You can deploy the parcel fabric on a file geodatabase, a mobile geodatabase, or an enterprise geodatabase. Parcel fabric versions must be deployed on their minimum required release versions of ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Enterprise and on their minimum supported database versions.
The parcel fabric uses the following two deployment types:
- Enterprise deployment—For a multiuser editing environment
- Single-user deployment—For a single-user editing environment
These deployments have the following ArcGIS platform compatibility requirements:
|Deployment||Number of editors||Geodatabase||ArcGIS Pro license level|
Deploy in an enterprise environment
In an enterprise environment, the parcel fabric is edited and maintained using a services-based architecture. A services-based architecture allows you to share the parcel fabric across all platforms (desktop, mobile, and web), and different workflows can be enabled on different clients in the field and in the office.
ArcGIS Enterprise uses web services and can be installed on-premises or in a cloud-based environment.
The benefits of deploying the parcel fabric in an enterprise environment include the following:
- Improved scalability and performance. Maintain large parcel fabrics in a multiuser environment.
- Branch versioning. Work with historic moments.
- Management of user types, roles, and privileges.
- Enhanced editor tracking capabilities with branch versioning. For example, you can track users who delete features within a version.
- Use of web services. Share and edit data across multiple clients (desktop, web, and mobile) in real time.
- Integration with external business systems and automation using the parcel fabric REST API.
Parcel fabric versions and ArcGIS platform compatibility
Use the table below to determine which versions of ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Enterprise are required for your parcel fabric version.
|Parcel fabric version||ArcGIS Pro releases||ArcGIS Enterprise release|
The parcel fabric version is not backward compatible. For example, a version 2 parcel fabric is not compatible with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7.1. The minimum required ArcGIS Pro release, the parcel fabric version, and the minimum ArcGIS Enterprise release numbers must match the numbers in the table above.
Parcel fabric versions and database compatibility
The following table shows the minimum supported database versions that are compatible with parcel fabric versions:
|Parcel fabric version||Supported PostgreSQL versions||Supported MicrosoftSQL Server version||Supported Microsoft Azure SQL Database version||Supported Oracleversion||Supported Oracle cloud versions|
9.5.12, 9.6.15, 10.7, 11.2
9.6.15, 10.12, 11.7
9.6.17, 10.12, 11.7, 12.2
10.14, 11.9, 12.4
10.17, 11.12, 12.7, 13.3
Parcel fabric enterprise and single-user deployments require the following licensing:
|Deployment||Required ArcGIS Pro license level||Includes||Web and mobile clients|
GIS Professional user type (Standard/Advanced) and the ArcGIS Parcel Fabric user type extension
ArcGIS Parcel Fabric add-on license is required
ArcGIS Pro license (Standard/Advanced)
The ArcGIS Parcel Fabric user type extension is applicable to ArcGIS Pro 2.5 or later and ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8 or later. In an enterprise deployment, the license level is assigned to the Named User as a ArcGIS Parcel Fabric.
In an enterprise deployment, the parcel fabric is published to Portal for ArcGIS. It is recommended that you publish your parcel fabric to the same portal that is used to manage licenses.
In an enterprise deployment, if you license ArcGIS Pro using Single Use, Named User in ArcGIS Online, or Concurrent Use licensing, the administrator of the portal hosting the parcel fabric service must assign the ArcGIS Parcel Fabric user type extension as a separate add-on license to the appropriate portal users.
