Are there any plans for future releases to allow administrators/publishers of an online subscription to add their own geoprocessing services that are hosted from their ArcGIS for Server? 

The Analysis Tools in AGOL are great, but are only accessible to admin or publisher roles.  I am guessing that this is the case, since the results are stored as ???contents??? rather than returned to the map as a graphic.  We need those with a User role to have access to simple analyses, like buffer a feature or features. 

Programmers who develop with the Flex, JavaScript or Silverlight web APIs are able to add GP tools to their toolbars.  Might we be able to do the same in our ArcGIS Online maps in the future?  Or, might some of the Analysis Tools be available to a User role and return graphics instead of stored content?

Thank you.

Hi Joe,

There are no plans at this time to publish Geoprocessing Services to ArcGIS Online, but these are good ideas. It sounds like there are 2 issues you are looking to address.

1. Allow the ability for the 'User' role to Perform Analysis
2. Add custom Geoprocessing functionality to ArcGIS Online applications.

Hi gentleman,

I know this thread has been answered, but are you saying that I cannot add a Geoprocessing tool like Extract Data Task to AGOL anduse it as a GP service so that I can configure a flex application  widget? I can publish a GP tool as a Tool package but just can't use it.

Say it ain't so.:(

Hi Cary,

Correct, there are currently no plans to host your Geoprocessing Services in ArcGIS Online. To create a Geoprocessing Service, you will have to publish to an ArcGIS for Server.

Thank you,
Andrew
