From WebOffice 10.8 SP1 on, the setup of VertiGIS Printing can be done with an installer. See chapter Installation with Setup.

icon_comment

Starting with WebOffice 10.8 SP1, the setup of the VertiGIS Printing can be done with an installer. See chapter Installer Setup.

To use the VertiGIS Printing, at least ArcGIS 10.8.1 is required. However, VertiGIS strongly recommends Esri product versions ArcGIS Desktop (ArcMap) 10.8.2 and ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1, as these are Long Term Releases from Esri Inc. Furthermore, it is recommended to  use ArcGIS Pro  2.9.x.

Due to known technical limitations, an error-free installation as well as use of VertiGIS Printing on ArcGIS 10.8.1 and older versions can no longer be guaranteed.

Directly on the GIS server (where VertiGIS Printing is published) no ArcGIS Pro installation is mandatory. The administration of layouts and publishing of Web Tools can be done from an administration computer.

icon_warning

WARNING!

In case of problems with the installation it is recommended to run the setup file as administrator via Windows command prompt (CMD.exe). This local admin user must have write permissions to the .\arcgisserver\directories\VertiGIS_PrintLayouts directory.

If the post-installer and the associated publishing process is run under a user (e.g. administrator) who has never opened the ArcGIS Pro application on the machine with a correct licensing, the post-installer will abort with an error message (The Product License has not been initialized). In this case, the Windows user running the post-installer must have opened ArcGIS Pro at least once to ensure that the ArcGIS Pro license is correctly assigned.

When using the VertiGIS Printing with ArcGIS 10.8.1 the installation of Patch ArcGIS Server 10.8.1 Print Service Patch and ArcGIS Server 10.8.1 Print Service and Text Element Patch is necessary!

 

To set up and use VertiGIS Printing GP service on a server manually (as an alternative to Installation with Setup), the following steps are necessary:

 

Navigate to WebOffice10.9-DVD\Software\WebOffice directories\VertiGIS_PrintLayouts and copy the Print Layouts to your server to:
 
..\arcgisserver\directories\VertiGIS_PrintLayouts
 
wox_install1
 
wox_install2

 

 

Create on your ArcGIS Server or Portal for ArcGIS a sub folder named: „VertiGIS_Utilities“

 

Register the Layout folder - VertiGIS Print Layouts on your ArcGIS Enterprise. This can be done in ArcGIS Pro or alternatively in ArcGIS Server Manager.

 

icon_comment

If you do not register the VertiGIS Print Layouts folder, ArcGIS Pro may not publish correctly.

Navigate to WebOffice10.9-DVD\Software\VertiGIS Utilities\VertiGIS Printing\VertiGIS Printing Toolbox\VertiGISPrintingToolbox.zip and copy the content to your server to: ..\arcgisserver\directories\WebOfficeGeoprocessing\VertiGIS_Utilities. Unzip the file locally and copy the Folder VertiGISPrintingToolbox to ..\arcgisserver\directories\WebOfficeGeoprocessing\VertiGIS_Utilities.

 

Open your ArcGIS Pro installation.

 

Add the following Toolbox using add Toolbox: ..\arcgisserver\directories\VertiGIS_Utilities\VertiGISPrintingToolbox\VertiGISPrintingTools.pyt
 
wox_install6

 

This closed Python Toolbox with the file extension .pyt contains the following tasks:

Get Index Info Task

Get Layout Templates Info Task

Get Product Info Task

VertiGIS Print Task

VertiGIS Pro Print Task

 

All tasks must be executed first in ArcGIS Pro.

 

To do this, execute all tasks in ArcGIS Pro (via double-click - please follow the above sequence).

 

For the VertiGIS Print Task please note the following settings:

oFor the Web Map as JSON attribute, enter two brackets -> {}

ofor the attribute Output File, any path/file name can be temporarily selected.

ofor the attribute Format select PDF'

oReference the VertiGIS_PrintLayouts Folder (default path: ..\arcgisserver\directories\VertiGIS_PrintLayouts)

oFor Layout Template, select any existing template instead of MAP_ONLY.

Execute the Geoprocessing Task by clicking Run.
 
wox_install7

 

With the Get Layout Templates Info Task you reference the VertiGIS_PrintLayouts again:
 
wox_install8

 

In the Get Product Info Task, reference the  VertiGIS_PrintLayouts again and run the task by clicking Run:
 
wox_install8_2

 

For the Get Index Info Task, at Request JSON enter {} again and reference to the VertiGIS_PrintLayouts. Execute the task by clicking Run.
 
wox_install8b

 

The VertiGIS Pro Print Task is optional. Please note the following settings:

oFor the Web Map as JSON attribute, enter two brackets -> {}

oFor Layout Template, select any existing template instead of MAP_ONLY.

Execute the Task by clicking Run.

 

wox_install8_5

 

In the GeoProcessing history, check the successful execution of the scripts:
 
wox_install9b

 

If these scripts (tasks) have been run successfully in ArcGIS Pro, the results must be published on your ArcGIS Enterprise:

 

a) Publish against an ArcGIS Enterprise Portal

b) Publishing against an ArcGIS Server Standalone
