Hi,

I have a client who is moving to Utility Network. This client has System of Record and System of Publication geodatabases with GDB replication set-up in the existing system without UN. The question is, does Utility Network topology fully support EGDB to EGDB replication. Has anyone set this up in a production environment? Are there any technical challenges we need to be aware of? Client wishes to run the traces in a Web Environment using publication geodatabase and WAB widgets.

Thanks,

Vish

Confirmed with Utility Network Product team that Geodatabase replication for Utility Network is currently unsupported. There is no fixed timeline that when this will be available.  Let me know if you need more details and I will be happy to follow up with the product team.

Sure I will check with Remi during the meeting.

As per my understanding, the core geodatabase replication workflows are available in  ArcGIS Pro 2.5 (Beta) and will available in ArcGIS Pro 2.5 soon.

I don't see anything on the Utility Network roadmap about GDB replication.

Thank you Rushi for answering - here is the section that will be released in the 2.5 ArcGIS Pro web helps that explains the types of data types that are supported. The key factor here is that geodatabase replication is built on top of traditional versioning. Newer services based datasets created in ArcGIS Pro like the utility network and parcel fabric use branch versioning when implemented in enterprise geodatabases.

When the ArcGIS Pro 2.5 documentation goes live early in February, the following page can be referenced:

Hi all,

What would be the method of replicating Utility Network data to other systems who may require our data? if database replication is not supported.

I would also be interested in replication alternatives for Utility Network feature classes. Could something be set up on DB itself or using FME to distribute the layers for consumption by third party applications? Theoretically I know this can be done a couple ways however, would doing so cause any issues on the ESRI side of things? Primarily concerned with feature classes that are consumed by third party applications and not the Utility Network layer.

Is there any update regarding the possibility of replication for utility network dataset and what are the available alternatives if it is not yet supported @Anonymous User
