Add (Named Types)



At ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1, named users in the Enterprise portal must be licensed with the ArcGIS Knowledge user type extension to create, edit, and update Knowledge Graph Server services. At ArcGIS Enterprise 11.0, your account no longer requires the ArcGIS Knowledge user type extension, but you must be signed in to the Enterprise portal to create, edit, and update Knowledge Graph Server services.

The add operation is available for a knowledge graph service data model's named types resource. With this operation, you can define a new entity type or relationship type in the data model.

The user must have sufficient privileges to edit content and editing must be enabled for the knowledge graph service for this operation to be successful. Editing can be enabled for a knowledge graph service in the same manner that you enable it for a hosted feature layer. The knowledge graph service's strict property must not be set to true, which indicates the data model cannot be modified.

When defining a new named type, its name must satisfy all naming restrictions for entity types and relationship types.
