An XML document with the schema definition of a geodatabase (ESRI Format) is available to be restored in another server (UPDM definition 2018). The definition was created with the spatial reference 102968 (NAD_1983_2011_Michigan_GeoRef_Meters). I t is required to apply this schema to a brand new geodatabase but using the spatial reference WGS84.

The tool Import XML workspace does not have the option to change the spatial reference.

This document is a one-line xml with a huge amount of data. It is quite cumbersome to change the spatial reference, moreover if you do not have the knowledge of the xml schema.

Is there a way to automatically change the spatial reference either in the XML or in the import process?

Using Enteprise Architect sparx System, we can manipulate the XML file before loading to the new GDB.
