Edit Tables (ArcGIS Feature Service)

The procedure for editing tables published within a feature service in ArcGIS Enterprise differs from that for editing layers. Basically, the following editing actions for editing table entries are available to the end user in %CORE%> Client:

 

Create

Edit

Delete

 

Note: Tables that are linked to another layer in ArcMap (Relate) cannot be edited.

 

Note: Editing features of a layer joined to another table in ArcMap is supported. Note, however, that the fields of the join table cannot be used as editing fields. Often, however, the fields in a joint-table also determine the symbology of a layer (e. g. when controlling measures or evaluations) - in order to make these changes visible on the map, the following workaround would be offered (for further questions, please contact the WebOffice Support Team:

 

1.Execute a search on the relevant table and change an object from the search result (click on the entry to be edited and choose the corresponding editing action from the context menu)

2.Adjust the corresponding attributes based on the required changes and complete the editing process.

3.In the search results view, you must configure a linkage of external applications that contains a link to the relevant layer (for example, as a query - this is only relevant if the affected layer is not already visible in the map screen)

 

Note: Please note that editing tables is not integrated in the WebOffice usermanagement. Accordingly, the corresponding audit fields ( CREATE_BY, CHANGE_BY, CREATE_DAT and CHANGE_DAT) are not filled in the course of an editing action.

 

Creating a new table entry

A new table entry can be created in two ways:

 

(1) Within the WebOffice core client, the edit tool can be opened as usual via the ribbon provided for this purpose. The editable table is available in the drop-down menu of the editing topics and is indicated as such by a corresponding table symbol:

 

Edit Layer - Table (ArcGIS Feature Service)

Edit Layer - Table (ArcGIS Feature Service)

 

 

In the list of available edit actions, only the Create edit action is available. The edit actions Edit and Delete are not available via this edit tool form and can only be used via an active search result.

 

Note: If only the actions Edit and Delete have been configured for a table, the end users will be informed by means of a corresponding notification after opening the Edit tool that these editing actions must be executed from an active search result:

 

Special case if the edit action "Create" has not been configured

Special case if the edit action "Create" has not been configured

 

 

After the table of the Feature Service has been selected as the editing theme and the Create edit action has also been configured, the corresponding window for specifying the attribute information appears in the right-hand area of the WebOffice core Client:

 

Edit action "Create"

Edit action "Create"

 

 

The desired attributes can now be defined and the editing process can be completed by clicking on the Apply button.

 

(2) The Create edit action can be opened from an active search result too - therefor it is necessary to configure a corresponding search on a table (ArcGIS Feature Service). Next you have to perform a search on the respective table which is based on a ArcGIS Feature Service. If the Create edit action has been configured correctly, there will be an appropriate button available in the status bar of the search result to create a new table entry:

 

Edit action "Create" which is open via an opened search result

Edit action "Create" which is open via an opened search result

 

 

After clicking on this button, the previously shown window of the edit attributes opens. The desired attributes can now be defined and the editing process can be completed by clicking on the Apply button.

 

Note: To ensure that the newly created table entries are also visible during subsequent searches of the same session, make sure that the Search values in cache? parameter has been configured with Yes directly on the table search (ArcGIS Feature Service). For more information about this parameter, see Query.

 

 

Change (edit) an existing table entry

To be able to edit an existing table entry, a corresponding search must already be configured for a Tabelle (ArcGIS Feature Service). This editing action is not available as usual in the tool form of the Edit tool, but must be opened from an active search result.

 

Therefore, perform a search on a table that references a feature service and right-click a table entry. The context menu that now appears contains the editing actions available for the table (change object and/or delete object):

 

Edit action "Edit" which is open via an opened search result

Edit action "Edit" which is open via an opened search result

 

 

After the Change object function has been selected, the corresponding window for editing the attribute information of this table entry appears in the right area of the WebOffice core Client:

 

Edit action "Edit"

Edit action "Edit"

 

The desired attributes can now be edited and the editing process can be completed by clicking the Apply button.

 

Note: Editing tables (ArcGIS Feature Service) does not support mass attribute assignment. With WebOffice 10.9 SP1 only single table entries can be edited.

Note: Once the attributes of the selected table entry have been edited, the changes are also updated in the respective search result. However, existing selections and sorts are not retained in the search result.

 

 

 

Delete (delete) an existing table entry

To be able to delete an existing table entry, a corresponding search must already be configured for a table (ArcGIS Feature Service). This editing action is not available as usual in the tool form of the Edit tool, but must be opened from an active search result.

 

Therefore, perform a search on a table that references a feature service and right-click a table entry. The context menu that now appears contains the editing actions available for the table (change object and/or delete object):

 

Edit action "Delete" which is open via an opened search result

Edit action "Delete" which is open via an opened search result

 

 

After the Delete Object function has been selected, the corresponding window appears in the right area of the WebOffice core Client:

 

Edit action "Delete"

Edit action "Delete"

 

 

The corresponding table entry can be deleted by clicking the Apply button.

 

Note: Once the selected table entry have been deleted, the changes are also updated in the respective search result. However, existing selections and sorts are not retained in the search result.
