Alter Mosaic Dataset Schema (Data Management)

Summary

Defines the editing operations that nonowners have when editing a mosaic dataset in an enterprise geodatabase.

This tool prevents schema-locking issues that can occur when a mosaic dataset is stored in an enterprise geodatabase. The owner of the geodatabase runs this tool to create side tables and fields that may be needed by the user. The owner must also grant the proper permissions to allow users to insert, update, or delete records.

Usage

  • This tool is only needed when creating a mosaic dataset in an enterprise geodatabase and a nonowner will be editing the mosaic dataset.

  • Use this tool to set up a mosaic dataset that will be published as an image service allowing users to upload or edit the items. A user can only upload data if the raster type is allowed by the mosaic dataset.

  • If a nonowner attempts to perform an operation that is not allowed, the operation will fail.

  • The Raster Types parameter values specified by this tool control which rasters a nonowner can add using the Add Rasters To Mosaic Dataset tool. If the nonowner tries to add a raster type that has not been specified by this tool, the Add Rasters To Mosaic Dataset tool will fail.

  • If you run this tool without choosing any raster types, only the additional mosaic dataset tables will be created. These tables include overview, seamline, color correction, stereo, cell size levels, status, error, and permissions.
