Modelbuilder "Unable to update Pipe <Label> geometry; one object in the data-source" message

  Applies To 
  Product(s): WaterGEMS
  Area:  Modeling
  Original Author: Jesse Dringoli, Bentley Technical Support Group

Deleted: The one to many feature has been added


When attempting to update with Modelbuilder, why do I see the following

"Unable to update Pipe <Label> geometry; one object in the data-source
maps to multiple objects in the model."

Why am I not able to update my model after changing the geometry of the
data source, when using the GIS-ID feature?

Problem ID#: 42819


At this time, WaterGEMS and WaterCAD do not support cascading geometry
updates through one-to-many element mappings. Meaning, if you use the
GIS-ID feature to map a single element in the data source to multiple
elements in the model, changes to the geometry (X/Y of nodes/vertexes)
will not update in the model on subsequent Modelbuilder updates.

This type of update is very complex in some situations, so support will
be added for it in a future version. Cascading of data (attribute
mapping) is supported across one-to-many element-mappings, but not
cascading of geometry.
