The ArcFM Redlining Sample Data is an optional download to assist you in your initial setup of a redlining palette in ArcFM Mobile for Windows.
To use the provided Sample Data, you must have ArcGIS 10.2.1 or later installed.
IMPORTANT NOTE: To use the provided Sample Data, you must be able to create a dataset with a storage type of ST_GEOMETRY or SDO_GEOMETRY for Oracle databases or GEOMETRY for SQL Server databases. ArcFM Redlining requires a non-versioned, archive-enabled dataset. Esri does not support non-versioned, archive-enabled datasets on other storage types such as SDELOB or SDEBINARY. If your geodatabase uses either SDELOB or SDEBINARY, you will either need to enable a new configuration keyword on your geodatabase, or you will need to migrate your storage type. Please contact Schneider Electric Technical Support for more information.
To use the ArcFM Redlining Sample Data:
- Click each of the links below to download the sample data ("Redlines Sample FGDB", "Redlines Toolbox", and "Redlines Sample MXD").
- Unzip the Redlines Sample FGDB to an easily accessible location on your machine.
- In ArcCatalog, create a new, empty Feature Dataset in the geodatabase where you would like your Redlines to be saved. Important: Do NOT register this new dataset as verisoned. You must connect to this dataset as a user that has privileges to copy/paste into the SDE datababase and dataset. If you need assistance in determining what these privileges are, please contact Schneider Electric Technical Support.
- Open the ArcToolbox window. Right-click the ArcToolbox header, and select Add Toolbox...
- Navigate to the location where you saved the Redlines.tbx file. You may have to add a new folder connection to do this. Select the Redlines.tbx file and click Open. This will add a new toolbox in your ArcToolbox window called Redlines.
- Expand the Redlines toolbox, right-click on Copy Redlines, and select Edit... This will open the Model Editor.
- Double-click on the blue oval labeled Generic Dataset Source. Click on the folder icon to browse to the Redlines sample geodatabase. Double-click on the sample geodatabase to view the datasets it contains. Select the Generic dataset, click Add, then OK.
- Double-click on the green oval labeled Generic Dataset Destination. Click on the folder icon to browse to the geodatabase where you created your Redline dataset. Note: You may need to change the "Save as type" dropdown to Datasets to see your database connections.
- Double-click on your geodatabase and select the Feature Dataset you created in step 3. Click Save, then OK. Important: You must connect to this dataset as a user that has privileges to copy/paste into the SDE datababase and dataset. If you need assistance in determining what these privileges are, please contact Schneider Electric Technical Support.
- Click the Model menu item in the upper left corner, then click Run Entire Model. This will copy the Generic dataset from the sample geodatabase into the dataset you created. Then, it will enable archiving on that dataset.
- After the Copy Redlines model has successfully run, click Close.
- Close the Model Editor window, saving changes if prompted.
- Close ArcToolbox and ArcCatalog.
- Navigate to the location where you saved the Redlines.mxd file. Double-click on that file to open it in ArcMap.
- When the MXD opens in ArcMap, the data sources for each of the layers will be broken. Click on the red exclamation point next to one of the layers, and repair the data source by pointing it to the newly created redline dataset in your geodatabase.
- Once you have repaired the data sources, you are ready to begin preparing and publishing your Redline Feature Services. See the ArcFM Mobile Configuration Guide for more information.
Note: Once you have fully completed configuring ArcFM Redlining, and you are viewing your redlines in ArcMap for the first time, depending on your version of ArcMap, you may notice issues with transparency (for example, on the Highlight or Polygon layers) or labeling (for example, on the Dimension Line layer). To fix these issues refer to the instructions under "Configure Redline Layer Views" in the ArcFM Mobile User Guide. In addition, you may want to turn off the scaling of symbols to more accurately match what is seen in the ArcFM Mobile application. These changes should not be made in the "Redlines Sample MXD" used to publish your Redline Feature Service. They should be made in any MXD or Stored Display that you wish to use for viewing Redlines that were placed in the field in ArcMap.
