Is it possible to utilize a print service with Multiple Data Frames in Web App Builder?

I have published a print service that has  2 data frames( "DataFrame1","DataFrame2")in the print template. I would  like to be able to print 2 layers, 1 in each data frame. When I use the print task I only get the top layer(or what is visible at the scale) printed in DataFrame1, which was the active data frame when I published the service.DataFrame2 is just blank. How can I access and utilize DataFrame2? I have not been able to access it through any of the properties of the printtask object or the layout object.

Jamal,

   I don't believe that is possible. A second data frame can be used for static data like a overview map or something but the Print Task does not provide access to manipulate a dataframe.

This is pretty much what I'm finding. Not sure what other options I have.

I am not aware of any.

I was able to achieve this using the Arcpy mapping module in a geoprocessing service.

I'm trying to create a print service that has multiple data frames in the layout as well. Could you elaborate on how you were able to achieve this? Thanks

Margaret,

I created a template in Arcmap with 2 data frames. I then added my layers to both data frames(There is likely a more efficient way to do this, but since I was only using 10 layers I did it this way). In the python script I used the web map as json format to fake a webmap in. I then used the ConvertWebMapToMapDocument tool to create a print. 

Web_Map_as_JSON = {
"mapOptions": {
"extent": {
"xmin": -121.2525,
"ymin": 47.3671,
"xmax": -122.8498,
"ymax": 46.7341,
"spatialReference": {
"wkid": 2927,
"latestWkid": 2927
}
},
},
"operationalLayers": [],
"baseMap": {
"title": "cartoRoads",
"baseMapLayers": [
{
"id": "cartoRoads_1751",
"layerType": "ArcGISTiledMapServiceLayer",
"url": "",
"visibility": true,
"opacity": 1,
"title": "cartoRoads"
}
]

},
"exportOptions":{},
"layoutOptions":{},
"authoringApp": "WebMapViewer",
"authoringAppVersion": "6.2",
"version": "2.12",
"applicationProperties": {
"viewing": {
"routing": {
"enabled": true
},
"measure": {
"enabled": true
},
"basemapGallery": {
"enabled": true
}
}
}
}

###The webmap_as_json parameter isn't really that important if you're using your own template.

templateMxd = (r'\\'filePATH'\TestLayout.mxd')
result = arcpy.mapping.ConvertWebMapToMapDocument(Web_Map_as_JSON, templateMxd)
mxd = result.mapDocument

ImgLayer1 = sys.argv[1]#(This is simply the name of the layer sent as a string)
ImgLayer2 = sys.argv[2]
ImgLayer3 = sys.argv[3]

ExtentInYMax = sys.argv[4]
ExtentInYMin = sys.argv[5]
ExtentInXMax = sys.argv[6]
ExtentInXMin = sys.argv[7]

df1 = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(mxd)[1]

newExtent = df1.extent
newExtent.XMin, newExtent.YMin = ExtentInXMin, ExtentInYMin
newExtent.XMax, newExtent.YMax = ExtentInXMax, ExtentInYMax
df1.extent = newExtent
layers1= ListLayers(df1)

for layer in layers1:
   restLayer = "rest - "+layer.name;
   if restLayer == ImgLayer1:
      layer.visible = True

You can then turn layers on/off(Or add them from an outside location if possible), change extent etc. of each dataframe.
