Hi,

I try to apply an asset package using the d_configuration table to remove tiers, subtypes ad everything that depends on it.

I started with an existing asset package, then created the d_configuration table with a new configuration field.

With older version, I think I could choose between True or False to include / not include a specific item. (see https://www.powereng.com/library/extending-the-utility-networks-base-configurations-2-of-2)

Now with ArcGIS Pro 2.9 and untools 2.9.1 I have three values

- not evaluated

- Evaluated

- Exclusive

Whatever value I choose for a group of subtypes I want to (not)include, everything is applied when I run Apply Asset Package.

Can anyone explain how to use it properly ?

When you applied the asset package, did you uncheck the configuration?  

Here a a definition of the values

 

Not evaluated = This was false before, the row is not evaluated as part of the configuration

Evaluated = This was true before,  If set, the this entry will be removed if this category is not applied only if true/evaluated if not set in any other category that is applied

Exclusive is new.   If set, the this entry will be removed if this category is not applied only regardless of any other settings in other applied categories.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for the clarification.

So if I want to exclude some tiers/subtypes, I need to set everything to 0 (Not Evaluated) except the specific items I want to exclude, which I set to 1 (Evaluated) OR 2 (Exclusive) if I have several configurations and want it to be excluded anyway.

Then the weird part is I need NOT TO check the configuration when applying the asset package... It is a bit counter-intuitive, but it worked !

I couldn't find any documentation about this behavior, will there be an official doc ?

Thank you again

Regards

The help is located at the below link, but does not have the information I posted above.  I will work with the doc team to get it added.

I know it is a little hard to grasp at first, but are some reasons we had to implement it this way.  I am glad it is working for you now!

I would love a little more information about all of this in the documentation! The information on this page isn't overly helpful for newbies! And I haven't found much else out there to help explain how to use the d_configuration tables.

We are working on improving the doc, but Joe from Power Engineers has two nice articles that describe the use of the tables:
