KML to Web Map service

Question asked by kfolger on Jul 23, 2014

I am trying to create a Geoprocessing Service from a kml file input.  I would like to use the Flexviewer builder and the Geoprocessing Tool.  I've created a service by publishing the results of a python script that runs and creates output data in file gdb format.  I would like the tool to be able to select an input kml file, run the script and then display the results on the web map as a temporary service.  The "actual" file gdb output would not be created - or maybe it needs to be since the KML to Layer tool in ArcGIS must run before it can be rendered into a service. I've got the tool available and I've defined the input as a DataFile.  However, when I try to enter anything into the DataFile location I get an error that it is invalid. Seems like there should be an easier way.  I am not an API programmer, just trying to use the available tools.  Seems like this should work.


We have our own internal ArcGIS for Server.
