Post process

Once you've configured a utility network, a series of post processing tasks is required prior to publishing the utility network feature service. All the post processing steps should be completed in the utility network project with all the maps closed for better performance.

Register the data as versioned

Once you've configured a utility network, you need to register your data as versioned.

  1. In the Catalog pane, click the Databases drop-down arrow to view databases in the project. Expand the geodatabase you used to create the utility network.
  2. Right-click the database connection and click Geodatabase Connection Properties.
  3. Under Versioning Type, choose Branch, if it is not already selected.
    Geodatabase Connection Properties dialog box with Branch selected in the Versioning Type section
  4. Click OK to update the versioning type and close the dialog box.
  5. Right-click the feature dataset that contains the utility network. Under Manage, click Register as Versioned.

    All datasets within the feature dataset are now branch versioned.

Enable network topology

Once you've versioned your data, you need to enable network topology.

  1. In the Geoprocessing pane, on the Toolboxes tab, browse to the Utility Network Tools toolbox and click the drop-down arrow to view the toolsets in the toolbox.
  2. Expand the Administration toolset and click Enable Network Topology.
  3. Update the parameters of the tool, specifying the Input Utility Network to point to your utility network layer, and click Run.

Export the asset package

Once you've configured your utility network and loaded your data, you can use the Utility Network Package Tools toolbox to export an asset package of your utility network configuration.

  1. On the Analysis tab, in the Geoprocessing group, click Tools Tools.
  2. In the Geoprocessing pane, click the Toolboxes tab to view the toolboxes provided with ArcGIS Pro.
  3. Browse to the Utility Network Package Tools toolbox and click the drop-down arrow to view the tool and toolset in the toolbox. Expand the Asset Package toolset.
  4. Click Export Asset Package to open the tool.
  5. Update the tool parameters to define the utility network configuration that will be used to create an asset package and the location where the asset package will be created.
  6. Click Run.

    The output asset package can be used to quickly move from one environment to another, for example, from a staging to production environment.
