ArcGIS Server Output Service

The ArcGIS Server Output Service represents the central output service which is used for various WebOffice 10.9 SP1 operations such as printing (Legacy), ePaper reports, extract server, reprojection, etc. The central output service can be replaced by other specific output services that can be configured for e.g. the Printing Legacy Tool or map services that use different projections.



The output service needs the WebOffice Server Object Extension to be activated. Find details regarding the activation of the Server Object Extension in chapter Activate SOE on a Map Service.


ArcGIS Server Output Service configuration

ArcGIS Server Output Service configuration





Specifies URL of the ArcGIS Server Output Service.



In general, the output service will be configured already during creating the WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project with the Create Project wizard. Find more details in chapter New Project.

In case you are using map services with a ArcGIS Web Adaptor, it is recommended to configure the ArcGIS Server Output Service also via ArcGIS Web Adaptor (e.g. http://<server>/<webadaptor name>/rest/services/SynOutputService/MapServer) to guarantee high quality prints.

Service name (GUI)

Metadata URL

Allows you to store a reference to a metadata document (htm, html, pdf, jpg, etc.) in the form of an URL. The metadata document must be accessible via HTTP.


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.

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