Share as web layers

Mit der Location Referencing-Lizenz verfügbar.

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. Web maps can be authored and made editable by sharing with branch versioning enabled.

Share as web layers with linear referencing capability

You can share your web layers with the linear referencing capability.

  1. Sign in to ArcGIS Pro with your portal credentials. It must be a portal with a federated ArcGIS Server site.
  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:
    • Geben Sie die Karte und alle darin enthaltenen Layer als Web-Layer frei. Klicken Sie auf der Registerkarte Freigeben in der Gruppe Freigeben als auf Web-Layer veröffentlichen Web-Layer veröffentlichen.
    • Geben Sie die ausgewählten Layer der Karte als Web-Layer frei. Wählen Sie die Layer im Bereich Inhalt aus. Klicken Sie mit der rechten Maustaste auf die ausgewählten Layer, zeigen Sie auf das Menü Freigabe, und klicken Sie auf Als Web-Layer freigeben Web-Layer veröffentlichen.

    Der Bereich Als Web-Layer freigeben wird angezeigt.

  4. Geben Sie einen Namen für den Web-Layer ein.
  5. For Layer Type, click Feature.
  6. Wenn ArcGIS Enterprise Ihr aktives Portal ist und Sie Datasets in einer registrierten Enterprise-Datenbank referenzieren möchten, aktivieren Sie die Option Registrierte Daten referenzieren. Durch die Aktivierung der Option Registrierte Daten referenzieren wird ein Kartenbild-Layer einbezogen.

    Do not choose the Copy all data option.

  7. Füllen Sie die Felder Zusammenfassung und Tags aus.
  8. Specify how the web layer will be shared:
    • Eigene Organisation: Mit dieser Option können Ihre Inhalte für alle authentifizierten Benutzer in der Organisation freigegeben werden.
    • Alle: Mit dieser Option werden Ihre Inhalte veröffentlicht. Jeder kann darauf zugreifen.
    • Gruppen: Sie können Ihre Inhalte für Gruppen, denen Sie angehören, und für deren Mitglieder freigeben.


    The Share with options will vary when sharing to ArcGIS Enterprise using the Reference registered data option.

    The following image is an example.

  9. Click the Configuration tab.
  10. Check the Linear Referencing check box under Capabilities.
  11. Click Analyze to check for any errors or issues. You must resolve all errors.
  12. Once validated, click Publish to share your web layer using the default configuration.
    Configuration tab

Your web layer is now published with linear referencing capability.

Share as web layers with linear referencing and version management

Version management provides management capabilities for editing feature services such as:

  • Creating, modifying, deleting, and switching to a feature service version
  • Reconciling and posting edits from a child version to the default version
  • Undoing, redoing, saving, and discarding individual edits that have been made on a feature service version in an edit session

Purpose of sharing dataCapabilities needed while publishingGeodatabase connection type

For multiuser editing scenarios when data is accessed directly from the enterprise geodatabase—also known as traditional versioning

For multiuser editing scenarios when data is accessed via feature services with undo and redo ability—also known as branch versioning

To perform editing activities using feature services, the version management capability should be turned on while publishing data.

For more information about version management strategies, see Enterprise data management strategies.

Data preparation

Sharing web layers with linear referencing capability and version management requires some data preparation steps. Use the following steps to prepare your data prior to publishing:

  1. Do all data loading using ArcGIS Pro prior to changing your geodatabase connection type (step 3) and registration (step 4).
  2. Depending on whether your data is not versioned or traditionally versioned, you must do the following:
    • If your data is not using any versioning, proceed to step 3.
    • If your data is already traditionally versioned, unregister each feature class and table as versioned. In ArcGIS Pro, right-click each feature class or table in the Catalog pane and click Manage > Unregister As Versioned.

    For more information on the differences between traditional and branch versioning in ArcGIS Pro, see Overview of versioning.

  3. Your geodatabase connection must be explicitly set to the branch versioning connection type. Right-click the geodatabase in the Catalog pane and click Geodatabase Connection Properties. On the Geodatabase Connection Properties dialog box, choose Branch under Versioning Type.

    You can also change your geodatabase connection type to branch versioning using the Update Geodatabase Connection Properties To Branch geoprocessing tool.


    The branch versioning option is only available for 10.6 or later enterprise geodatabases. For more information on minimum database platform requirements, see Register a dataset as branch versioned.

  4. All data layers within the database must have:
    • Global IDs, except locks, event behavior, and metadata tables.

      If Global IDs are not present, right-click a feature class or table in the Catalog pane and click Manage > Add Global IDs.

    • Enable editor tracking with UTC time, except for locks, event behavior, and metadata tables.

    Check other requirements before registering data as branch versioned.

  5. Register the data layer in your database as branch versioned, except locks, event behavior, and metadata tables. Right-click a feature class or table in the Catalog pane and click Manage > Register As Versioned to register it as branch versioned.

    Once registered as branch versioned, data can no longer be edited when accessed directly from the database connection. Branch versioned data can only be edited through feature services.

    You'll still be able to view the data when connected to the default version and make schema changes directly from the database connection.

    Also note that to access the registered branch versioned dataset, the minimum client version is ArcGIS Pro 2.1. This also means that the dataset will no longer be available for use in ArcMap.

  6. Enable time on your data layers. Once the data is published, you cannot set time filters for layers.

Publishing your data

Once your version has been created and the data edited, you can publish the data.

  1. Publish the data to your organization's portal as a web layer using steps 1 through 9 in Share as web layers with linear referencing above.

    When creating a map in ArcGIS Pro, start with a new map and ensure all data in the map's layers is from a branch geodatabase.

  2. On the Configuration tab, check both Linear Referencing and Version Management under Capabilities.

  3. Click Analyze to check for any errors or issues. You must resolve all errors before you can complete the publishing process.

    Analyzers are used to validate the branch versioned dataset when publishing as a feature service. The following conditions are enforced by these analyzers:

    • ArcGIS Server 10.5 and earlier instances are not supported.
    • If Version Management is enabled under Capabilities, all layers must be of the same registration type.
    • All data must belong to a branch workspace.
    • All data must be published from the default version.
    • The connected geodatabase user must be the owner of the data.
    • Definition queries must not be present.
    • All fields must be visible.
  4. Once validated, click Publish to share your web layer.

Your layers are now published as a feature service with linear referencing and version management capability. ArcGIS Pro users with Portal for ArcGIS credentials can now create child versions of your feature service and start editing. For the next steps, see Edit feature services.
