Configuring the Event Editor web application

Several properties can be configured in the Event Editor web application. Open the config.json file in the EventEditor web folder on the web server to modify and deploy.

Configuring the Event Editor web application is one of the steps (step 8 of 9) of the deployment process. Ensure that all steps before this are completed before continuing with configuring the Event Editor web application.

Event Editor configuration properties

PropertiesDescription

webmap

Specifies the unique ID or URL to an authored web map hosted on ArcGIS.com or the web server. After authoring a web map and sharing it publicly, the contents can be accessed directly by a URL.

For example, if the web map is hosted on ArcGIS.com, log in with your global account and browse to My Content. Click the title of the web map you are interested in to get more details. At this point, the URL looks like the following format: http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=<webmapID>.

For example: http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=1dcf369089804329946e3b3abf385251.

Copy only the ID portion of the URL as the web map ID value for the configuration.

"webmap": "1dcf369089804329946e3b3abf385251",

If the web map is hosted on a server, the URL looks similar to the following: http://<HostName>/EventEditor/rwc.json, where rwc.json is the text file that contains the web map definition.

"webmap": "http://<Host Name>/EventEditor/rwc.json",
