We are currently facing a problem with ArcGIS Server that concerns a connection to an Oracle Database without "SDE or Enterprise GDB" functionalities. This means we have an Oracle 19c DB with tables that use SDO geometries. We are able to use these tables with ArcGIS Desktop (10.7.1).
But here is the problem: How to publish these maps to an ArcGIS Server (Linux)?
Do I still need to create a ".sde" connection file (or register a data item with the Rest API directly)? This seems to only make sense with enterprise geo databases.
Is is even possible to use ArcGIS Server without an Enterprise GDB but data from Oracle (SDO)?
