did you see Featureset in the help files and some of its arcpy methods

FeatureSet—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop

hi

I found in the documentation that ArcGIS server accepts featureset as input and output, but not featureclass. Do i need to convert following script to publish gp service ? If yes how ?

import arcpy

Buffer_distance = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0)

citybuffer = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(1)

cities = "C:\\project\\test.gdb\\cities"

arcpy.Buffer_analysis(cities, citybuffer, Buffer_distance, "FULL", "ROUND", "NONE", "")

There is a sample script at the bottom of the page that Dan linked to. But the command is

feature_set.load(feature_class)

try using your "cities" as the feature_class input and see if that works.

Do you want the GP service to always use the data referenced in the cities variable? Or, do you want to supply a different cities layer each run?

Thanks to all for suggestions.

GP service always use data referenced in cities variable.
