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 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.


Hover over the message and click Options to get a quick suggestion on how to address the specific issue, alternatively you can right-click to see the same suggestion. 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, double clicking the analyzer initiates the default solution.
