Merge

Description

Merge creates a new parcel by merging two or more existing parcels in the parcel fabric. Adjacent parcels can be merged to create a single parcel and disjoint parcels can be merged to create multipart parcels.

When merging parcels without an active record, parcel history will not be tracked and parcels won't be associated to the records that created or retired them.

Request parameters

ParameterDetails
gdbVersion

Parameter specifying the name of the geodatabase version (the default is the DEFAULT version).

Syntax

gdbVersion=<version>
sessionId

Parameter representing the token (guid) used to lock the version. If the calling client is editing a named version, the session ID is required. If the specified version is currently locked by any other session, the request will fail if the session ID is not provided or does not match the session ID that holds the exclusive lock. If the client is editing the default version, the session ID is not required.

Syntax

sessionId=<guid>
moment

(Required)

Parameter representing the session moment (the default is the version current moment).

Syntax

moment=<datetime>
parcentParcels

Parameter representing the parent parcels to be merged.

Syntax

parentParcels=[{"id":"<parcelguid>","layerId":"<layerID>"},{...}]
record

Parameter for the unique identifier (guid) of the record being used for the merge. If missing, the merged parcel is not associated to any record and parcel lineage is not tracked.

Syntax

record=<guid>
targetParcelType

Parameter representing the target parcel type (ID) in which the new, merged parcel will be created.

Syntax

targetParcelType=<layer id>
mergeInto

(Optional)

Parameter representing one of the parent parcels into which the other parcels will be merged. Merging parcels into existing parcels will not create historic parcels and parcel lineage will not be tracked.

Syntax

mergeInto=<parcelguid>
defaultAreaUnit

(Required)

Parameter representing the default area units to be used when calculating the stated area of the merged parcel. The stated area of the merged parcel will be calculated if the stated areas exist on the parcels being merged.

Syntax

defaultAreaUnit=<area unit code>
attributeOverrides

(Required)

Parameter representing a list of attributes to override on the new merged parcel.

Syntax

attributeOverrides={"type":"PropertySet","propertySetItems":["<FieldName>",<value>,"<FieldName>",<value>,.....,"IsSeed",0]}


//If not overriding any attributes
attributeOverrides={"type":"PropertySet","propertySetItems":["isseed",0]}
f

The response format. The default response format is html.

Values: html | json

Example usage

This example shows the steps for merging parcels using the merge operation.

Note:
The sessionId parameters must be the same for starting the edit session, performing the edit operation and stopping the edit session.

  1. Start a service session on the version.

    Request URL and parameters:

    https://machine.domain.com/webadaptor/rest/services/CountyFabric/VersionManagementServer/versions/E4DAED9D-C859-489B-9053-767A45F1D97C/startReading
    f=json
    sessionId={02DB3EE7-17D4-47B2-AFD1-F8EAFA22584E}

  2. Start an edit session on the version.

    Request URL and parameters:

    https://machine.domain.com/webadaptor/rest/services/CountyFabric/VersionManagementServer/versions/E4DAED9D-C859-489B-9053-767A45F1D97C/startEditing
    f=json
    sessionId={02DB3EE7-17D4-47B2-AFD1-F8EAFA22584E}

  3. Merge two parcels into a single parcel. Override the Name, StatedArea and StatedAreaUnit attributes.

    Request URL and parameters:

    https://machine.domain.com/webadaptor/rest/services/CountyFabric/ParcelFabricServer/merge
    f=json
    gdbVersion=admin.Version1
    sessionId={02DB3EE7-17D4-47B2-AFD1-F8EAFA22584E}
    moment=1575571055864
    parentParcels=[{"id":"{A6486E07-47A6-44B6-AEC1-84581489E17C}","layerId":"28"},{"id":"{A8888BF3-4EC0-440C-92AF-DED78210F94C}","layerId":"28"}]
    record={8CF6DC8D-41F4-4D75-93B5-87375BC8F9E3}
    targetParcelType=28
    defaultAreaUnit=109405
    attributeOverrides={"type":"PropertySet","propertySetItems":["name","0713210004","statedarea",15440.6,"statedareaunit",109406,"isseed",0]}
  4. If edits are complete, stop the edit session.
  5. Stop and release the service session.
