Post Version (Data Management)


Posting is the process of applying the current edit session to the reconciled target version during version geodatabase editing. Before a version can be posted, it must be reconciled with a target version and all conflicts must be resolved.


This is a deprecated tool. The Reconcile Versions tool should be used to post versions following a reconcile.


  • Posting synchronizes the edit version with the reconciled version and saves the data.

  • Posting can't be undone since you are applying changes to a version that you are not currently editing.

  • If the reconciled version is modified between reconciling and posting, you will be notified to reconcile again before posting.
