Hi,

I've got a feature service with attachments enabled (it's a point layer with photos on that can be edited in the field and photos recorded using an ipad) that I'm trying to export out of arcgis online.
Every way that I try to export it doesn't include the attachments, is it possible?

Many thanks,

Andy

I'm updating this answer based on the current version. You can export to a file geodatabase that will contain the attachments.

Navigate to the item page of your hosted feature layer.

Find the layer you want to export features and click the small arrow next to the name to reveal a context menu, and export the data to a file geodatabase. You can then download a ZIP file of the geodatabase, that will contain the attachments

Export of attachments is supported through the API only at this time. It was not included in the update this week.

You can navigate to the REST endpoint of your service, like this:

http://services.arcgis.com/xxxx/arcgis/rest/services/states/FeatureServer

Click Create Replica
Specify the Layers by index number e.g., 0,1,2 (this service above has 5 layers)
Set the boolean values to true.
Sync Model = none
Data Format = FileGDB
Click Create Replica.

This will start a process that will yield a zip file you can download.


Thanks,

Mike

Unfortunately, we don't currently export attachments. We hope to support this in a future update.

Seems crazy that this isn't already possible given that ArcGIS Online seems to be all about sharing data. Hopefully this will happen soon since it's already possible with ArcGIS Server.

How soon can we expect export of attachments from a hosted feature service to be an available option?  It's currently the primary deterrent against my organization making better use of hosted feature services.

Any word on how soon this future update might be coming?

No release of this coming in the near term.  Our efforts are currently focused on database synchronization, rather than export and manual synchronization.

Thanks,

It's our reason for considering abandonment of arcgis online.....no support for many simple commons things like this.....

The ability to export feature classes and attachments from ArcGIS Online to my enterprise geodatabase is extremely important to my organization. This definitely needs to be focus of ESRI since all other ESRI products are integrating with each other and able to share data bi-directionally.

ArcGIS for Desktop 10.2 will support "Creating a local copy" of the service that will also contain the attachments.

Thanks,
