I have a python tool that will take a point feature class and does some magic and returns a polygon feature class (it works out areas where the points are clustered, adds fields, yadda yadda yadda). It runs great, does what I want it to do.
I need to turn that into a geoprocessing service that a user can run from arcmap and returns the polygon features as a layer to arcmap. How do I do that? I am able to run the tool and share the result as a service, but the service returns an empty result.
I think I'm just not able to follow the documentation on how to return a feature set to the user. Do I need to start a feature service using the results? If so, every time a user runs the tool does it start a new service? What parameters in python and on the service creation wizard do I need to set to enable this?
Thanks in advance...
