Description

Publishes a hosted service based on an existing source item.

Publishers can create feature services as well as tiled map services. Feature services can be created using input files of type csv, excel, shapefile, serviceDefinition, geojson, sqliteGeodatabase, featureCollection, and fileGeodatabase.

  • CSV and Microsoft Excel files (.xls, .xlsx) that contain location fields (for example, address fields or x,y fields) are spatially enabled during the process of publishing.
  • Shapefiles and file geodatabases should be packaged as .zip files.
  • Tiled map services can be created from service definition (.sd) files, tile packages, and existing feature services.
  • Service definitions are authored in ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro and contain both the cartographic definition for a map and its packaged data together with the definition of the geoservice to be created.
  • Vector tile packages (.vtpk) are created from a map (or a basemap) with the Create Vector Tile Package tool in ArcGIS Pro.
  • Use the Analyze operation to generate the default publishing parameters for CSV files and Microsoft Excel files.

publishParameters

A JSON object describing the service to be created as part of the publish operation. The appropriate value for publish parameters depends on the file type being published. For more information, see individual publisher parameter sections below.

Note:

The publishParameters properties are optional when publishing a service definition (.sd), vector tile package (.vtpk), or tile package (.tpk) file.

Example

publishParameters={"name":"Streets"}
outputType

Only used when a feature service is published as a tile service.

Note:

This parameter applies to ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise portal 10.5 or above.

Values: true | false

deleteSourceItemUponCompletion

If true, the source item will be deleted when publishing is complete. Used when overwriting hosted feature services published from a cloud drive (for example, Google Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive) to prevent duplicate source item relates to the service.

Values: true | false

itemIdToCreate

New at 10.8.1. The item ID of the item. The item ID must not exist and must be 32 alphanumeric values.

Note:

itemIdToCreate applies to ArcGIS Enterprise Portal only.

CSV publish parameters JSON properties

The publishParameters JSON object used to publish a CSV file is described below.

ParameterDetails
type

Indicates a CSV file.

Example

"type": "csv"
name

(Required)

locationType

(Required)

Specifies the data contained in the CSV or Excel file. If set as coordinates, the CSV or Excel data contains x,y information. If set as address, the CSV or Excel data contains address fields that will be geocoded to a single point. If set as lookup, the CSV or Excel data contains fields that can be mapped to well-known sets of geographies. If set to none, the CSV or Excel data contains no spatial content, and data will be loaded and subsequently queried as tabular data.

Note:

Based on this parameter, additional parameters will be required. For example, when specifying coordinates as the locationType, the latitude and longitude fields below will need to be specified.

Values: coordinates | address | lookup | none

latitudeFieldName

(Required if locationType is coordinates)

Specifies the name of the field that contains the y-coordinate.

longitudeFieldName

(Required if locationType is coordinates)

Specifies the name of the field that contains the x-coordinate.

Shapefile, feature collections, and file geodatabases publish parameters JSON properties

The publishParameters JSON object used to publish shapefiles, feature collections, and file geodatabases is described below.

ParameterDetails
name

Name of the published service. The same name is reused as the name for the single layer within the service if the layerInfoparameter is not provided.

Example

"name": "Name of published result"
description

A user-friendly description for the published dataset. The same description is reused for the single layer within the service if the layerInfo parameter is not provided.

Example

"description": "test description"
maxRecordCount

A double value indicating any constraints enforced on query operations. The default is -1 or int.MaxValue indicating no constraint.

Example

"maxRecordCount": 500
copyrightText

Copyright information associated with the dataset.

Example

"copyrightText": "test copyright"
layerInfo

A JSON object that provides additional information about the dataset. The JSON format resembles the layerDescriptor used in publishing feature services to an on-premises spatial data server or ArcGIS Server.

Example

{
  "name": "<layer name>",  
  "type": "Feature Layer", 
  "description": "<description>", 
  "copyrightText": "<copyright text>", 
  "geometryType": "<geometry type>", 
  "minScale": <number>, 
  "maxScale": <number>, 
  "extent": {<extent JSON with spatial ref>}, 
  "drawingInfo": {<drawing info JSON>}, 
  "hasAttachments": false, 
  "htmlPopupType": "<popup type>", 
  "objectIdField": "<object Id field>", 
  "globalIdField": "", 
  "typeIdField": "<type Id field>", 
  "fields": [<array of field JSON objects>], 
  "types": [<array of type JSON objects>], 
  "templates": [<array of type JSON objects>], 
  "capabilities": "<Query and/or Editing, comma separated>"
}
targetSR

Target spatial reference of the geometries as stored in the database. The default is WKID 102100.

Example

"targetSR": {"wkid": 4326}

Shapefile, feature collections, and file geodatabases publish parameters example

A sample publishParameters JSON object for publishing shapefiles, feature collections, and file geodatabases is as follows:

{
  "name": "Name of published result",
  "description": "test description",
  "maxRecordCount": 500,
  "copyrightText": "test copyright",
  "targetSR": {"wkid": 4326},
  "layerInfo": {
    "name": "States From File", 
    "type": "Feature Layer", 
    "geometryType": "esri GeometryPolygon", 
    "minScale": 0, 
    "maxScale": 0,
    "drawingInfo": {
      "renderer": {
        "type": "simple", 
        "symbol": {
          "type": "esriSFS",
          "style": "esriSFSSolid",
          "color": [115,76,0,255],
          "outline": {
            "type": "esriSLS",
            "style": "esriSLSSolid",
            "color": [110,110,110,255],
            "width": 1
          }
        }
      },
      "transparency": 0, 
      "labelingInfo": null
    }, 
    "htmlPopupType": "esriServerHTMLPopupTypeNone", 
    "fields": [], 
    "capabilities": "Query,Editing"
  }
}

Response properties

PropertyDetails
type

The resulting item is a feature service, map service, or vector tile service URL item.

serviceURL

The URL to the hosted feature, map service, or vector tile service.

size

The approximate size required for the service.

jobId

The job ID of the publishing process. All publishing operations are executed asynchronously. The caller is supposed to hold on to the job ID and check for job status. The status can be checked using Status passing in jobTypeas a query parameter, for example, jobType set as publish.

serviceItemId

The ID of the new service item.

preserveEditUsersAndTimestamps

The preserveEditUsersAndTimestamps parameter allows the user to preserve editor tracking info of the users and time stamps while publishing online.

Note:

The default is not to preserve editor tracking info.

Example

{
  "editorTrackingInfo": {
    "enableEditorTracking": true
    "preserveEditUsersAndTimeStamps": true
  }
}

Response properties from publishing a tile service from an existing feature service

PropertyDetails
type

The resulting item is a map service URL item.

serviceURL

The URL to the hosted feature or map service.

jobId

The job ID of the publishing process. All publishing operations are executed asynchronously. The caller is supposed to hold on to the job ID and check for job status. The status can be checked using Status passing in jobTypeas a query parameter, for example, jobType set as publish.

serviceItemId

The ID of the new service item.
