The layers will be resourced to the job version and the map will be zoomed to the job’s location of interest. Layers are resourced to the job’s version based on the feature class’s short rsri. VersionExists Checks to see if the job already has a geodatabase version. The integer output from a tool can be used as a return code to guide the path of the workflow upon the tool’s completion. Available with Workflow Manager license. Once layers are added to the map, the Add Data button on the Workflow Exri toolbar will take you directly to the version defined for the job or the default version for the selected data workspace.

Easily manage and distribute work for geographically dispersed workforces.

Executes geoprocessing tools from your workflows. To set multiple extended properties values at once separate each entry by a semicolon: Navigation menu Personal tools Create account Log in.

Wait for ArcMap to close suspend Workflow Manager. Store MXDs in shared location.


Improve user productivity by automating multiuser tasks and reducing repetitive setup procedures. Creates the version for the job.

Sets the job’s version to a named version. If you choose to use this option, Workflow Manager will load the map document or template configured for the argument. The protection level of the version is specified by one of the following arguments: This step can be included multiple times in the workflow with different extended properties to be opened at different stages of the workflow. The following table outlines the process steps and what they can do.

The step supports the traditional data workspace and the feature service data workspace. Thus, if you change the extent of the job map and close it, the new extent will not be saved, and the next time, the map will still open with the original extent. ArcMap opens with a blank document.
