The ArcGIS documentation actually has pages titled "What is a feature service" and "What is a map service", the text of which is quoted verbatim here -- Feature Service: Feature services allow you to serve features over the Internet and provide the symbology to use when displaying the features. Clients can execute queries to get features and perform ...

A feature server serves individual layers (aka features) as structured text (xml or json) a mapserver serves maps as images (png - jpeg - gif)

After 2015-Jul-14 The situation is much improved. The organisation admin can create a group with Members can update items permission. This removes the need for shared login credentials and/or giving all editors organisation-wide admin privileges*, while also making group permissions answer** viable for public maps. The new recommended practice is: Disable ...

Log in to www.arcgis.com with administrator credentials. Click My Content, and navigate to the intended feature service. Open the feature service. If the error, "There are no services available" is returned when visiting the ArcGIS REST Administrator Directory, the hosted feature service is shared with 'Everyone' (public). In the item details page of the ...

The URL passed to esri.layers.FeatureLayer needs to be for a specific layer. Your code points to the root of the feature service. To fix this, append the layer index of the layer the URL. For instance, in this feature service, the rivers layer is layer 1. To create a feature layer using this layer, you would use this url: http://sampleserver3.arcgisonline....

I don't think feature services display labels. You need to use a map service instead or create labels yourself with graphics. This was the case with 10.0 I'm not sure if anything changes at 10.1. If you need the capability of feature services just add an additional map service layer just with labels displayed.

There are some best practices listed here: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisserver/10.0/help/arcgis_server_dotnet_help/index.html#/Authoring_feature_services/009300000021000000/

Regarding your question as to whether you can edit a feature layer using the REST API, the answer is yes. See the Apply Edits section of the REST API for documentation on how do this this. However, if it's only the status of the alarms which is changing every 15 minutes, you could make the change purely within the web map (without needing to change the ...

To create a feature layer, you need access to the layer's REST endpoint. This can be on the web, or on your localhost - see The Services Directory and the REST API. See the Feature Layer help page to get started with creating a feature layer using the ArcGIS Server JS API - the URL you use can point to your local machine.

As Vince pointed out in a comment - you could theoretically write code to clip a map/feature service. But that would probably be a lot of custom work. You wouldnt as much be extending the Clip and Ship tool as you'd be writing a custom extraction of JSON from map services. Generally the clip and ship work flow is comprised of 2 services: GP + Map. They both ...

You don't need an ArcGIS Server license in order to work with ArcGIS Online hosted services. You can also create an .sd file having ArcGIS Desktop license only. If your hosted feature service schema is not changing, you probably just want to truncate the feature layer and populate it with the features from your shapefile. securityinfo = {} securityinfo['...

Admin Tools for ArcGIS Online is likely what you're looking for. It's a separate download (which I don't understand why it's not included), I regularly push lists out to see what layers reside under what groups and who owns what. It's proven to be a huge time saver and helps me keep things organized.

Editing ArcGIS Feature Service layers is not possible in any current QGIS version (as of August 2018).

It sounds like you want to be Drawing features to show quantity by category for which the online help is here.

This is what a POST request to applyEdits looks like: In the headers: Content-type:application/x-www-form-urlencoded POST body: adds=%5b%7b%22geometry%22%3a%7b%22spatialReference%22%3a%7b%22wkid%22%3a102067%7d%2c%22paths%22%3a%5b%5b%5b-756462.345679012%2c-1044562.96296296%5d%2c%5b-756096.913580247%2c-1043695.0617284%5d%5d%5d%7d%2c%22attributes%22%3a%7b%...

the best way to get an idea of what you need to do in your javascript app to interact with ArcGIS Server or ArcGIS Online services successfully is to play around with the REST endpoint for a particular operation interactively and snoop the web traffic to see what requests you are sending. in this case, the syntax you need would look something like this ...

Ok, I figured out how to do this. As Stefan suggested, I had to add a couple of parameters to the URL: geometry (value = e.g. 639739.5,7598259.3) geometryType (value = esriGeometryPoint) spatialRel (value = esriSpatialRelWithin) Here is an example call: http://LocalArcGisServer.local.com:6080/arcgis/rest/services/SW/SW2/FeatureServer/2/query?f=...

You can limit editing by user so that users only edit their features:https://doc.arcgis.com/en/arcgis-online/share-maps/manage-hosted-layers.htm For user specific data access controls I have seen a demo where the server dynamically filters the response data based on authenticated user. This was done with custom ArcGIS Server SOE developed by Esri ...

Your layerUrl is similar at: http://services1.arcgis.com/cFi1BRRsYB2fYqCl/arcgis/rest/services/NameService/FeatureServer Just add the token to Url: http://services1.arcgis.com/cFi1BRRsYB2fYqCl/arcgis/rest/services/NameService/FeatureServer?token=gGIYjUwXvaO75l1X7LHsgOo2Yueoh1jTGRvrKm7K9ZBE-0TY-...

I had a Pro snapping related bug that rendered the software unusable for my purposes. The issue is described here: Splitting polyline with ArcGIS Pro snapping environment? I contacted ESRI and they confirmed that there was a problem. I was told that the issue will be adressed in a 1.1 release. I donwloaded the 1.1 beta and it still had the issue but I was ...

In ArcGIS Desktop, you can access them via the Identify window:

My team had this problem too. The issue is that ESRI uses token authentification for secure map services, and QGIS has no way to set up this token authentification. We tried manually generating tokens (see https://enterprise.arcgis.com/en/server/10.3/administer/linux/acquiring-arcgis-tokens.htm) and adding the token key to the end of the map service URL eg. ...

You will probably have better luck doing the query against the layer itself. This worked for me: http://hebid.hessen.de/hlbk/hlbk_grundlagen/MapServer/1/query?where=OBJECTID=5256&returnGeometry=true&f=pjson&outFields=* When using the query from a layer, you must include an outFields argument. Another thing to note, you will not be able to get ...

I don't think you can unless you are the original publisher or administrator of the service. When creating a new service or editing an already published service, there is an option to "allow feature access". That creates a feature service.

I tried this on a whim and it actually worked. ArcGIS MapServer services can apparently also act as ArcGIS FeatureServer services. I just added an ArcGISFeatureServer using the MapServer URL and it started pulling down polygons instead of tiles.

Some quick troubleshooting steps in order: Re-start all the Enterprise components (Portal, Server, Datastore). If the ArcSOC.exe process is still there after stopping these, simply kill it in task manager. If the process/service comes back after restarting Enterprise, then its referenced in the config-store somewhere. Look at $:\arcgisserver\directories\...

I had two separate published resources each with one feature class. I combined both feature classes into one published resource, and now I can edit both from the api.

Use Selection mode for the feature layer. Set your symbol using Layer.setSelectionSymbol(symbol). If you have a complex symbology, set the renderer instead and leave the selection symbol blank. There are two ways to go about the next part. Method one: Use the checkboxes to composite a complex query. For example, if each feature has a unique identifier (...

The solution: the feature layer I was trying to edit participates in a non-versioned network dataset => not editable. In order to edit layers participating in network datasets, the dataset must be versioned.

(edited 5/7/15) Not ideal, but achieves collaborative editing and public viewing/not editing. make editors administrators under the organization make layer non-editable but share publicly administrators can "add as editable layer" for web admin and do disconnected/syncronized editing on Desktop I was not able to recreate the correct permissions using ...
