Map Service Connections

Use this function for simple staging support. Staging systems are test systems which represent an environment used for testing all aspects of the application system before moving it to the production system. It is strongly recommended for every customer to make use of a staging system. Staging systems are the prerequisite for establishing high quality production systems with high availability and minimized failure time.

Using the map service connections dialog you can easily replace connection parameters of map service in your currently opened WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project.

WebOffice author standalone lists all map service connections of your currently opened WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project and displays them in different ways depending on the service connection:

if the service is published to the [root] folder (no sub folder in between), then WebOffice author standalone will display the map service connection up to and including the instance: http://<my server>:[port]/<instance> (e.g. http://w-lap-wintner:6080/arcgis). If configured, the user will be displayed after a comma.

if the service is published to a sub folder, then WebOffice author standalone will display the map service connection up to and including the sub folder: http://<my server>:[port]/<instance>/rest/services/<sub folder> (e.g. http://w-lap-wintner:6080/arcgis/rest/services/SampleProject). If configured, the user will be displayed after the comma.

if an ArcGIS Online service is configured, then WebOffice author standalone will display the map service connection up to and including the instance: http://<server>/<instance> (e.g. http://services.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS).

 

It is possible to select all map service connections you want to change by using the check box in the Selection column. Additionally, the number of services using the same base URL (up to the sub folder) can be seen in the most right column.

Then you can change the map service connection parameters as you need (e.g. if you want to move a WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project configuration from test server to production server you will exchange the parameter Server from test server with those of production server). As seen in the figure below, if several map service connections using different sub folders have been selected the parameter Subfolder shows ~~~~. Any changes will be adopted to all selected map service connections.

 

In case a map service connection provides the base URL for several map services (as shown in the column Numbers above) it is useful to have a look to the box below the changeable parameters in order to identify the map services that will be changed when replacing e.g. the server name.
