Share web layers with linear referencing capability

Web maps can be authored using ArcGIS Pro. You can choose to add the data layers you intend to use, zoom to the extent, select a basemap, include a description of the map, and save it as your own item in Portal for ArcGIS for use in the Event Editor web application.

You can share your web layers with linear referencing capability by performing the following steps.

  1. Log in to ArcGIS Pro with your portal credentials. You need a portal that has ArcGIS Server already federated.
  2. Create a map in an ArcGIS Pro project, and create the appropriate routes; event layers; and optionally, a redline layer.
  3. To share a web feature layer, do one of the following:
    • Share the map and all of its layers as a web layer. On the Share tab, in the Share As group, click Publish Web Layer Publish Web Layer.
    • Share selected layers from the map as a web layer. Select the layers in the Contents pane. Right-click the selected layers, point to the Sharing pull-right menu, and click Share As Web Layer Publish Web Layer.

    The Share As Web Layer pane appears.

  4. Provide the name for the web layer. By default, the web layer will be saved to My Content. You can save the web layer to a folder in My Content by typing the folder name or clicking the browse buttonBrowse to browse to an existing folder.

    Separate the name of the new or existing folder and the web layer name with a backslash, for example, Folder\WebLayerName. For more information, see Specifying a folder.

  5. For Layer Type, click Features.
  6. If your active portal is ArcGIS Enterprise and you want to reference datasets in a registered enterprise database, check Reference registered data. Enabling Reference registered data will include a map image layer.

    Do not choose the Copy all data option.

  7. Complete the Summary and Tags fields.
  8. Specify how the web layer will be shared:
    • My Content—This option only references content in your personal workspace named My Content. Your content is inaccessible to other users.
    • My Organization—This option allows your content to be shared with all authenticated users in the organization.
    • Everyone—This option makes your content public. Anyone can access and see it.
    • Groups—You can share your content with groups you belong to and their members.
