Add CUs and Favorites for Designer

These steps are only necessary for those who use Mobile Designer.

Perform the following steps on your initial extract (backdrop) database.

  1. In ArcCatalog, select the backdrop database and open the CU Administration tool. Click Execute on the Update Schema tab. This creates the following tables.
    • MM_CU_ATTRIBUTES

    • MM_CU_DOMAINFILTER

    • MM_CU_EXTENDED_DATA

    • MM_CU_LIBRARY

    • MM_CU_SEARCH_XML

    • MM_CU_SYS_PALETTES_XML

  2. Close the CU Administration tool.
  3. Restart ArcCatalog.
  4. In ArcCatalog, log in to the Enterprise database and open the System Favorites Manager.
  5. On the Compatible Units tab, export the Compatible Units and (optionally) the System Favorites you wish to make available in the field.
  6. Click Export. Give the exported XML file a name and click Save. If you're exporting both CU and favorites, you will have multiple exported XML files.
  7. Click OK to dismiss the System Favorites Manager.
  8. Select the Backdrop database and open the System Favorites Manager.
  9. On the Compatible Units tab, expand the Compatible Units node and delete all CUs. In the System Favorites list, delete any favorites you intend to import. If you don't delete the existing CUs and system favorites, you'll have duplicates after importing in the next step.
  10. Select the node that corresponds to the XML you're importing (i.e., select Compatible Units node to import CUs) and import the XML you exported in previous steps.
  11. Click OK to dismiss the System Favorites Manager.
  12. Select the backdrop database and open the CU Administration tool.
  13. Select the Migrate Data tab and click the Upgrade Compatible Units button.
  14. Close the CU Administration tool.
