Utility network layer properties

The utility network Layer Properties dialog box includes information about the utility network. This dialog box includes a variety of information accessed through its available tabs. Collectively, all the tabs on the Layer Properties dialog box provide information about the utility network layer. There are several tabs that contain information about the layer itself—General, Metadata, and Source. To view details of the utility network configuration use the Network Properties tab.

Tip:

You can expand the dialog box by double-clicking the top menu bar.

Access utility network properties

The Layer Properties dialog box is accessed from the utility network layer's context menu via the Contents pane.

  1. Ensure the utility network is added to an active map. If the utility network layer is not present in a map, from the Catalog pane, right-click the utility network dataset Utility network dataset and select Add to new map or Add to current map.

    The utility network and related network classes are added to a new or existing map view.

  2. In the Contents pane, right-click the utility network layer and select Properties.

    The Layer Properties dialog box appears.

  3. On the Layer Properties dialog box, click the Network Properties tab.

    Other tabs available on the Layer Properties dialog box are as follows:

    • General
    • Metadata
    • Source

Network Properties tab

The Network Properties tab provides information about the creation date, network topology, domain networks, rules, diagram templates, and other important metadata regarding the current configuration of the utility network.

Network Properties tab

The following sections are included on the Network Properties tab for the utility network layer properties:

General

The General section includes information about the creation and last modified times and version information for the utility network:

  • Created Time
  • Utility Network Release
  • ArcGIS Pro Release
  • Last Modified Time
  • Portal Utility Network Owner (see note below)
  • Upgraded (see note below)

Note:

The Portal Utility Network Owner and Upgraded properties are only displayed when the utility network layer is added to an active map from a database connection established as the database utility network owner. Having the Portal Utility Network Owner is helpful in order to perform configuration and publishing tasks.

Network Topology

The Network Topology section includes information about whether the network topology is enabled, the dirty area count, and the line, point, and polygon error count. In addition, the following operations are recorded as they are completed against the utility network:

  • Is Enabled
  • Dirty Area Count
  • Line Error Count
  • Point Error Count
  • Polygon Error Count
  • Initial Enable Topology Time and Duration
  • Enable Topology Time and Duration
  • Last Full Validate Topology Time and Duration
  • Last Partial Validate Topology Time and Duration
  • Disable Topology Time and Duration

Structure Network

The Structure Network section includes general information about the date and time of initial creation of the structure network, name, and alias. The structure network feature classes are listed, and information about the following properties in each class is displayed:

  • Asset Group Name
  • Asset Type Name
  • Association Role
  • Container View Scale
  • Association Deletion Semantics
  • Category (junction and line only)
  • Network Edge Connectivity Policy (line only)
  • Container Split Policy (line only)

Domain Network

For each domain network that is part of the utility network, there will be a section titled <Domain name> Network. This section within the network properties is comprised of the following subsections:

  • General—information about the domain network
    • Created Time
    • Name
    • Alias Name
    • Tier Definition
    • Subnetwork Controller Type
  • Tiers—tiers that have been created with their associated subnetwork definition
    • Tier Name
    • Tier Rank
    • Tier Topology Type
    • Support Disjoint Subnetworks
    • Valid Subnetwork Controllers
    • Subnetwork Field Name—domain networks with hierarchical tier definitions only
    • Valid Devices
    • Valid Lines
    • Aggregated Lines for SubnetLine Feature Class
    • Diagram Templates
    • Trace Configuration
  • Network classes—domain network classes are listed with the following properties
    • Asset Group Name
    • Asset Group Name
    • Asset Type Name
    • Association Role
    • Container View Scale
    • Association Deletion Semantics
    • Category
    • Network Edge Connectivity Policy (line only)
    • Terminal Configuration Name (device only)

Rules

The Rules section lists the existing network rule base for the utility network. This section is divided by network rule type as shown below. Within each rule type is a Sort By filter for easier viewing.

  • Junction-Junction Connectivity
  • Junction-Edge Connectivity
  • Edge-Junction-Edge Connectivity
  • Containment
  • Structural Attachment

Within each rule type the table contains all the properties for that rule. See View network rules for more details.

Attributes and Assignments

The Attributes and Assignments section includes the network attributes and assignments for the utility network. As network attributes are created in the utility network, they are listed in the Attributes table.

  • Name
  • Field Type
  • Nullable
  • Inline (Bit Size)
  • Domain Name
  • Apportionable
  • Network Attribute to Substitute
  • Created Time

When they are assigned to a particular feature class and field, they populate the Assignments table.

  • Attribute Name
  • Class Name
  • Field Name

Terminal Configurations

The Terminal Configurations section includes the existing terminal configurations in the utility network. This table includes information about the following properties of each terminal configuration. For information about which feature classes are assigned a specific terminal configuration, review the device feature class properties in the specific domain network (terminal configuration name).

  • Name
  • Directionality Model
  • Terminals (ID/Name/Upstream Terminal)
  • Valid Paths

Categories

The Categories section includes the names of existing network categories in the utility network. For information about which feature classes are assigned a specific network category, review the Category column for specific feature classes in the Structure Network and <Domain name> Network sections.

  • Name
  • Created Time

Diagram Templates

The Diagram Templates section includes the names of existing diagram templates in the utility network and information about the following properties for each diagram template is displayed:

  • Name
  • Created Time
  • Last Modified Time
  • Diagram Storage
  • Is System
  • Extend Diagram
