Problem: Severe issue with ArcGIS Pro 2.2 Patch 2

Description

Esri has discovered a severe issue with an editing workflow in ArcGIS Pro 2.2 Patch 2 (2.2.2) that may incorrectly set feature attribute field values to ‘Null’ when using the Attributes pane.

Cause

This problem occurs when multiple features are selected in the tree view of the Attributes pane. If the Tab key is used to navigate between cells in the data grid, tabbing through a cell that displays “(Different values)” sets the field to ‘Null’.

Solution or Workaround

Esri strongly recommends to uninstall the patch.

  1. On Windows, open the Control Panel.
  2. Search for View installed updates. Click this option.
  3. Right-click ‘ArcGIS Pro 2.2 Patch 2 (2.2.2)’ and select Uninstall.

If the previous patch—ArcGIS Pro 2.2 Patch 1 (2.2.1)—is not installed, it can be downloaded from My Esri.

How will Esri correct the issue?

ArcGIS Pro 2.2 Patch 3 (2.2.3) becomes available in early October 2018 and includes a fix for this issue, as well as the other software improvements included with Patches 1 and 2. ArcGIS Pro 2.2 Patch 2 (2.2.2) is no longer available for download.

For continued updates and information regarding this problem, refer to the ArcGIS Pro 2.2.2 announcement on GeoNet.

Update 05 Oct 2018: ArcGIS Pro 2.2 Patch 3 (2.2.3) is available for download from My Esri.

FAQ: How do you determine the version of an enterprise (ArcSDE) geodatabase in Catalog?

To determine the enterprise geodatabase version you are using:

  • Right-click the database connection in the Catalog tree and click Properties > General Tab.

Database Properties

  • The Upgrade Status indicates the geodatabase version you are using.
  • If the Upgrade Status indicates that the geodatabase matches the ArcGIS release you are using, your geodatabase is compatible with your ArcGIS release, and you do not need to upgrade the geodatabase.
  • If system tables or stored procedures need to be upgraded, the text will state that your geodatabase can be upgraded and the Upgrade Geodatabase button will be active.

I’ve had a number of requests of how to debug a scheduled python script (especially when issues occur), and write the output to a text file.

Please find below a simple python script that I hope will help others to debug their scripts: Continue reading
