Get Job Version


Gets the job version as an enterprise geodatabase connection file to process data in a version.


  • The Input Job ID must be for a job that currently exists in the repository. This job must have a data workspace and a parent version already associated with it.

  • This tool is typically used in a model to retrieve the job's version. 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 this tool (Get Job Version), and the parent version would be retrieved using the Get Job Parent Version tool.

ParameterExplanationData Type

The ID for the job whose version is to be retrieved.


The Workflow Manager database connection file that contains the job information. If no connection file is specified, the current default workflow manager database in the project is used.
