I have map on Portal (10.8.1) with four editable layers. I need to add few layers for reference as not editable. Once I do that, the map no longer is able to be taken offline.
The option on the map in FieldMaps "Add Offline Area" disappears. I tried adding not editable layers as MapServer or FeatureServer without editing. In both cases the option for "Add Offline Area" goes away.
Is it by design? Is there a way to have not editable layers in a map and be able to "Add Offline Area"?
@lxd have you enabled sync on your non editable layers? This needs enabling to be able to take features offline, whether editable or not
If your non-editable layers aren't hosted and in a registered datastore, then stick them in an SDE (Relational Geodatabase) and enable archiving.
Databases (including enterprise geodatabases) are supported for connected map use. An enterprise geodatabase is required for working offline. File geodatabases are not supported. The versions of ArcGIS Server and geodatabases that are required vary depending on the functionality required. See the following table for details:
|Connected and offline map use||Connected map use||Offline map use|
Editable data—Nonversioned, archived
¹Global IDs are required for offline use.
²These require versioned data for editing. When used in Field Maps, all feature services that participate in a geometric network are treated as simple feature services, and the restrictions of the geometric network are ignored.
No, I still don't know how to take the map offline with my not editable layers. The layers are in SDE (enterprise geodatabases), the sync is enabled when publishing. The layers are non versioned and have archiving enabled. When I publish the same layers with editable database connection, maps has "offline" option, with viewer database connection, with sync enabled, the offline option disappears.
Facing the same issue when offline download feature Service layers (connects non-editable, Non-versioned, archived sde data) in Field map. the error log show Error: 400 seems like replica issue.
it work good if the map contains only versioned, editable layers. Any one have any solution for my issue in ArcGIS 10.9.1
What if we are trying to include data that we aren't the owners of (another department in the city manages it)? I am wondering what happens if you have data you don't want to edit or don't own and therefore can't adjust the sync in your Field Map app? Can you not take things off line in this case? We need certain data for reference, but not for updating.
Thanks in advance,
We are investigating the same issue with 10.9.1. We have edible layers and non-editable reference layers (like parcels). Since I do not own the parcels dataset, I cannot change the schema. Ideally both would be in the map to use in ArcGIS Field Maps.
