Issue with GUID fields in SDS feature service

Discussion created by r_pankevicius on Jul 10, 2012
I have a data table with geometry column in SQL Server. It has 2 uniqueidentifier fields : GID (not null) and RealEstateID (can be null). It was actualy a copy-paste from SDE feature class with GlobalID (GID field).

So I published the table as Feature Service on local Spatial Data Server. Added feature service layer to ArcMap. 2 things do not work:

  1. Identify doesn't work on features from SDS feature layer.

  2. When I invoke "Create local copy for edit" command on that layer I get an error "A general error when something is wrong with a Field. [GID]" (see picture)

I removed GID field, republished service. Got error (2) now complaining about something wrong with RealEstateID field. Identify didn't work neither.

After removing RealEstateID field two issues were gone.

Are GUID fields not supported by Spatial Data Server or is it a bug?

Thanks in advance.
