Can WMX perform a reconcile and post operation in ArcMap instead of just providing a procedural step to remind users to do so?
If yes, how do I set up that step?

Thanks

Hi There,
There are a couple of options available to you - you could write a custom step and do it in code, or create a step to call a gp tool (from the LaunchGPTool type) or python script to do it from there. There is a GP tool called Reconcile Version which will do what you want.

Here's a few older posts to give you some ideas.

and don't forget about the cleanup step -> this will let you frag mxds / versions and attachments for a given job.

No worries. If it will do what you want don't forget to mark this thread as answered.

There is also Workflow Manager's own "Post Job Version" GP tool that you can plug into your workflow. In addition to reconciling and posting, this tool also tracks the spatial edits made and triggers any spatial notifications registered.

We had all sorts of issue running the reconcile/post using the gptool custom step. In the end we had to call a Python script to make sure it works correctly.

Hi Trevor,

Can you please respond with any error messages that we reported when you tried to run our Post Job Version GPTool with the LaunchGP step? If possible, please turn up logging to 5 and retry.

Thanks,
Raghu
