Get Local Copy (Production Mapping)
Gets a local copy of a file stored inside the Product Library. It allows you to view or edit a file without exclusively locking the file in a Product Library. Changes made to the local copy are not tracked in the Product Library.
A product library stores information and data required for cartographic and digital data production in a geodatabase. Esri 制图和制表解决方案 store business rules, documents, and spatial information inside a product library.
The Product Library Workspace must be a geodatabase.
The file must be contained within the Product Library.
The Copy Location must be a folder on the user’s local computer.
The Product Library Path to the Item is the path to the particular Product Library tree node. A product library path is a double-colon-delimited string (::) in this format: Solution Name::Product Class Name::Series Name::Product Name::Instance Name::AOI Name::File Name.
To determine a product library path, browse to an item in the Product Library window, right-click it, and click Copy As Path. The product library path will be placed on the clipboard. You can paste it into any parameter that requires a product library path.
This tool returns a string that represents a path to the local copy. To use this tool in ModelBuilder, insert the Calculate Value tool to convert the returned string to another data type. For example, to create a model that gets a local copy of an instance database and upgrades it using the Upgrade Production Database tool, connect Get Local Copy to Calculate Value through a precondition. Calculate Value can convert the string returned by Get Local Copy to a workspace. The model would look similar to the following image:The expression r"%Copied File Item%" is the output data variable of Get Local Copy. Calculate Value converts this string into the data type listed in the Data type field. The dashed line connecting the output data variable to Calculate Value indicates that Copied File Item is a precondition in Calculate Value. You can then connect the output data variable (workspace) of Calculate Value to the Upgrade Production Database tool.
Path to the product library workspace.
The path to the product library level that contains the files you want to view. This is specified as Solution Name::Product Class Name::Series Name::Product Name::Instance Name::AOI Name::File Name.
The folder to where the file will be copied. Any existing local copies of the file will be overwritten.
Product library schema owner name. Set this parameter if the user account specified in product_library_workspace is not the schema owner. This applies only to product libraries stored in enterprise geodatabases.
The following stand-alone script demonstrates how to use the PLGetLocalCopy tool.
