Summary

Gets the job data workspace as an enterprise geodatabase connection file. This tool is typically used in ModelBuilder to retrieve the connection file for use as an input to other tools such as Reconcile Versions in the model.

Usage

  • The Input Job ID must be for a job that currently exists in the repository.

  • This tool is typically used in a model to retrieve the job's data workspace as an enterprise geodatabase connection file. For example, a model can be created to reconcile and post edits made in a specific job version to the parent version. The Get Job Data Workspace tool would be utilized to retrieve the data workspace connection, whereas the job's version would be retrieved using the Get Job Version tool, and the parent version would be retrieved using the Get Job Parent Version tool.
