Start and stop nodes are not exported in "Sync Out" using ArcGIS Geodatabase features with ModelBuilder

Product(s): WaterGEMS, SewerGEMS, HAMMER
Version(s): 10.XX.XX.XX, 08.11.XX.XX
Area: Modeling


While using data source type "ArcGIS Geodatabase Features" using ModelBuilder in ArcGIS, 'Start Node' and 'Stop node' are not exported in "sync out". All other properties come. Why is this occurring?

Problem ID#: 65482


For versions 10.02.03.XX and above

This issue is patched for CONNECT Edition Update 2.3 (v for WaterGEMS and HAMMER and v for SewerGEMS) and future builds. Please contact Bentley Technical Support for more information.

For older versions

The Sync Out function will update every element in the target source that also exists in the model. The data used to update the target source is all based on the mapped fields established in ModelBuilder. This does not include the start and stop nodes, as these are not properties that can be mapped to in ModelBuilder when using the ArcGIS Geodatabase Feature. With this source file type, the ends of a pipe have a certain coordinate and as long a node is within the tolerance of that end point, the pipe will attach to the end node.

If you need to include start and stop nodes in the Sync Out function, try syncing out to a different file type, like an Excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet would need to be set up with column headers for data you want to sync out, or you will not be map the model data to the spreadsheet.
