arcgis.raster.utils.generate_direct_access_url(expiration=None, *, gis=None)

Function to get the direct access url for user’s rasterStore on ArcGIS Online.

 Argument Description expiration Optional integer. Direct access URL expiration time in minutes. (The default is 1440 ie. 24 hours) gis Keyword only parameter. Optional GIS. The GIS on which this function runs. If not specified, the active GIS is used.

arcgis.raster.utils.upload_imagery_to_agol_userstore(files, direct_access_url=None, auto_renew=True, upload_properties=None, *, gis=None)

Uploads file/files to the user’s rasterstore on ArcGIS Online and returns the list of urls.

The list of urls can then be used with arcgis.raster.analytics.copy_raster() or arcgis.raster.analytics.create_image_collection() method to create imagery layers on ArcGIS Online.

For this functionality to work, Azure library packages for Python (Azure SDK for Python - azure-storage-blob: 12.1<= version <=12.8) needs to be pre-installed. Refer https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/developer/python/azure-sdk-install

If set to True, function would continue uploading until the entire data is uploaded by auto renewing the direct access url. (The default is True) upload_properties Optional dictionary. upload_properties can be used to control specific upload parameters. Available options: “maxUploadConcurrency”: Optional integer. Maximum number of parallel connections to use for large uploads (when individual file/blob size exceeds 64MB). This is the max_concurrency parameter of the BlobClient.upload_blob() method. (The default is 6) “maxWorkerThreads”: Optional integer. Maximum number of threads to execute asynchronously when uploading multiple files. This is the max_workers parameter of the ThreadPoolExecutor() class. (The default is None) “displayProgress”: Optional boolean. If set to True, a progress bar will be displayed for tracking the progress of the uploads to user’s rasterstore. (The default is False) Example:{“maxUploadConcurrency”:8, “maxWorkerThreads”:20, “displayProgress”:True} gis Keyword only parameter. Optional GIS. The GIS on which this function runs. If not specified, the active GIS is used.
Returns

List of file paths.

# Usage Example: Generates an expirable direct access url and uploads files to the user's raster store.
