Using Pro to extract GDB Schema

Question asked by LANDVEST on Oct 13, 2020

We are finding there are still several GDB administration tools/processes that are unavailable with Pro. Since we cannot create GDBs in (Desktop) Database Servers (SQL Express) with Pro, we were looking for a workaround and it occurred to us that there doesn't seem to be any equivalent of the Extract Data Wizard in Pro.

 

Is there any other way to extract just the schema (via XML) from a GDB in Pro?

 

Alternatively, I don't see any option to use 'Schema Only' for a checkout GDB in the Create Replica GP Tool in Pro. Not that it would do any good, because we still can't find any equivalent to importing a workspace like you have in ArcMap.

 

Are we just overlooking something obvious here or are these findings correct?

 

Thanks!
