I want to make changes in a feature attribute table that is an edge source of a Network dataset. In the next step, I need to rebuild the Network to make the changes take efect.

The problem is that, when I open the editor session and make changes in attribute table, then when I want to close the session the script crashes.

Here is a sample of my code:

import arcpy
from arcpy import env

gdb = r"C:\GDB\NetworkGDB.gdb"
env.workspace = gdb
env.overwriteOutput = True

edt = arcpy.da.Editor(gdb)
WHERE = '"OBJECTID_12" = 2'
direcao = "yes" #This value was set by another process that's indeppend on this one... Inclusive I tried a fixed value like in this example

with arcpy.da.UpdateCursor("Network_nd_roads",["OBJECTID_12","osm_oneway"],     WHERE) as cursor:
    for lin in cursor:
        txtLog = "Change value from " + lin[1] + " to " + direcao
        escreverArquivoLog(logFile,txtLog) #function to write a logfile
        lin[1] = direcao
        escreverArquivoLog(logFile,"Change suceed!!!")

escreverArquivoLog(logFile,u"Closing edition...")
edt.stopEditing(True) #-----HERE HAPPENS THE ERROR!!------

The error is:

File: C:\SCRIPT\Python\OneWayRules.py

Message: RuntimeError: A network source with the specified name don't exist.

ArcPy Message: ERROR 999999: Fail to execute function. User don't have permission to execute the operation. [N_1_Desc] An error happens when executing (BuildNetwork).

But as you can see, I dont call BuildNetwork function yet, I just make changes in the edige source of my Network.

------ UPDATE -------

As blord-castillo says, I tryed to use with block in my edition and the startOperation(),stopOperation() inside this block, but the error occurs in __exit__ Attribute. Folow my actual code:

with edt.startEditing() as ed:
    WHERE = '"OBJECTID_12" = 2'
        ed.startOperation ()
        with arcpy.da.UpdateCursor(roadsLayer,["OBJECTID_12","osm_oneway"], WHERE) as cursor:
            for lin in cursor:
                txtLog = "Aterar o valor de " + lin[1] + " para " + direcao
                lin[1] = "yes"

The error stil appearing in this code, on exit statement.

  • Have you tried checking out the NA license first? arcpy.CheckOutExtension('Network') – crmackey Oct 16 '15 at 14:48
  • Yes, this is checked out – José Roberto Ribeiro Filho Oct 16 '15 at 15:00
  • I think Build Network is called when you close the edit session with a dirty areas in your network. You reference row[0] but I do not see where row is ever defined? Is "yes" a valid value for your evaluator for your network dataset (normally it is not)? Try putting edt.startOperation() before your cursor block and edt.stopOperation() after your cursor block. Alternately, try using a with block for your edit session instead of explicitly starting and stopping (startOperation and stopOperation are built into the with block). – blord-castillo Oct 16 '15 at 19:57
  • Post eddited, the row[0] is a value of the FID I want to edit. The value "yes" is permited and used in other rows in this field. I will try the operation statement and see if it works... – José Roberto Ribeiro Filho Oct 16 '15 at 20:20
  • -----Update---- Still occurring the permission error... but the network sorce error stopped... – José Roberto Ribeiro Filho Oct 16 '15 at 20:35
