Check Out File As Database (Production Mapping)
Checks out an instance database file (.mdf) from a Product Library. This tool is similar to the 生产化制图 (Production Mapping) Check Out File geoprocessing tool but returns a workspace as the checked out file. Use this tool in ModelBuilder to chain the output workspace (the database .mdf file) to another tool as an input parameter.
For example, in ModelBuilder, you can use this tool's output workspace as the Workspace for Production Database input parameter in the Upgrade Production Database tool.
Checkout locks a file. A file can only be checked out by one person.
The Product Library Workspace must be a geodatabase.
The Product Library Path 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.
Checkout creates a local copy of the file in the location indicated by Check Out Path. Check Out Path must be a folder.
Path to the product library workspace.
The product library path to the item. This is specified as Solution Name::Product Class Name::Series Name::Product Name::Instance Name::AOI Name::File Name.
The folder that will contain the checked out file.
Indicates whether the checkout process overwrites a local copy of the file if it exists.
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 example demonstrates how to use the PLCheckOutFileAsDatabase tool.
