An overview of the Workspace toolset

The Workspace toolset comprises a set of tools to create the data storage structures used by ArcGIS.


Clear Workspace Cache

Clears any enterprise geodatabase workspaces from the enterprise geodatabase workspace cache.

Create Cloud Storage Connection File

Creates a connection file for ArcGIS-supported cloud storage. It allows existing raster geoprocessing tools to write cloud raster format (CRF) datasets into the cloud storage bucket or read raster datasets (not limited to CRF) stored in the cloud storage as input.

Create Database Connection

Creates a file that ArcGIS uses to connect to a database or enterprise geodatabase.

Create Feature Dataset

Creates a feature dataset in the output location—an existing enterprise or file geodatabase.

Create File GDB

Creates a file geodatabase in a folder.

Create Folder

Creates a folder in the specified location.

Create Spatial Type

Adds the ST_Geometry SQL type, subtypes, and functions to an Oracle or PostgreSQL database. This allows you to use the ST_Geometry SQL type to store geometries in a database that does not contain a geodatabase. You can also use this tool to upgrade the existing ST_Geometry type, subtypes, and functions in an Oracle or PostgreSQL database.

Create SQLite Database

Creates an ST_Geometry, a SpatiaLite, or a GeoPackage database.

Export XML Workspace Document

Creates a readable XML document of the geodatabase contents.

Import XML Workspace Document

Imports the contents of an XML workspace document into an existing geodatabase.

Update Geodatabase Connection Properties To Branch

Updates an enterprise geodatabase connection to work with branch versioning.
