Hello there

I have installed Portal for GIS 10.2.1 and i have windows authentication configured to access the Portal. I have Federated my Portal with ArcGIS server 10.2.1 and i have also added it as a hosting server which has a managed sde database

I have added a CSV file to my content and i was able to publish it as a feature service. and i am able to see the features on the map . and the data at my sde oracle database.

I have tried to add a valid geometry  shapefile directly to the map but i get this error

"Unable to import this shapefile. (Generate Features error: Server tool execution failed : ERROR 999999: Error executing function. No shape file found in item. Failed to execute (Generate Features for Portal). Failed.)"

I have tried to add the same shape file to my content and publish it as a feature service. but the service is never created.

I have check ArcGIS Server Logs and it says


  • Error executing tool.: ERROR 999999: Error executing function. No shape file found in item. Failed to execute (Publish Portal Service)


  • Unable to process request. Service Hosted/Tempo/MapServer not found



  • No shape file found in item.

I have tried to add the same shapefile to the ArcGIS Online and it works perfectly fine as well as the feature service.

Request your support on this issue.

Hello Ravi

Thanks for your reply. Yes the .zip file contains all the 5 files. I have even uploaded it successfully to ArcGIS online. but it is not working with the portal for GIS.

Thanks


make sure the .zip file does not have the 5 files nested in a folder, this is the default way windows creates .zips. 

ie..

[INDENT]file.zip
[INDENT]file
[INDENT]the 5 files[/INDENT][/INDENT][/INDENT]

is wrong


[INDENT]file.zip
[INDENT]the 5 files[/INDENT][/INDENT]

is right.

Hi Kareem,

It appears the item uploaded does not contain a shapefile in the format that is expected.  Shapefiles must be compressed as a .zip file containing .shp, .shx, .dbf, and .prj files. can you confirm if you are doing this?

Hello Jacob

Two Thank you. one for your reply. and another one because this worked perfectly fine. but i am confused why the same old file works on the ArcGIS Online.

I had to do two more changes to ArcGIS Server Security Configuration in order to make it work.

C:\arcgisserver\config-store\security\security-config.json

"securityEnabled": false,
"sslEnabled": false,

Because every time i am asked for a token even if i made it last longer.

but anyways Thanks guys for your help.

yeah, i'm not sure why either...

when i was troubleshooting another issue, i mentioned it to the analyst and he suggested that might be the underlying issue with the imports.
