ArcGIS Online Service

With ArcGIS Online Service, ArcGIS Online services can be embedded into the WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project. As subelements of an ArcGIS Online service it is possible to configure

Map Service Properties

ArcGIS Server Output Service



The ArcGIS Server Output Service will be used for output and extended server functionality (print, ePaper, extract server but also raster reprojection and editing). It is mandatory to configure a central ArcGIS Server Output Service in the map elements. This output service can be overwritten for tools/functions through a specific configuration at the according position (i.e., a specific output service in the Printing (Legacy) tool). The output service must always provide an Activated Server Object Extension.


Configure a specific output service for an ArcGIS Online Service whenever you need to reproject the ArcGIS Online Service. I.e. if your WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project uses another projection than Web Mercator (Auxiliary Sphere). This way, other functionality that needs the central output service will remain unaffected.


Whenever a new ArcGIS Online Service is added to the WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project configuration

configure the corresponding Reference to Map Service of Map Collection in the table of content (mandatory)

configure the corresponding reference to map service of map collection in the Map View (optionally)

Specifies URL of the ArcGIS Online Service.

Example for an ArcGIS Online Map Service:

If you are connecting to an ArcGIS Server federated in a Portal for ArcGIS or are connecting to an ArcGIS Online service, be sure to use the service according to Esri Inc. Terms of Use! and


A map service may only be used once in a map collection. I.e., if you configured a service already in the map collection, you cannot configure the same service in tool Add ArcGIS Service.

Service Name (GUI)

Service name of map service displayed in the GUI.

Metadata URL

Configure a reference to a metadata document (must be available via HTTP) as URL.


You may configure the unique Metadata document identifier (UUID) of a Catalog Service (CSW 2.0) here. In this case you must configure the SOAP interface of the Catalog Services in Metadata Display.

Metadata short description

Provide a short description for the metadata (line breaks with \n).


Service specific copyright text to be added to the configured project copyright if the map service contributes to the map.


The service specific copyright will only be displayed if the map element Copyright is configured.


Detailed information about the use of these attributes can be found in chapters Template (File Name) and WebOffice ePaper Template (File Name).

Check content?

Specifies if images will be checked for content availability within the requested scale (Yes) or if no content check will be performed (No). If there is not content available the higher available LOD Level are interpolated and displayed at lower resolution.

Show blank tiles?

Specifies if the placeholder image (depending on the map service e.g. a crossed out photo camera, or Map data not available at this zoom level) shall be displayed if a tile is not available.

If Yes is configured, the placeholder image is displayed, in case of No (default) no tile is displayed.

Service category

Group category for services displayed in the tool ArcGIS Service.

Service user

User login for accessing the ArcGIS Online service (ArcGIS service user).


Password of user accessing ArcGIS Online service

Selection on all visible layers?

When using the option All visible Layers in the Client all Layers visible in the current scale and set to visible are taken into consideration.

A Layer configuration is not required, the ArcMap Layer Properties get used instead (Layer Name, visible Fields, Field order)

Max. extent for layer display

With query layers, the map area cannot be defined manually because it is always calculated automatically. Furthermore, the map area can also change dynamically by capturing additional features afterwards.

By selecting the value Service or Project it can be guaranteed that in WebOffice also newly captured objects are displayed outside the previous display area.

ArcGIS Online service properties



An easy way to configure an ArcGIS Online Service is by using the wizard Add Service.

An ArcGIS Online service can also be preconfigured for the tool Add ArcGIS Service in the list of ArcGIS Services.

The indication of the MapServer Endpoint URL has to be provided. The indication of the FeatureServer Endpoint URL is not necessary because it will be identified automatically. The operation Query has to be allowed on the feature service.

If your application does not have direct access to the internet, be sure to configure your proxy settings in WebOffice 10.9 SP1 application configuration for proper ArcGIS Online functionality. See chapter Proxy-Server for HTTP Requests.
