Additional Information

This works in Pro 2.2 when choosing a reasonable coordinate system nearby. It is not expected to work for a coordinate system way off where the data is in a completely different extent. For the case in the bug, the data is not within the extent of the chosen coordinate system. If desired, change the original query to add an st_transform. For example: 'select OBJECTID,JOIN,RAST,RASTER,sde.st_transform(SHAPE,3735) SHAPE from QATEST50.TESTSPATIAL'
