I am using 'queryTask.execute' to get features from a layer. And have change the geometry-paths of the features(polyline), trying to save the changes using 'applyEdits'. This is throwing error 'esri.geometry.normalizeCentralMeridian: 'geometryService' argument is missing'. Updating any attribute is working while path edit is not working.

queryTask.execute(query, function(data){
    if(data.features && data.features.length){
            for(let i in data.features){
                connectedBoxIds = data.features[i].attributes.connectedBoxId.split(',');
                pathIndex = Number(connectedBoxIds.indexOf(componentId)) + 1;
                data.features[i].geometry.paths[0][pathIndex] = newVertex;
            var resultLayer = wireLayer.applyEdits(null, data.features, null);
            resultLayer.then(_ => {
            }).otherwise(err => console.warn('error', err));

    queryTask.on('error', lang.hitch(this, 'queryTaskErrorHandler'));

the error is asking you to specify a valid geometry service in your application in order to manipulate/correct the polyline prior to saving the edit.

Geometry services ship out of the box with ArcGIS Server, but you're also welcome to point at a utility instance associated with ArcGIS Online if you prefer.

esriConfig.geometryService = "http://utility.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/Geometry/GeometryServer";

  • I am using 'npmjs.com/package/generator-arcgis-js-app' to set up a dojo argis project. And I am able to edit any feature loaded by default. Hope I must be there in config Sep 14 '16 at 10:09
  • you shouldn't expect it to be exposed via a config. you'll need to write the code yourself. i'd suggest placing it in 'src/app/components/map/MapView.js' Sep 15 '16 at 18:23
  • Thanks for all your answers, John. But for my issue 'selectFeatures(query, selectionMethod?, callback?, errback?)' is working fine instead of 'queryTask'. This returns graphics as we loop through the graphics of a layer. Sep 16 '16 at 8:47
