Hello All

We use Esri Maps for MicroStrategy v2.0.1. What is the recommended way to transport a Location Architect model which was created in a MicroStrategy project A to project B?

Regards

Christoph

If project A is duplicated to Create Project B after location Architect has been configured, the model will be automatically imported into Project B.

The only other way of successfully exporting model from Project A to Project B is if all object used to create the Location Architect model in Project A have identical Object IDS in Project A and Project B in this case.

Ask your Microstrategy Administrator to help verify the object Id's of the items in your model ensure you backup your models before applying any changes.

The simplest way to do this is to

  1. Open location Architect in Project A
  2. Open browser developer tools
  3. Inspect area between save model button and reset model button
  4. Once Div showing these buttons is visible expand  <div class="column">
  5. Edit Html of last span in this div <span class="dijit dijitReset dijitInline dijitButton" role="presentation" widgetid="dijit_form_Button_2" style="display: none;"> and remove the style setting
  6. View/Edit Model button will be visible click this button and and copyJSON  text window
  7. This is JSON value of the model, this can be saved as a backup of the current project.
  8. If Project B is a duplicate of Project A where Objects in Project A have the same ID as Objects in Project B, this model JSON can be used to create an identical model in Project B
  9. Open Location Architect in Project B repeat steps 2-6 and paste test copied from Project A, and click apply in the View Edit Model window.
  10. Once you have verified the model is correct, you can now save this model
