Is there a way to include the database field "shape.length" in a summary widget option field to sum the total length of a layer? I want to use the auto generated field for this total vs. having a user type in the length.
You must go into your web map & click on the layer you want to summarize length on... then go to configure pop up... and then go to Configure Attributes... You will then see the Shape Length field visible to check on.
Save your web map. Go back to your operations dashboard using that web map and make sure that layer is checked as a data sources within your map widget.
Then you will now see the Shape_Length field available to Sum on.
We have not been able to successfully sum on Shape Length field here though as the widget give us an error message & no data is populated within the widget to reflect sum length of layer being used. Very frustrating. We want to be able to sum length of pipe with our utilities data on specific layers that are drawn dynamically within our map services.
This would be such a huge benefit. I'm surprised their is not more posted about this topic.
Please let me know if you successfully get the Summary Widget to return results from your Operations Dashboard.
Alex - Thanks for the reply.
My problem is that the Shape Length field is not even an option to check on or off in my web map that I have used to create my dashboard from. Do you know how I am able to get this field so I can see it?
same problem with Shape AREA SUM: i can see this field inthe map service, webmap and Dashboard but the ID wdget gives always the same error "impossible to access to the data"
