Federate Data Item


This operation creates a data store item in the portal for a data store that has been registered with one of the portal's federated ArcGIS Server sites.

Request parameters


The item path for the database, cloud, or file share data store for which you want to create a data store item. The item path is located in data > items > [enterpriseDatabases/fileShares/cloudStores] > Child Items in the Data Item Properties section.



The response format. The default format is html.

Value: html | json | pjson

Example usage

Below is a sample POST request for federateDataItem:

POST /webadaptor/admin/data/federateDataItem HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Content-Length: []



If successful, federateDataItem will return the following success message:

{"status": "success"}

Once the operation is complete, a data store item is created in the portal with which the ArcGIS Server site is federated. If the data store is registered with only this federated server, no further steps are required. However, if the data store is registered with multiple federated servers and you want any of those servers to access the data store item, you need to bind the data store item with an additional federated server or servers using the Add to Server operation.
