Copy the SynOutputService files from the WebOffice10.9-DVD to your system

Check the access right on the data

Execute the script

Check the successfully published Service



The script can be found here: WebOffice10.9-DVD\Software\Miscellaneous\Automatization\


Copy the SynOutputService files from the WebOffice10.9-DVD to your system

It contains the SynOutputService.mxd and a folder SynOutputService with eight file geodatabases and another folder:


















Check the access right on the data

Use the markup feature classes in the SynOutputService directly from an eGDB (SDE). For demo and test purposes it is recommended to leave the markup feature classes of the SynOutputService in the fGDB and for productive use, i. e. as soon as there is a load on the server, to always move them into an SDE database.



See more details in Put Markup Feature Classes into SDE.



Make sure that the user that runs ArcGIS Server has full rights for all syn_markup geodatabases. Otherwise there might be problems with displaying selections in WebOffice map widget or measure drawings won't be visible when printing the maps.

Make also sure, that the attribute read-only of the folder SynOutputService (including subfolders) is NOT checked.

Be sure that the user that runs ArcGIS Server has full rights for the file geodatabases! Otherwise, the Upload Local Geodata tool will not be available.

The script works only if ArcGIS Server is accessible via Port 6080!


Follow the instructions of the script. There are some mandatory inputs:

1.Use default path to arcgisserver directory (C:\arcgisserver)? Enter Y/N.
Confirm with y if your arcgisserver directory is located in C:\arcgisserver. In case you enter n', you will need to enter the path manually, e.g. D:\arcgisserver.

2.Enter user name to access service:
Enter an ArcGIS Server user with administrator privileges, e.g. siteadmin

3.Enter password:
Enter the password for the respective ArcGIS Server user with administrator privileges

4.Enter Server name: (e.g.
Enter the full server name, e.g. myserver.domain.intern.

5.Enter the minimum instance:
Enter the minimum number of instances

6.Enter the maximum instance:
Enter the maximum number of instances

7.In the next step, the service will be published and the analyze results will be shown. After successful publishing, service properties will be updated (activating the Server Object Extension, adding of dynamic workspaces), with the minimum/maximum instances to be defined manually.

8.Service edited successfully
The script was successful

Check the successfully published service

Open ArcGIS Manager by entering https://<server name>[:<port>]/arcgis/manager/ (e.g. http://myserver:6080/arcgis/manager) into your browser and log-in with the primary site administrator name and password that was set during the site creation process. Check, whether all properties of the SynOutputService have been configured correctly.


Check specifically the dynamic workspaces and the activated Server Object Extension



If the SynOutputService is published on an ArcGIS Server version 10.9 and the WebOffice Extensions Service is installed on another server, certain configuration steps have to be performed.
