I want to create a Feature Access Service using an Oracle View as DataSource.

In ArcMAP I can add the layer without problems, but when I try to publish the service, I get a "00134: Layer's data source is not supported" error.

Any ideas why?

I am using ArcGIS Desktop and Server, both version 10.3, and Oracle 12c

According to ESRI's Server Functionality Matrix, web-based editing isn't capable with a basic licence. A Feature Access service offers editing capability.


enter image description here

  • I don't need editing capabilities, I should be able to select only the "query" part of the Feature Access

  • You should deselect Feature Access from the capabilities tab in Service Editor. A basic service published in ArcMap will include Query functionality. These instructions outline the different capabilities available in a Map Service: setting-map-service-properties

As mentioned by others, Feature Access is used for editing. Your data source is a view, not a table. Views behave similarly to tables in terms of querying, but they don't usually store data on their own and thus are not editable.
