Report Feature widget

The Report Feature widget enables you to collect and manage data quality feedback from users. Users can report existing features from the map that are in error or require additional review. They can also identify missing features by sketching them on the map. Feedback is stored in your geodatabase as a Reviewer Result where it is assessed and managed through a defined life cycle workflow.

Configuring the Report Feature widget

    A file explorer window opens, allowing you to select a local image file to use as the widget icon.
  3. Provide the Data Reviewer for Server URL, and click Set. The associated sessions in this new URL map service will populate the Default Session drop-down list.
  4. Choose how the Reviewer Technician attribute of a result is populated. Options for populating this attribute are as follows:
    • Logged in Username—The active portal username will populate the attribute.
    • Enter a default value—A pre-defined value will populate the attribute.
    • Allow user input—The user provides a value during submission.
  5. Choose the reviewer session to use as your default session from the drop-down list, and click OK.

    The Reviewer result will immediately save to the session you chose as your default session.

  7. To edit the alias name of a layer, double-click the current Alias name and type a new name.

    The layer alias value is used only for display purposes in the widget’s UI. The layer value is used to populate the resourceName attribute of a result.
