Tutorial: Advanced high-quality web map printing/exporting using arcpy.mapping

Discussion created by ionarawilson on May 17, 2013
Hi guys,

I am trying to learn more about publishing webmaps with geoprocessing services. I followed a tutorial to create high-quality webmaps:

http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#/Tutorial_Advanced_high_quality_web_map_printing_exporting_using_arcpy_mapping/0057000000mq000000/



However when I click to see the maps it always brings the same map (NorthwesternUSA), but with the right label. For example, if I clicked on CentralUSA, it brings the NorthwesternUSA map with the CentralUSA label. And even if I click on the layers to turn them off and on, only the same layers show on the map, which tells me it is bringing a map already stored in the server.
I am not sure why this is happening, but I am guessing it could be that when I copied and pasted the python script to create the maptask for the geoprocessing service, I ran it right there, before creating a python script tool and following the other steps. If that is the case, do you guys know what I should do to fix this? Thank you so much for any help!!!

Attached is the image of the application and the map it created.
