Greetings,

I have successfully updated connection properties in all scenarios EXCEPT enterprise to enterprise (dev to production).  The following code is my example.  I have 2.9 (yes i know outdated)  Python 1.9.1 ( again. outdated).

Is this a limitation of the updateConnectionProperties?

Is this related the attached screenshot, where the Update Data Sources is full of "Unsupported Items"

Feel like I am missing something obvious...  ?   help...

Steve, try the the following:

aprx = arcpy.mp.ArcGISProject('current')
m = aprx.listMaps()[0]
# put your layer name here
lyr = m.listLayers('Water1')[0]
lyrCIM = lyr.getDefinition("V2")
# put your URL here
# note that it has to start with 'URL='
lyrCIM.featureTable.dataConnection.workspaceConnectionString = 'URL=https://services2.arcgis.com/k4wsDILUIGeQ5HvW/arcgis/rest/services/Water2/FeatureServer'
lyr.setDefinition(lyrCIM)

This workaround uses the CIM. You can learn more about the CIM here: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/arcpy/mapping/python-cim-access.htm

milliseconds = (seconds * 10)

Time = time.strftime("%I:%M:%S %p", time.localtime())
# Current Day
Day = time.strftime("%m-%d-%Y", time.localtime())

I'm not aware of any bugs when updating the data sources of enterprise geodatabase layers between DEV and PROD. Have you tried this syntax:

 

Project/Map/Layer/Table.updateConnectionProperties('DEV.sde', 'PROD.sde')

 


That syntax is easier than the connectionProperties dictionary. However, the dictionary workflow should work. If you need to stick with that dict workflow, can you give me more info about your layers? Make a new project with a map that just has 1.) a DEV layer, and, 2.) the corresponding PROD layer. Then run this script, and let me know what the output of the print statements are. Also, are the user names/passwords the same between DEV and PROD?

 

from arcpy.cim.__init__ import GetJSONForCIMObject

aprx = arcpy.mp.ArcGISProject('current')
m = aprx.listMaps()[0]
lyr = m.listLayers('MY DEV LAYER NAME')[0]
c = lyr.getDefinition('V2')
dc = c.featureTable.dataConnection
j = GetJSONForCIMObject(dc, 'V2')
print(j)

lyr = m.listLayers('MY PROD LAYER NAME')[0]
c = lyr.getDefinition('V2')
dc = c.featureTable.dataConnection
j = GetJSONForCIMObject(dc, 'V2')
print(j)

 

Can you also send me screen shots of Layer > Properties > Source for both the DEV and PROD layers? Thanks.

@JeffMoulds  Attached are the screen shots and python output you asked for.

I have tried this.  I am SAML connected to the Portal that loads each the PROD and DEV. So I believe I am connected same/same.

Probably missing something obvious.  Particulars about the connection properties or user mis-understanding...  😞     The JMoulds4.doc shows the connection properties for the Feature Service and same the Database feature.  I can make the following work on the Db connection but I cannot get a URL to old/new.

import arcpy,pprint
# ## SGTomlins 6/10/24

aprfilenew = r'C:\SGT\ESRI\Python\ChangeSource\JMoulds4_out.aprx'

# ## Set your ArcGIS Project to excute the code on.
aprfilein = r'C:\SGT\ESRI\Python\ChangeSource\JMoulds4.aprx'
p = arcpy.mp.ArcGISProject(aprfilein)

# ## Execute the command to change the versions of the layers in the .aprx
p.updateConnectionProperties(r'C:\SGT\ESRI\Python\ChangeSource\SAML@underdog-az@gis_prod_util.sde',
r'C:\SGT\ESRI\Python\ChangeSource\SAML@tinker2019@gis_prod_util.sde')

p.saveACopy(aprfilenew)



 What is there to change or use for the URL old/new update? 

Thanks in advance.

@JeffMoulds , I just saw this today.   Went looking after I got the email about the bug not being "reproducible".  I will take your direction and proceed.  Thanks for the follow-up.

Steve,

I'm glad you were able to get the enterprise geodatabase workflow to work. E.g.

Project/Map/Layer/Table.updateConnectionProperties('DEV.sde', 'PROD.sde')

 

Regarding using the same code pattern for updating Feature Service URLs, e.g.

 

Layer.updateConnectionProperties(DevURL, ProdURL)

 

Are you able to upgrade your version of ArcGIS Pro to version 3.2 or higher? That's the version we added support for updating URLs. If you are unable to upgrade, I can show you a CIM workaround.

@JeffMoulds  The CIM would be helpful.  We are bound by some legacy software version in-compatibility and an upgrade is pending and especially needed.  I am setting up 3.2 / 10.9 on the dev environment.  Hence,  transferring connection properties between equipment is very handy.I take the working PROD and stand it up in DEV and updateconnections...  when it is done, I send it back.  wash rinse repeat.

All the best,

-Steve
