In addition to publishing new locators, you can use ArcGIS Pro to overwrite existing locators in your ArcGIS Enterprise organization to reflect changes in the reference data or locator properties (such as minimum candidate score or output fields) or edit the item description. Overwriting an existing locator is similar to sharing a locator to your portal. However, you cannot change the name or location of the locator in the portal or on the hosting server.
Overwrite a locator hosted as a service
You can overwrite an existing locator hosted in your organization if you are signed in to your ArcGIS Enterprise portal with the account that owns the locator item being overwritten. You cannot overwrite an existing locator owned by someone else in your organization. You can also modify the item description, who the locator is shared with, and configuration settings. Follow the steps below to overwrite a locator.
- On the
Share tab of the ribbon, in the Share As group, click the Locator drop-down arrow and click Overwrite Locator .
The Select the Locator to Overwrite dialog box appears.
- On the Select the Locator to Overwrite dialog box, browse to the location of the existing locator in your ArcGIS Enterprise portal to overwrite and select it. Click OK.
The Select the Locator to Share dialog box appears.
- On the Select the Locator to Share dialog box, browse to the location of the existing locator to use to overwrite the locator in the portal and select it. Click OK.
- Read the Overwrite Locator message and click Yes to continue.
The Overwrite Locator pane appears. On the General tab, under Item Details, the name of the hosted locator is displayed. The name cannot be changed.
- Under the locator name, accept the default option to Use the item description from the locator item or choose the option to Use the item description from the locator.
The default option preserves the item description of the current hosted locator. The other option overwrites it.
- Optionally modify the information in the Summary and Tags options. If the text boxes are empty, you must fill them in.
The text boxes may be empty if you chose to use the item description from the locator in the previous step.
- Optionally, under Share with, you can modify which people in your organization you want to share the locator with.
- Optionally click the Configuration tab and change settings.
