Basic Designer Configuration
The sample data provided with the ArcFM Solution makes extensive use of model names and autoupdaters to support the functionality of tools and components that make editing more productive in ArcMap. This topic lists the feature classes and fields to which model names and autoupdaters are assigned in a database such as Minerville_Designer. This page gives the basic configuration for Designer. The basic ArcFM configuration must be performed in addition. Designer tools like Cable Pulling require additional configuration. See the Configuring ArcFM Solution section for information about configuring specific Designer tools.
If you are converting an ArcFM geodatabase to Designer, you must first create the ArcFM Solution system tables (four Designer-specific tables are added) and convert them to Designer objects.
All feature classes
Assign Designer field model names (DESIGNID, WORKLOCATIONID, WORKREQUESTID, WORKFLOWSTATUS, WORKFUNCTION)
Design feature class
Assign the model name DESIGN
WorkLocation feature class
Assign the model name WORKLOCATION
WorkRequest feature class
Assign the model name WORKREQUEST
Assign the MM Workrequest Workflow Status domain to the WORKFLOWSTATUS field
Feature Classes to remain unposted
The MMDONOTPOST model name may be assigned to any feature class that you wish to NOT be included when posting a design. This model name should be assigned ONLY to features that are not maintained in the geodatabase and exist within the design only for the lifetime of the design (e.g., Work Locations).
Automatically assign "remove" work function to banked feature classes
The work function for a banked feature class (e.g. transformer) will be updated to "remove" if ALL the units' (e.g. transformer units) work functions under the feature are set to "remove" AND the REMOVEBANK model name is assigned to that banked feature class. If the work function is not set to "remove" for ALL units under the banked feature class, the banked feature class work function will be set to "replace" regardless of whether the REMOVEBANK model name is assigned to that banked feature class.
