ArcGIS Server Configurations

Cartegraph supports several ArcGIS Server for Windows configurations that are used in the Manage Servers feature in the GIS Integration feature.

  • The Server Name can be any unique name up to 50 characters.
  • The Server URL should be the URL to access the server feature layer desired for the integration.
  • The Portal URL is used to access the portal feature layer and is used in combination with the Server URL, for Portal credentials configuration settings only.
  • The User Name and Password should be the same credentials used for a valid ArcGIS Online sign in, for ArcGIS for Server credentials, ArcGIS Online credentials, and Portal credentials Configuration settings only.

Configuration and Required Fields

  • Unsecured: Server Name, Server URL
  • ArcGIS for Server credentials: Server Name, Server URL, User Name, Password
  • ArcGIS for Online credentials: Server Name, Server URL, User Name, Password
  • Portal credentials: Server Name, Server URL, Portal URL, User Name, Password

ArcGIS Server

This server publishes the GIS data, provides access to the data from the Cartegraph environment. It has two installed components: ArcGIS for Server and the Cartegraph SOE (Server Object Extension). These components expose the GIS data as RESTful URLs, which must be accessible from the Cartegraph Application Server. When using secure services with GIS Integrations in Cartegraph a Server Name, Server URL, User Name, and Password are required. Only a Server Name and Server URL are necessary for an unsecured service. This must be ArcGIS Server for Windows.

Server URL

  • Usually the URL of (unfederated) ArcServer
  • In the case of Portal, usually the URL of (federated) ArcServer
  • Examples
    • http://[server.domain.com]:6080/ArcGIS
    • http://devarcserv102:6080/arcgis
    • http://demo.cartegraph.com/arcgis

Unsecured

  • Unsecured configuration
  • Visible Feature Layers are Public

Secured

  • ArcGIS for Server credentials configuration
  • Requires Server Admin credentials
  • Visible Feature Layers are Public or Secured

ArcGIS Online

Online access provides the ability to access GIS data from Esri's cloud platform. It allows organizations to use web services as feature layers for maps. These feature layers expose the GIS data as RESTful URLs, which must be accessible from the Cartegraph Application Server. When using secure services with GIS Integrations in Cartegraph a Server Name, Server URL, User Name, and Password are required. Only a Server Name and Server URL are necessary for an unsecured service.

Unsecured

  • Unsecured configuration
  • Server URL
    • Service URL of Feature Layers in ArcGIS Online
    • Examples
      • https://[service.arcgis.com/key]/
      • https://services3.arcgis.com/CB76hVWjiRk4G0xu/arcgis
  • Public visible feature layers
    • Pass-through* to a secured server
      • Server credentials would be saved with the Feature Layer when it is created.
      • It generates a proxy URL that is different than the above URL.
    • Hosted*

Secured

  • ArcGIS Online credentials configuration
  • Server URL is the Service URL of Feature Layer(s) in ArcGIS Online
  • Requires ArcGIS Online credentials
  • Public or secured visible feature layers—shared with Organization or Groups that the credential's owners belong to
    • Pass-through* to a secured server
      • Server credentials would be saved with the Feature Layer when it is created.
      • It generates a proxy URL that is different than the public ArcGIS Online URL above.
    • Hosted*

Portal for ArcGIS Server

Portal provides access to GIS data from an on-premises site for an Organization. It gives the organization the ability to host the data in a secure environment on their local network. These components expose the GIS data as RESTful URLs, which must be accessible from the Cartegraph Application Server. When using secure services with GIS Integrations in Cartegraph a Server Name, Server URL, Portal URL, User Name, and Password are required. Only a Server Name and Server URL are necessary for an unsecured service.

Unsecured

  • Unsecured configuration
  • Server URL
    • Is the URL of the Portal
    • For example, https://[portal.domain.com]/arcgis/home
  • Visible Feature Layers
    • Public
      • Hosted*
      • Pass-through* to a secured server
        • Server credentials would be saved with the Feature Layer when it is created.
        • It generates a proxy URL that is different than the Portal URL.

Secured

  • Portal Credentials configuration
  • Server URL is the Service URL of the Feature Layer
  • Portal URL is the URL of the Portal
  • Requires Portal credentials
  • Visible Feature Layers
    • Public or Secured—shared with organizations or groups that the credential's owners belong to
      • Hosted*
      • Pass-through* to a secured server if Server credentials would be saved with the Feature Layer when it is created

Definitions

Hosted Feature Layer: When a Feature Layers is published  from ArcMap and hosted on ArcGIS Online

Pass-Through Feature Layer to Secured Server: When a Feature Layer is created in ArcGIS Online using the Rest endpoint (URL) of the service in ArcGIS Server thus making ArcGIS Online act as a proxy.

Service URL for Online and Feature Layers

To get the Service URL for Online and Portal Feature Layers, complete the following steps:

  1. Go to the Gallery.
  2. Find the Feature Layer.
  3. Hover over the Feature Layer and click Details.
  4. Under Layers, click on one of the layers.
  5. A window with details about the selected layer opens.
    The Server URL is everything before the /rest/services.
