Support of "Go live!" of the User Management for Planned Tasks

Please follow the steps to synchronize WebOffice usermanagement users from the pre-production stage (staging) to the production stage (production) using automatic tasks in Windows Task Scheduling.

Create a shortcut of ArcMap.exe

Send a shortcut of the ArcMap.exe (by default in C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.3\bin) to any directory.

Add the call parameters for synchronizing the WebOffice usermanagement user

Open the Properties of the shortcut of ArcMap.exe and add the following parameters in the Target field:

dummy - the dummy parameter is needed in the call, the naming does not matter

1 - 1 is the number of the task to be performed (currently only 1 available - 1 means synchronize user management database)

source profile - this is the name of the source profile (staging profile) defined in WebOffice author

target profile - this is the name of the target profile (productive profile) defined in WebOffice author

s - An optional fifth parameter s to enable silent mode (without message boxes)

The silent mode is useful when the Windows task scheduler is used.

 

An example of a target defined in the properties of the shortcut file could look like:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.3\bin\ArcMap.exe dummy 1 WebOffice (Staging) WebOffice (Productiv) s

 

Add parameters to the target of ArcMap.exe

Please make sure, that source and target profile have valid connection to the WebOffice usermanagement.

Please use apostrophes when using parameters with blank, e.g. Source Profile.

Run the synchronize task

To run the synchronize task there are two possibilities:

1) Open the shortcut file of ArcMap.exe

When opening the shortcut file of ArcMap.exe you will get several infos for synchronizing the WebOffice usermanagement user.

2) Define automatic tasks to run the ArcMap.exe periodically

To organize a periodical update of the WebOffice usermanagement users, you can create a task for this in the Windows Task Scheduler where the shortcut file should run automatically at certain times.
