Update Measures From LRS

  • URL:https://<network-layer-url>/updateMeasuresFromLRS
  • Required Capability:Network Editing
  • Version Introduced:10.8



The ArcGIS Location Referencing license is required to use this resource.

This operation populates and updates the measures on ArcGIS Utility Network Management extension features such as pipes, devices, and junctions, or features in other non-Utility Network or LRS feature classes. It will find an appropriate route from a specified LRS Network, get the measures from the route, then populate and update the measure attributes for the features on the non-LRS feature class.

Request parameters


Optional parameter to specify the response format. The default response format is html.

Values: html | json


Description: The epoch date used to define the temporal view of the network for collecting the route and measure values.

Syntax: lrsDate=<epoch date>

Example: lrsDate=1539043200000


Description: The layer ID value for the feature service layer that includes the route ID and measure fields to update based on the feature geometry relative to routes in the specified LRS Network.

Syntax: inputLayerId=<layer id>

Example: inputLayerId=3


Description: Optional parameter to specify a list of object IDs or a SQL WHERE clause defining the features on the input layer on which the operation will be performed.

Default: All features on the input layer will be checked to see if the measures on the features need to be updated.


  "objectIds": [<objectId1>, <objectId2>, ...]


  "where": "field1 in ('<value1>', '<value2>', ...)"


  "objectIds": [1, 3, 5]

  "where": "lineId in ('{124EF4E1-D6D7-47CD-A993-6E036584742C}', '{7BC4E070-CD40-40B0-8F13-75C75B3A80CF}')"

Description: The name of the Input Layer field that contains the route ID value.

Syntax: routeIdFieldName="<field name>"

Example: routeIdFieldName="ROUTEID"


Description: The name of the Input Layer field that contains the measure value for point features, or the from measure value for polyline features.

Syntax: fromMeasureFieldName="<field name>"

Example: fromMeasureFieldName ="FROMMEASURE"


Description: The name of the Input Layer field that contains the to measure value for polyline features.

Syntax: toMeasureFieldName="<field name>"

Example: toMeasureFieldName ="TOMEASURE"


Optional parameter to specify the geodatabase version to use. If this parameter is not specified, the published map's version is used.

Syntax: gdbVersion=<version>

Example: gdbVersion="user1.version1"


Optional parameter set by a client during long transaction editing on a branch version. The sessionId parameter value is a GUID that clients establish at the beginning and use throughout the edit session. The sessonId parameter ensures isolation during the edit session.

Syntax: sessionId=<guid>

Example: sessionId="{E81C2E2D-C6A7-40CB-BF61-FB499E53DD1D}"


Optional parameter to specify whether the response reports the time edits that were applied. If returnEditMoment=true, the server returns the time edits that were applied in the response's editMoment key. The default value is false.

Values: true|false


Optional parameter that 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 from the geodatabase. If returnServiceEditsOption is set to originalAndCurrentFeatures, the deleted destination feature is returned along with a reference to the deleted original feature in the response. Note that, even for deletions, the geometry and attributes of the edited feature are returned.

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

Service-level applyEdits response structure:

    attachments: {

The editedFeatures object returns full features, including the original features prior to deletion, the original and current features for updates, and the current rows for inserts that can contain implicit changes (for example, 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 values and exceededTransferLimit=true if the count of edited features to return is more than the maxRecordCount value. If clients are using this parameter to maintain a cache, they should invalidate the cache when exceededTransferLimit=true is returned. If the server encounters an error when generating the list of edits in the response, exceededTransferLimit=true is also returned.

The default value is none, which does not include editedFeatures values.

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

Values: none|originalAndCurrentFeatures
