Configure the Event Editor security model

The following workflow defines the recommended security model for protecting data in Event Editor. You can configure multiple instances of Event Editor for different user groups and use Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA), or a portal in ArcGIS Enterprise or ArcGIS Online to protect the data in the map service deployed in each Event Editor instance.

  1. Open and publish a linear referencing-capable map service for each Event Editor user group.

    As a best practice, add only the event layers necessary for the group's workflow.

  2. Open Enterprise or ArcGIS Online in a web browser and set permissions for each map service published.
  3. Browse to the EventEditor folder and copy the configuration file.

    By default, this file is named config.json.

  4. Rename the file.
  5. Change the webmap properties to point to the map service you published and configured in steps 1 through 4.
  6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 for each Event Editor user group.

User groups can now access their own instance of Event Editor through a URL parameter:


If special characters, such as the at sign (@), are part of the Event Editor URL, they need to be encoded. Only users with sufficient privileges are permitted to view and edit the contents of this Event Editor instance.
