Enum Class FeatureServiceSessionType

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<FeatureServiceSessionType>, Constable

public enum FeatureServiceSessionType extends Enum<FeatureServiceSessionType>
An enumeration of the session types that control how multiple users access branch versioned data.

Session types — transient and persistent — let you control how multiple viewers and editors access branch versioned feature services. By default, a web map or web scene with branch versioned feature services (a ServiceGeodatabase version) loads as a TRANSIENT type; you can change this type to PERSISTENT at the map or scene level when you load the map or scene.

When you switch the ServiceGeodatabase version being used via ServiceGeodatabase.switchVersionAsync(String), a read operation is started on the new version before releasing the previous version. If acquiring a shared lock on the new version fails (for example, if another user is editing the version), an error is raised. This behavior allows you to keep the user connected to the original version when the version they want is not yet available.

For descriptions of additional ways to manage multiple viewers and editors in branch versioned data, such as using multiple tiers of editors, see the ArcGIS Pro discussion on branch version scenarios.

  • Enum Constant Details


      public static final FeatureServiceSessionType TRANSIENT
      A momentary session is used during queries and edit operations.

      This type of session will avoid holding a lock any longer than necessary, allowing other clients to connect to, query, and edit a version being used by the ServiceGeodatabase. Use this type of session when concurrency is more important than data consistency between queries or between concurrent users.

      This is the default value.


      public static final FeatureServiceSessionType PERSISTENT
      A session is held open as long as tables are actively reading or writing.

      This type of session will hold a lock on the version the ServiceGeodatabase is working with, ensuring data consistency but decreasing concurrency. This will create a persistent lock for both read and edit sessions.

      During read sessions, a shared lock will be held while tables are connected to the feature service, preventing other clients from editing the version.

      During edit sessions, an exclusive lock will be held while edits have been made to the locally cached data, preventing other clients from both reading and editing. When all edits are successfully applied to the service, the exclusive lock is released.
