Ability to support syncing ArcGIS Online with Local Repository to Keep Changes

Under Consideration

  • 510

  • We need a way to support replication (2 way) or a versioning scenario where we want to load data weekly to ArcGIS Online that syncs with a service already there, so changes done in the field, can be synced with updates that are newly uploaded, where we don't lose the updates, by overwriting the service, or having to create multiple copies of the service, or have to extract the file out as a shapefile, then query on what has changed in the extraction and then have to query the new layer and look for those records, then drop those records (since they have been updated in the field), and then do an append/merge on the newly created combination of what is extracted from CAMA, and what is extracted from ArcGIS Online before reloading the service as an overwrite to the existing service.

    If you supported GDB as an output or better yet, link the GDB directly to our internal system, some way, then we could capture the photos taken in the field as well to our underlying enterprise GIS system.

We definitely need this.

I kept hearing that syncing between desktop edits and online hosted services would come at 10.2.  I'm still waiting and its preventing the Online platform from going company wide. 3rd parties have accomplished syncing/replication with hosted features for PCs and tablets. How come Desktop, made for the GIS power user, cannot push bulk feature edits or change underlying properties of a hosted feature service?

2-way replication seems imaginary when we can't even properly see/adjust photo attachments and GlobalID/Editor/Creator fields aren't honored at the time of publishing. Guess we can dream.

This is the main reason I use Amazon EC2 machines to host my services and perfom syncing through geodata services. Great Idea!

I like this idea. We are starting to share via AGO and would like to extend the usefullness of the service
without having a full FTE admin it.
