Update Subnetwork

  • URL:http:<utilitynetworkservice-url>/updateSubnetwork(POST only)
  • Version Introduced:10.6


A subnetwork is updated by calling the updateSubnetwork operation. With this operation, one or all of the subnetworks in a single tier can be updated. When a subnetwork is updated, four things can occur; the Subnetwork Name attribute is updated for all features in the subnetwork, the record representing the subnetwork inside the SubnetLine class is refreshed, the Subnetworks table is updated and finally diagrams are generated or updated for the subnetwork.

The ArcGIS Utility Network Management extension is required to use these resources.
