Property

Description

Service name (GUI)

Service name of the map service displayed in the GUI.

Metadata short description

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

Copyright

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

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

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

Metadata URL

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

Note: 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.

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.

Note: For this option the use of ArcGIS Server Map Service of version 10.2 or higher is required.

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".

Server

Specifies URL of ArcGIS Server map service (on premise).

Example for an ArcGIS Server Map Service: http://<myserver>/ArcGIS/rest/services/<myService>/MapServer

Example for an ArcGIS Online Map Service: http://tiles.arcgis.com/tiles/Ok7pjj1ssdfsdfEneC7/arcgis/rest/services/DemonstationMap/MapServer

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! https://developers.arcgis.com/terms/ and http://www.esri.com/legal/software-license

Note: A map service may only be used once in a map collection. I.e. you have to configure a single map service as overview map for example.

Service user

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

Password

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 ad 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)
