Create a Feature or Map Service Layer

This article explains how to create a Feature or Map Service Layer.

Instructions

First you will need to Create a Layer.

Note: If you are unsure of the layer type, look at the GIS Service URL. If it ends with "..FeatureServer/<id>", then it is a Feature Service. If it ends with "../MapServer", then it is a Map Service.

  1. Enter your Service URL.
  2. Turn Secured GIS Service to ON.
  3. Click Test.If you have connected successfully a green dialog box will appear.
  4. Then click Save & Continue.
  5. This is if you want to set a Reference Field. This is an optional field and not required to create the layer. Select the field that your users will see to identify the GIS feature. For a "Construction Site" layer you would like choose the "Project Name" field. For a "Manhole" layer you would like choose the "Manhole ID" field.
  6. In this case because this is an Outfall layer, Iā€™m going to select ā€œOutfall IDā€.
  7. Then click Save.

You have now created a Feature or Map Service Layer!
