Hi all, 

I want to use python to upload a web layer as  https://pro.arcgis.com/de/pro-app/3.1/tool-reference/server/upload-service-definition.htm shows, if the layer is already in the map view, everything is ok

however, I want to upload the data directly from geodatabase, and I don't know what to do. Here's what I tried:

and the error I got:

what should I do?

try this instead

aprx = arcpy.mp.ArcGISProject("Current")
### Bug Fix ###
aprx.closeViews("MAPS")
aprx.listMaps("Map")[0].openView()
aprx.save()
Thanks,
Brandon

To non German speaker: the error means: The chosen Layer hat no required layer-typ for web-feature-layer, object: map

@ZiqingYu 

I'm assuming we used the same code sample and part of that sample has something like this in it:

#read draft file
docs = DOM.parse(sddraftpath)
key_list = docs.getElementsByTagName('Key')
value_list = docs.getElementsByTagName('Value')

#Sharing level
Share_Organization = "false"
Share_Everyone = "false"
Share_Group = "true"

#Sharing to Deed Notice Inspection Tool Group
GroupID = ""#set sharing values
for i in range(key_list.length):
    if key_list[i].firstChild.nodeValue == "PackageUnderMyOrg":
        value_list[i].firstChild.nodeValue = Share_Organization
    if key_list[i].firstChild.nodeValue == "PackageIsPublic":
        value_list[i].firstChild.nodeValue = Share_Everyone
    if key_list[i].firstChild.nodeValue == "PackageShareGroups":
        value_list[i].firstChild.nodeValue = Share_Group
    if Share_Group == "true" and key_list[i].firstChild.nodeValue == "PackageGroupIDs":
        value_list[i].firstChild.nodeValue = GroupID

#write to sddraftfile
f = open(sddraftpath, 'w')
docs.writexml(f)
f.close()

I have this same issue and I just discovered today that removing line 23-26 removes the error and allows it to publish. Hope this helps

Thanks,

Hi Brandon,

Actually I'm using this code sample from the same page, the lines you mentioned are not used by me. 

import arcpy
import os

# Sign in to portal
arcpy.SignInToPortal("https://www.arcgis.com", "MyUserName", "MyPassword")

# Set output file names
outdir = r"C:\Project\Output"
service_name = "FeatureSharingDraftExample"
sddraft_filename = service_name + ".sddraft"
sddraft_output_filename = os.path.join(outdir, sddraft_filename)
sd_filename = service_name + ".sd"
sd_output_filename = os.path.join(outdir, sd_filename)

# Reference layers to publish
aprx = arcpy.mp.ArcGISProject(r"C:\Project\World.aprx")
m = aprx.listMaps('World')[0]
selected_layer = m.listLayers()[0]
selected_table = m.listTables()[0]

# Create FeatureSharingDraft
server_type = "HOSTING_SERVER"
sddraft = m.getWebLayerSharingDraft(server_type, "FEATURE", service_name, [selected_layer, selected_table])

# Create Service Definition Draft file
sddraft.exportToSDDraft(sddraft_output_filename)

# Stage Service
print("Start Staging")
arcpy.server.StageService(sddraft_output_filename, sd_output_filename)

# Share to portal
print("Start Uploading")
arcpy.server.UploadServiceDefinition(sd_output_filename, server_type)

print("Finish Publishing")

 

And this code actually works if  I drag and drop the data from geodatabase into the  project view and then run the publish code.

It doesn't work when I use

selected_layer = m.addDataFromPath(shape_in_gdb)

to do this step, which confused me.

Best,

Ziqing

@ZiqingYu would you be surprised to find out the the fix I implemented last week does not work today and I am now receiving the error again. 

I do use add data from path as my script creates new layers and tables that are being published. When I add the feature manually I still receive the error though.

Thanks,
Brandon

@ZiqingYu 

Since you pointed out the .addDataFromPath was causing the issue I was able to reproduce that as the cause of the error.

I found that using .addDataFromPath then restarting ArcPro and running the block of code where I attempt to publish will work 100% of the time (5/5 times to be exact). 

So I assumed that the map object just needed to be refreshed: adding this line of code seems to work for me test and let me know if it works for you. I have this done before I create the sddraft using .getWebLayerSharingDraft().

aprx = arcpy.mp.ArcGISProject("CURRENT")
aprx.closeViews("MAPS")
aprx.listMaps("Map")[0].openView()
