Go to the Services tab and select the SynOutputService.

First go to Capabilities (1) and select Mapping (always enabled) (2). Check whether the box Allow per request modification of layer order and symbology under Dynamic Workspaces are activated and the five Workspace IDs (4 x type FileGDB, 1 x type Raster) are listed(3).

 

Note: See chapter Add Dynamic Workspaces to SynOutputService for details on how to add dynamic workspaces.

Now check the Server Object Extension (1). Additionally, under Configuration you can control the path of the config file syn_soe_ao_gateway.json that was deployed in the previous chapter Deploy WebOffice Files on ArcGIS Server. Adjust the standard path is C:\arcgisserver\directories\WebOfficeSystem\syn_soe_ao_gateway.json (2) if necessary. In the end (after Save and Restart) you can control if everything worked fine by clicking the REST URL of the Server Object Extension (3).

The parameter active handlers must have the value '(2)' which points out that the activation was successful. Otherwise, if the value '(1)' is displayed next to binder, something went wrong. In this case make sure that all steps were accomplished completely and in the correct order.

 

Note: The checkboxes concerning 'Operations Allowed' are currently without any function and can be left unchecked.

Activate WebOffice extract server extension

 

In order to activate the WebOffice extract server extension navigate to extract server tab and configure your database parameters. Also adjust the paths if your WebOfficeExport directory is not located in C:\arcgisserver\directories\. Consider that you need to have a virtual directory pointing to your physical export directory. Enter the name of this directory into Export (virtual) and exchange <localhost> with your server name. Finally, click the button Save and Restart and wait until the service has stopped and started again.

Note: 

In order to have WebOffice extract server available in WebOffice 10.8 SP2, you also need a WebOffice extract server license as well as a configured WebOffice export configuration in your WebOffice 10.8 SP2 project configuration. See chapter WebOffice extract server for details.

Property

Description

Driver

Define which database should be used. You can choose from:

MSAccess

Oracle

MSSQL

PostrgreSQL

SQLite

DB-Host/File

For Oracle, MSSQL and PostgreSQL the Host Name of the database server must be specified.

For SQLite files and MSAccess, the path to the User Management database will be specified. The path must be accessible from the server.

Database

Name of the database.

Note: For SQLite Files this field remains empty.

User

Specify the user who has sufficient rights to access the database.

Note: For SQLite Files this field remains empty.

Password

User Password

Note: For SQLite Files this field remains empty.

Configuration

Defines the path in which the Export Configuration and the Connection Files are filed.

Note: The preconfigured standard path is C:\arcgisserver\directories\Configuration.

Export (physical)

Defines the working directory in which the export results will be filed.

Files in this directory are deleted by WebOffice extract server after the expiry of the minimum period. As long as there is no Data Fetch Path defined, the Export File Path must be enabled for access from the internet.

Note: The preconfigured standard path is C:\arcgisserver\directories\Export.

Export (virtual)

Defines the URL to Export File Path (or to Data Fetch Path). The export result can be downloaded via this URL.

Note: The directory has to be defined as virtual directory on the IIS.

Note: The preconfigured standard path is http://<localhost>/WebOfficeExport.

Note: By default, the virtual export path must point to the physical export directory. But when configuring a Data-Fetch path, make sure that the virtual export path is pointing to the Data-Fetch directory.

Archive (opt.)

Defines an Archive Path. The results from the Export File Path will be copied in this path. The files from this directory will not be deleted by WebOffice export.

Note: The preconfigured standard path is C:\arcgisserver\directories\Archive.

Data-Fetch (opt.)

Defines an alternative path, in which the export results are provided for download. If this path is defined, the results will be moved into this directory after export from Export File Path. The files in this directory are deleted by WebOffice export after the expiry of the minimum period.

Note: The Data-Fetch path may be used in distributed scenarios where WebOffice extensions run on one server and WebOffice 10.8 SP2 runs on a second server.

Note: The Data-Fetch path must always be a physical path, e.g. C:\inetpub\wwwroot\WebOfficeExport.

Note: When configuring a Data-Fetch path, make sure that the virtual export path is pointing to the data-fetch directory.

Cleanup Interval (min.)

Defines the minimum period in minutes, for which an export result is available for download.

Max. Area (SR units)

The maximum extent which can be exported.

The unit is determined within the spatial reference (SR) of the Feature Classes.

Note: The maximum value which can be defined is 9.223.372.036.854.775.807. 

Extended Log

By using this setting, a XML file and a text file, which include information concerning the transferred layers, are created in the arcgisoutput folder during each export process.

Single Sign On

Activate the checkbox if you are using WebOffice extract server together with Authentication Type SSO or together with an LDAP authentication using only role information.
