GeocodeRSS Layers - private RSS feed, is it possible?

Discussion created by halljames on Feb 27, 2014
We have a requirement to display a Geocoded RSS feed on a JS API Map viewer.  I was previously aware that the samples would actually pass the URL of the RSS feed to a online service for display which is not acceptable to us as we want to keep everything local.

I have since locally installed the JS API to our web server thinking this will sort the problem out, however, the one thing I wanted still goes to http://www.arcgis.com/sharing/rss to convert the XML RSS feed into esri compatible Json.

Is there any way to achieve this.

I did find some info from the following URL http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/67730-GeoRSS-examples-not-working where it showed me that I could override the URL it uses to proxy the information.  I attempted to use a custom proxy handler that I wrote to return my own RSS feed, but I would need to know the required format so that the esri map can process it.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this.
