Hello All

Could someone help me in understanding the licensing level as in 10.8.1?

Question: Which of the following two combinations when published as a web map would require an editor license to add and remove features ?
 
Option 1:
Base maps from enterprise portal 10.8.1 or ArcGIS Online
Editable feature services from a federated/hosting published via portal?
 
Yes. We need a Editor license.
 
Option 2:
Base maps from enterprise portal 10.8.1 or ArcGIS Online
Editable feature services published from standalone ArcGIS Server?
 
My guess is no. Can someone confirm this?
 
 
1. Can editable WFS-T editable feature services published from an open-source GIS server can be added to the webmap?  Using the Add an Item from the web option in Portal mapviewer supports WFS but there is no reference to WFS-T?

It looks like the way Esri prevents this is very simple, you can add a Geoserver WFS-T service to an Esri "map" but you cannot edit it.

In Geoserver, enabling editing means giving "complete" access to the service and setting appropriate permissions. (In my test, I enabled anonymous writes.) There is no separate support for WFS-T, just "WFS"

If you can't put a writable layer into an esri map, then you can't create apps either.

It looks like you can't edit WFS-T in ArcGIS Pro either.

You can use OpenLayers (I've never tried Leaflet) and QGIS to consume most Esri services but not the other way around.

I could see workflows where you could use open source to put data into a Geoserver WFS-T service and then view it in a webmap, for example automated collection via a GPS tracker.

I am thinking the only hope of something working would be #3, WFS-T

What server are you planning on using for WFS-T? Geoserver?

Hi Brian

Yes, I am considering GeoServer for WFS-T. Just like to understand the impact on licensing

Thanks Brian. You guessed it right. Just trying to propose a solution that would combine the best of both ArcGIS Enterprise and GeoServer WFS-T with an eye on licensing. However it appears that  this is not possible. Will keep exploring. Thanks for your support
