Update Time Slider Extent Without Disabling/Enabling Time in Map

Question asked by CarmellaBurdi on Jun 7, 2017

Hello all,

 

I have some questions about time sliders extents and auto-populating them. 

 

I am using Portal 10.4 and cannot upgrade at this time. 

  • I have a web application that has a basemap with a time aware layer in it. 
  • I have a GP service that performs some calculations - one of which is updating my time fields that inform the time aware layer and my time slider. 
  • I have a time slider widget in my app that I want to then use to show the updated time data that my GP service just calculated.
  • However, the time aware data layer that's in my map/app does not update when the GP service is run... making it pretty useless as you'd have to then open up the map you created, turn off disable time, re-enable time, etc....

I'm looking for a way to make sure that the map updates itself when you run the GP service. 

 

I found this thread here that kind of sort of answers my questions - but I'm not really using the Java Script

API and my JS is limited. I could use it if someone could give me very step-by-step instructions. I'm not totally without the ability to alter the JS. I'm using web app builder for developers 2.4. 

 

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!
