I have heaps of tables to update as part of data management and transition process. All feature classes are identically kept under separate environments (e.g., SDE, gdb and MapInfo)
I am using FME to convert and update the datasets first from shapefile to SDE (using GEODATABASE_SDE writer), then data transition to FILEGDB and MITAB etc. To automate and reduce the time I am creating multi-writer script to update the datasets identically as follows:
Multi-writer (FME) script runs well. It is writing the data in specified feature datasets (in SDE) but is not writing identically in FILEGDB (creating feature classes openly at the end in GDB).
I searched through docs.safe.com and found that “The writer exports data to a new or existing File Geodatabase using the File Geodatabase API. Note that, because they are considered to have complex behavior, the Geodatabase API writer does not support writing to tables that participate in a relationship.)
GEODATABASE_SDE appears with the ‘format parameters’ to specify the featuredataset. However, it is not available in FILEGDB.
I guess, I am not giving the correct parameters.
Anyone using multi-writers through FME got an idea to deal with, please share knowledge and help.
My results are GEODATABASE_SDE writer
Whereas, feature classes should sit in feature dataset 'Administrative'.
