What's new

Below are the release dates and notes for Water Utility Network Editing and Analysis.

Date Description
June 2017
  • An update to the wAbandonedPoint and wAbandonedLine layers in the WaterUtilities.gdb. The POINTTYPE and LINETYPE fields were renamed to ABANSOURCE. The LINETYPE field was also used in the wLateralLine class and the value in this field would be overwritten by the layer name when a feature was abandoned.

  • A resolution to an issue in which the tools were attempting to apply values to non-editable fields.
  • A resolution to an issue in which non-visible fields in the source or target were transferred or copied to assets when abandoning or un-abandoning. (BUG-000101506)
  • A resolution to an issues in which abandoning an asset would cause an invalid state in an enterprise geodatabase (BUG-000101534).
  • An enhancement to the abandon and unabandon tools to provide better support for file geodatabases, versioned enterprise geodatabases, and un-versioned enterprise geodatabases.
