ArcGIS Server Geoprocessing Service

Define the ArcGIS Server Geoprocessing Service that contains the geoprocessing task to be used in WebOffice 10.9 SP1.



This chapter only refers to the configuration of the Geoprocessing tool in WebOffice author standalone. For more information about preconditions, first go through the HowTo chapter Prepare a Geoprocessing Service as well as the ArcGIS Resources - What is a geoprocessing service?.


ArcGIS Server Geoprocessing Service configuration

ArcGIS Server Geoprocessing Service configuration




Service name (GUI)

Service name of print 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

Allows a short description of the metadata. Word wrap can be accomplished with a \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).

Geoprocessing Task id

ID (Name) of Task to be executed.


If you are configuring this service for VertiGIS Printing, the default value that corresponds to the VertiGIS Studio Printing Engine is Export Web Map Task.


If your geoprocessing service contains more than one geoprocessing task you need to configure one Geoprocessing tool for each task.

Maximum wait time for results with asynchronous execution (in seconds)

Specifies how long the WebOffice 10.9 SP1 client waits for results of the asynchronous executed task. If the task was executed successfully during this time, the result will be processed immediately if possible.

If the maximum time has elapsed, the client will be available again. With setting the value to 0 the client will not wait for any results.


Therefore, if you are using asynchronous GP services, make sure to configure a sufficient maximum wait time in order to display any geoprocessing results.


Specifies URL of an ArcGIS Server Geoprocessing service.

http://<myserver>/ArcGIS/rest/services/<my Service>/GPServer

Service user

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


The Windows domain can be specified with the following parameter domain\user. If no domain is specified the local authentication of the user will be used.


Password of user accessing ArcGIS Server service.

Identify/Select on all visible Feature 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).

Server normalized

Normalized server URL (not configurable)

Optionally you can also configure default parameters

Geoprocessing Input Parameter



See chapter Geoprocessing for details about the tool configuration in WebOffice author standalone.

See chapter Geoprocessing Input Parameter for details about the configuration of geoprocessing input parameters in WebOffice author standalone.

With WebOffice 10.9 SP1 it is possible to pass parameters dynamically to the geoprocessing tool. See HowTo chapter Integrate Geoprocessing for details.
