When using the SynchronizeChanges function in Python (i.e., arcpy.SynchronizeChanges_management) to sync changes between replicas, the script fails if the 'reconcile' parameter is used and there is no space added to the end of the parameter before the closing double-quotation mark.

Additional Information

ArcGIS Desktop (including ArcGIS Engine and ArcObjects) is in mature support and will be retired March 1, 2026. Mature support means the end of functionality-based patches and hotfixes; therefore, this issue will not be addressed. There are no plans for future releases of ArcGIS Desktop, and it is recommended that you migrate to ArcGIS Pro. See Migrate from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro for more information.


Add space at the end of the parameter by changing "RECONCILE" to "RECONCILE ".
