Reconciling and posting event data


The ability to reconcile and post in Event Editor is based on your deployment's configuration.

When editing data from an enterprise geodatabase, you may want to reconcile or post edits from one version to another. These tasks can be accomplished using the Reconcile and Post feature in Event Editor by following the steps below.


There should be preexisting versions of your database available for use.

  1. Open Event Editor and, if prompted, sign in to Portal for ArcGIS or ArcGIS Online.
  2. Click the Edit tab.
  3. In the Versioning group, click the Reconcile & Post button Reconcile & Post.

    The Reconcile and Post dialog box appears.

    Reconcile and Post with Roads and Highways conflict prevention enabled
  4. Click the Target Version drop-down arrow to choose the database version that is the parent.
  5. Check the Release all locks on post check box if you want all event locks acquired during editing to be released when posting.
  6. If you want to only reconcile the data from your target version, click Reconcile.

    If you want to both reconcile and post your data to your target version, click Reconcile and Post.

    The Reconcile & Post tool does not handle conflict detection. If there are conflicts between the edit and target version, an error message will appear and Reconcile and Post will fail. Under this circumstance, conflict resolution must be done using ArcMap. If Roads and Highways conflict prevention is enabled, conflicts on routes and events are not introduced.

    A confirmation message appears at bottom right once data is reconciled or reconciled and posted successfully.
