Is it possible to add asset types after migrating data and publishing to an enterprise geodatabase?

For example, if I wanted to add an asset type for structure line, electric low voltage conduit- can this be done post-migration?

Is it best practice to not add asset types at all?

Thank you.

Yes, you can add new asset types after deploying a utility network, but you must disable the network topology. This is convenient because you'll also need to disable the network topology to make other configuration changes like adding rules, adding the asset type to any subnetwork definitions, etc.

I recommend you check out the configuration changes section of the utility network management tasks for the full list of what you can and can't do (and when).  Pay special attention to tasks that aren't allowed or "must be performed prior to the network topology being enabled for the first time".

I would also pay attention to the codes you would use for asset types and where possible do not use an existing asset type code that has a different description.  Yes, Asset Type codes are specific to each asset group, but when viewing the data in a non-subtype group layer it can get a little confusing to the user.

Hi @mshanaghan

 

Yes. Below is a workflow that should help add Asset Types to the existing Enterprise UN:

 

  1. Disable Network Topology against UN feature service (not SDE)
  2. In ArcGIS Server Manager, Stop the UN Service(s)
  3. Close any open Maps and save ArcGIS Pro
  4. Re-open ArcGIS Pro, make sure your database connection is the UN owner connection
  5. Add the new Domains/Asset Types in the UN owner DB connection
  6. Use the Add Rule GP tool to add the necessary connectivity rules for the new AT line features to connect to other features
  7. Open the Set Subnetwork Definition tool to add the new Asset Type(s) to their pertinent Tier (run this for each Tier where needed)
  8. Close & re-open Pro
  9. Open Electric Distribution Network map and add new Asset Type symbology
  10. Enable Network Topology against the UN owner SDE DB connection
  11. In Server Manager, start UN Services back up
  12. Republish your UN services

 

I hope this helps!
