come into the same problem with the 2.8.0 upgrade, but not from an FGDB. We are streaming from AGOL. This worked in previous versions, but decided to give up in the update. Did you find a work around?
