ArcGIS for Server
This issue was not reproducible when tested by the development team. Issues may be given this status when they cannot be reproduced or are no longer relevant in a development version of the software, but a specific fix was not installed to address the issue. The issue's Additional Information section may contain further explanation.
This publishes and works fine when following the steps. However, as described by the steps, and the way the publishing process works, this does not attempt to save the output into the SDE instance. It always converts and saves the file into a scratch geodatabase within the ArcGIS Server jobs directory. To save the final result to SDE, users are required to create a workflow inside a model or a script.
Write the output table to a file geodatabase instead.
