Hi, I'm looking to write a script to rebuild a geocoder published to portal 11.2

Something like:

 

gis = GIS(
url="<portal url>",
username="<username>",
password="<pw>",
verify_cert=True,
)

gis_servers = gis.admin.servers.list()

server = gis_servers[0]

services = server.services.list(folder='Geocoders')

address_locator1 = services[0]  #locator to rebuild 1

address_locator2 = services[1]  #locator to rebuild 2

arcpy.geocoding.RebuildAddressLocator(address_locator1) #?

 

I can access the services and see everything so no issues there. But the reference data for these 2 locators, is in our local production DB.  So I'm not sure how the rebuild function would access the data.

Do I need to write a script that uses an sd draft instead? Or what if I changed the locators reference data to use publicly accessible hosted services? I'm assuming that would work.

Whats best practice? Thank you.

@AaronManuel2 The following help topic references the best practice for updating a locator and the geocode service. https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/help/data/geocoding/keep-your-locator-up-to-date.htm#ESRI_S...
