Hello Team,

I am having trouble using AA for creating GUID. Below is the snapshot of a DynamicValue table:

I have turned on debug mode and below is log file record:

############ 6/7/2018 9:15:55 AM ################

Setting sort order: Field - RUNORDER
Querying table for Last Value for layer: Addresses
Query Used: (TABLENAME = '*' OR TABLENAME = 'Addresses' OR TABLENAME like 'Addresses|*' OR TABLENAME like 'Addresses|%') AND VALUEMETHOD = 'Last_Value'
Number of results: 0
Querying table for rules for layer: Addresses
Query Used: (TABLENAME = '*' OR TABLENAME = 'Addresses' OR TABLENAME like 'Addresses|*' OR TABLENAME like 'Addresses|%') AND (ON_CHANGE = '1' or ON_CHANGE = 'Yes' or ON_CHANGE = 'YES' or ON_CHANGE = 'True' or ON_CHANGE = 'TRUE')
Number of results: 1
Looping through the rows
------------------------------------------------
Row Info
Row Number 1
TableName: Addresses
FieldName: OBJECTID_1
ValueInfo: D
ValueMethod: GUID
On Create: 0
On Change: 1

Checking for Subtype Restriction
Field Name: OBJECTID_1 was found at index: 0
Finished: EXPRESSION
------------------------------------------------
DONE
---------------------------------------

I am checking GenerateID table. Nothing shows up. Can someone help me with this?

My Best,

Meghan

The dataset can be configured by right click, manage, add global IDs for automatic entry.

Otherwise, I use the following to populate an attribute field that is similar to the GlobalID field.

table name: (use * if you want this to apply to all feature classes)
Field Name: (enter the name of the field that you want the GUID in)
Value Method: GUID
Value Info: B

for other values:  N, D, P

Is FIELDNAME supposed to be <Null>?

That should just about do it....

no.  type the name of the attribute field that will have the GUID data.

In our case, the attribute field name is called, "sdsID" or "GlobalID"

attached is a screen shot, still working improving on how NOT to populate the attributes that are NOT NULL.  work in progress.

I downloaded some of the other industry workflows examples to get ideas and somewhere i got a bunch of examples that others had uploaded.  here is the link to them, hope the links work:  https://community.esri.com/message/590427

That was a rhetorical question....  I'm not the one having problems with it; personally, I don't use GUIDS for anything but replication....

That should just about do it....
