Synchronizes updates between two replica geodatabases in a direction specified by the user.
This tool is used when synchronizing replicas in connected mode. To synchronize replicas in disconnected mode see the Export_Data_Change_Message, Import Message, Export Acknowledgement Message and Re-Export Unacknowledged Messages tools.
Two-way, one-way, and check-out replicas can be synchronized with this tool.
The replica geodatabases can be local geodatabases or geodata services.
Once synchronized, the changes (edits) will be reflected in the target geodatabase and viewable by all users.
SynchronizeChanges_management (geodatabase_1, in_replica, geodatabase_2, in_direction, conflict_policy, conflict_definition, reconcile)
The geodatabase hosting the replica to synchronize. The geodatabase may be local or remote.
A valid replica with a parent contained within one input geodatabase and a child in the other input geodatabase.
The geodatabase hosting the relative replica. The geodatabase may be local or remote.
The direction in which you want changes to be sent: from geodatabase 1 to geodatabase 2, from geodatabase 2 to geodatabase 1, or to send changes in both directions. For check-out/check-in replicas or one-way replicas there is only one appropriate direction. If the replica is two-way then any of the three choices are available.
Specifies how conflicts are resolved when they are encountered.
Specifies how you would like to define conflicts:
Indicates whether to automatically reconcile once data changes are sent to the parent replica if there are no conflicts present. This option is only available for check-out/check-in replicas.
SynchronizeChanges Example (Python Window)
The following Python window example demonstrates how to use the SynchronizeChanges function in the Python window.
import arcpy from arcpy import env env.workspace = "C:/Data" arcpy.SynchronizeChanges_management("MySDEdata.sde", "My2wayReplica", "MySDEdata_child.sde", "BOTH_DIRECTIONS", \ "IN_FAVOR_OF_GDB1", "BY_ATTRIBUTE", "")
SynchronizeChanges Example 2 (stand-alone Python script)
The following demonstrates how to use the SynchronizeChanges function in a stand-alone Python script.
# Name: SynchronizeChanges_Example2.py # Description: Synchronizes changes for a one way replica from the Parent # to the child replica geodatabase. The parent is an ArcSDE workspace, and the child is file geodatabase. # Import system modules import arcpy from arcpy import env # Set workspace env.workspace = "C:/Data" # Set local variables replica_gdb1 = "MySDEdata.sde" replica_gdb2 = "Counties_replica.gdb" replica_name = "MyOneWayReplica" sync_direction = "FROM_GEODATABASE1_TO_2" conflict_policy = "" # Not applicable for one way replicas, there is not conflict detection. conflict_detection = "" # Not applicable for one way replicas, there is not conflict detection. reconcile = "" # Only applicable for Checkout replicas # Execute SynchronizeChanges arcpy.SynchronizeChanges_management(replica_gdb1, replica_name, replica_gdb2, sync_direction, conflict_policy, \ conflict_detection, reconcile)
