Apply Edits (Feature Service)

  • URL:https://<featureservice-url>/applyEdits(POST only)
  • Required Capability:Create, Update, Delete. Create required to add features, Update required to update features, and Delete required to delete features.
  • Version Introduced:10.1

Description

The applyEdits operation applies edits to features associated with multiple layers or tables in a single call (POST only). This operation is performed on a feature service resource. The result of this operation is an array of edit results for each layer/table edited. Each edit result identifies a single feature on a layer or table and indicates whether the edits were successful or not. If an edit is not successful, the edit result also includes an error code and an error description.

Starting at version 10.6, services can be published form enterprise geodatabase layers that have attribute rules. Attribute rules are applied to the back end datasets and fire when edits are applied. Types of attribute rules include calculation rules which automatically apply a calculated value to a field as well as constraint rules which will cause an edit to return an error if the constraint is violated. See the constraint rule violate JSON response examples below.

Starting at 10.6.1, functionality has been added to support splitting features. The split operation can be combined with adds, updates, and deletes if needed. See the JSON example below for the split syntax and a response example.

Note:

Hosted feature services support adding or updating BLOB column values in Base64.

Note:

Any geometry edits made to the service are validated with OGC standards.

You can provide arguments to the applyEdits operation as defined in the following parameters table:

Starting at 10.8, the returnServiceEditsInSourceSR parameter can be used when the returnServiceEditsOption is set to originalAndCurrentFeatures and the layer property supportsReturnServiceEditsInSourceSR in advanceEditingCapabilities (layer property) is set to true.

Request parameters

ParameterDetails
edits

(Required)

A JSON array of layers and edits to be applied. Edits cannot be from a mix of nonversioned and traditional versioned layers or a mix of nonversioned and branch versioned layers. Edits to nonversioned layers must be applied separately from edits to traditional versioned or branch versioned layers. Features to be added or updated to a feature layer should include the geometry. Records to be added or updated to a table should not include the geometry. To learn more about how to format the edit JSON array, see Using globalIds and split in edits.

Example

[
  {
    "id" : 0,
    "adds" : [
      {
        "geometry" : {
    		    "x": -143.501,

    ] 
  } 
]
gdbVersion

(Optional)

//This option was added at 10.1

The geodatabase version to apply the edits. This parameter applies only if the isDataVersioned property of the layer is true.

Can be either a traditional version or a branch version.

If the gdbVersion parameter is not specified, edits are made to the published map’s version.

Syntax: gdbVersion=<version>

Example: gdbVersion=SDE.DEFAULT

honorSequenceOfEdits

(Optional)

This option was added at 10.5 and works with ArcGIS Server services only.

Description: Optional parameter specifying whether to apply edits in the order they are submitted in the JSON. If honorSequenceOfEdits = true, edits will apply in the submitted order. If honorSequenceOfEdits = false, which is the default, edits will apply in ascending layer-ID order. All the edits for the layer with the lowest ID will apply first.

Values: true | false

returnEditMoment

(Optional)

This option was added at 10.5 and works with ArcGIS Server services only. Specifies whether the response will report the time edits were applied. If set to true, the server will return the time edits were applied in the response's editMoment key.

Values: true | false

Example

returnEditMoment=true
rollbackOnFailure

(Optional)

//This option was added at 10.1

Specifies whether the edits should be applied only if all submitted edits succeed. If false, the server will apply the edits that succeed even if some of the submitted edits fail. If true, the server will apply the edits only if all edits succeed. The default value is true.

Not all data supports setting this parameter. Query the supportsRollbackonFailureParameter property of the layer to determine whether a layer supports setting this parameter. If supportsRollbackOnFailureParameter = false for a layer, then when editing this layer, rollbackOnFailure will always be true, regardless of how the parameter is set. However, if supportsRollbackonFailureParameter = true, the rollbackOnFailure parameter value will be honored on edit operations.

Note:

supportsRollbackOnFailureParameter will always be true if the data published is nonversioned, or nonversioned with archiving enabled and does not have composite relationships or attachments.

Values: true|false

Example: rollbackOnFailure=true

useGlobalIds

(Optional)

This option was added at 10.4. When set to true, additions, updates, or deletions for all layers in the edit parameter are identified by their globalId. The service adds the new features and attachments while preserving the globalIds submitted in the payload. If the globalId of a feature or attachment collides with pre-existing features or attachments, that addition fails. Other additions, updates, or deletions are attempted if rollbackOnFailure is set to false. If rollbackOnFailure is true, the whole operation will fail when any failure occurs, including a globalId collision. The default value is false.

Note:

This requires the service's supportsApplyEditsWithGlobalIds property be set to true.

Values: true | false

Example

useGlobalIds=true
trueCurveClient

(Optional)

This option was added at 10.5. Indicates to the server whether the client is true curve capable. When set to true, this indicates to the server that true curve geometries should be downloaded and that geometries containing true curves should be consumed by the feature service without converting those curves to densified polylines or polygons. When set to false, this indicates to the server that the client is not true curves capable and that curves should be converted to densified polylines or polygons. The default value is false.

Values: true | false

Example

trueCurveClient=true
sessionID

(Optional)

This option was added at 10.6. This is set by a client during long transaction editing on a branch version. The sessionID is a GUID value that clients establish at the beginning and use throughout the edit session. The sessionID ensures isolation during the edit session.

Example

sessionID={E81C2E2D-C6A7-40CB-BF61-FB499E53DD1D}
usePreviousEditMoment

(Optional)

This option was added at 10.6. This is set by a client during long transaction editing on a branch version. This parameter is used to apply the edits with the same edit moment as the previous set of edits. This allows an editor to apply a single block of edits partially, complete another task, and then complete the block of edits. When set to true, the edits are applied with the same edit moment as the previous sets of edits. When set to false the edits are applied with a new edit moment. By default, this parameter is set to false.

Values: true | false

Example

usePreviousEditMoment=true
returnServiceEditsOption

(Optional)

This option was added at 10.6. This parameter returns features edited due to the geodatabase behavior that results from applying the edits. For example, if a feature is deleted and it is the origin in a composite relationship, the destination feature is automatically deleted in the geodatabase. If set to originalAndCurrentFeatures, the deleted destination feature is returned along with a reference to the deleted origin feature in the response. Note that even for deletions, the geometry and attributes of the edited feature are returned. The originalAndCurrentFeatures option is only valid when rollBackOnFailure is true. The default response is none, which will not include editedFeatures.

Values: none | originalAndCurrentFeatures

Example

returnServiceEditsOption=originalAndCurrentFeatures
datumTransformation

(Optional)

Introduced at 10.8. This parameter applies a datum transformation while projecting geometries in the results when outSR is different than the layer's spatial reference. When specifying transformations, you need to think about which datum transformation best projects the layer (not the feature service) to the outSR and sourceSpatialReference property in the layer resource report. For a list of valid datum transformation ID values ad well-known text strings, see Coordinate systems and transformations (values applicable for ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Enterprise, ArcGIS Pro, and ArcGIS Runtime). For more information on datum transformations, please see the transformation parameter in the Project operation.

Note:

The datumTransformation parameter may be used if the supportsDatumTransformation feature service property is set to true.

Syntax

//Syntax to apply a simple transformation
datumTransformation=<wkid>

//Syntax to apply a simple transformation
datumTransformation={"wkt": "<WKT>"}

//Syntax to apply a composite transformation
datumTransformation={"geoTransforms":[{"wkid":<id>,"forward":<true|false>},{"wkt":"<WKT>","forward":<true|false>}]}

Example

//Applies a simple transformation
datumTransformation=1623

//Applies a composite transformation
datumTransformation={
  "geoTransforms":[
    {
      "wkid":1088,
      "transformForward": true

        PARAMETER[\"Scale_Difference\",3.56]]",
      "transformForward":false
    }
  ]
}
returnServiceEditsInSourceSR

This parameter can be used when the returnServiceEditsOption is set to originalAndCurrentFeatures and the layer property, supportsReturnServiceEditsInSourceSR (in advancedEditingCapabilities) is set to true.

When this parameter is set to true, edits returned by the return service edits option will be in the source spatial reference of the layer they belong to. See the layer's metadata for it's sourceSpatialReference property. Returning service edits in the source spatial reference potentially prevents clients from having to project client side.

Values: true | false

Example

returnServiceEditsInSourceSR=true
f

The response format. The default response format is html.

Values: html | json

Using globalIds and splits in edits

If useGlobalIds is true, the features are added while preserving their globalIds. For new features and attachments, the client must generate a globalId. In order for a feature or attachment to be updated or deleted, clients must include its globalId. If useGlobalIds is false (default), globalIds submitted with the features are ignored and new globalIds are assigned when features are added. In order for a feature to be updated or deleted, the attributes property of the feature must include the object ID of the feature along with the other attributes. Attachments are not supported as an edit payload when useGlobalIds is false.

Syntax when useGlobalIds is true

    "id": <layerId1>,
    "adds": [<feature1>, <feature2>],
    "updates": [<feature1>, <feature2>],

When using split, the request should contain the id of the layer that contains the feature you want to split, the objectID of the feature to be split, and the geometry used to split the feature. The split operation supports splitting polylines by points and polygons by polylines. To use split, supportsRollbackOnFailureParameter set as true must be present on the layer and rollbackOnFailure needs to be true when the edit is performed.

editedFeatures object

Results returned from applyEdits are organized in a layer by layer fashion. If returnServiceEditsOption is set to originalAndCurrentFeatures, each layer may have edited features returned in an editedFeatures object.

The editedFeatures object returns full features including the original features prior to delete, the original and current features for updates and the current rows for inserts which may contain implicit changes (e.g. as a result of a calculation rule).

editedFeatures response structure

"editedFeatures":{
	"adds":  [ <feature1>, <feature2>], 	// current features
	"updates": [[<originalFeature3>, < currentFeature3>], [<originalFeature4>, < currentFeature4>]],
	"deletes": [ <feature5>, <feature6>]	// original features
},

The response includes no editedFeatures and exceededTransferLimit is set to true if the count of edited features to return is more than the maxRecordCount. If clients are using this parameter to maintain a cache, they should invalidate the cache when exceedTransferLimit is returned as true. If the server encounters an error when generating the list of edits is the response, exceedTransferLimit is returned as true.

Edited features are returned in the spatial reference of the feature service as defined by the services spatialReferenceobject or by the spatialReference of the layers extent object.

Example usage

Example one: Apply edits on a feature service resource

Example two: Add a feature and attachment with globalIds

Example three: Add features and a relationship with globalIds

Example three

This example demonstrates adding features and a relationship between them in one call with useGlobalIds set to true:

Let us assume the service has a Parcel layer (id: 0) and Owner table (id: 1). Parcel is the Origin Class and Owner is the Distribution Class. The Parcel's globalId is related to Owner's ParcelGuid field, which makes ParcelGuid a foreign key field. An editors want to add a parcel and an owner and have them related in one applyEdits call:
