Analyze your GIS resource

Analyzing helps identify performance delays and errors that you need to address before you can share your GIS resource as a package, web layer, web map, or web scene. When you click Analyze in a packaging or sharing pane, the Messages tab appears with a list of issues. Once you've addressed these issues, your GIS resource is ready to package or share as a web layer or web map.

Analyzer messages

When analyzing your GIS resource, you'll notice two types of messages on the Messages tab. You can right-click each message to get a quick suggestion on how to address that specific issue. This will also give you access to a help topic with more information, such as additional repair options. The item in bold is the default approach for addressing each issue.
