Release notes for 1.0

January 2018 is the first release of the Gas Utility Network Configuration. This configuration is a series of maps and apps for gas utilities to quickly take advantage of the capabilities of the ArcGIS Utility Network Management extension to manage gas networks.

The Gas Utility Network Configuration includes the following:

  • Configuration instructions
  • Schema for common gas components
  • Rules to define network behavior
  • Project for configuring and publishing the utility network services
  • Maps and apps to support common gas utility workflows
  • Sample data

To learn more about the advantages of using the Gas Utility Network Configuration, see benefits of the Gas Utility Network Configuration.

Known issue

A known limitation of the Gas Utility Network Configuration is described below. Software developers are working to fix this issue in a future release of the solution.

  • The ArcGIS Solutions Deployment Tool does not support deploying maps and apps using the utility network simple map service. Solutions deployed will use the utility network feature service that has been published to your organization.
