Is it possible to import and asset package or XML in an ArcGIS UN that running to update (adding or deleting features), also can it be imported into a specified child version?
My understanding is that under the following conditions:
Then, you may be able to run Apply Asset Package against your current E-GDB (be aware of locks) and extend the schema of the E-GDB UN.
Now then, and based on this workflow, the schema is extended at the E-GDB level and a republish step might be necessary. And, consequently the schema extension is manifested at the DEFAULT version.
If others know of a way to do this differently and, as you are asking... if a schema could be applied to a particular version... I would also like to know.
NOTE: When I say above no schema updates I mean: do not change an Asset Type name (for instance) as many UN properties in your current branch versioned UN are dependent on the original AT name.
We have released a tool that will transfer the data from an Asset Package to a UN(and a version). It will only add data, it does not delete/update data.
