Configuring disconnected deployment for Product on Demand

Available with Maritime Charting license.

You can deploy the JavaScript Viewer in a disconnected environment for Product on Demand (PoD). This is necessary if there is no Internet connection available, or Internet access is prohibited by your organization. Referenced sources must be replaced with locally available sources.

Setting ArcGIS API for JavaScript

  1. Sign in to ArcGIS for Developers using your credentials.
  2. Browse to and download ArcGIS API for JavaScript 3.28.

    The extracted library is located in your local machine at <downloaded location>\arcgis_js_v328_api\arcgis_js_api\library.

  3. Create an arcgis_js_api folder at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\pod\js if you are using IIS to deploy your web app.
  4. Copy the entire extracted library folder to C:\inetpub\wwwroot\pod\js\arcgis_js_api\.
  5. Open the init.js file (at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\pod\js\arcgis_js_api\library\3.28\3.28\) in a text editor.
  6. Browse through the .js file and replace https://[HOSTNAME_AND_PATH_TO_JSAPI]dojo with https://gisserver.domain.com/pod/js/arcgis_js_api/library/3.28/3.28/dojo.
  7. Click Save and close the init.js file.
  8. Open the dojo.js file (at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\pod\js\arcgis_js_api\library\3.28\3.28\dojo\) in a text editor.
  9. Browse through the .js file and replace https://[HOSTNAME_AND_PATH_TO_JSAPI]dojo with http://gisserver.domain.com/pod/js/arcgis_js_api/library/3.28/3.28/dojo.
  10. Click Save and close the dojo.js file.

Updating basemaps

For more information on creating a map service and publishing it to the server, see FAQ: Can basemaps be used without an internet connection?.

Once the URL is generated, you will need to set basemap to be the URL in the podconfig.js and podconfig_i18n.js files at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\pod\js\.

basemap: https://gisserver.domain.com/arcgis/rest/services/yourBaseMap/MapServer,
Note:

While publishing a Basemap select the Using tiles from a cache option under Caching tab to draw a map service.

Updating a geometry service

Use geometryServiceURL to update to a local geometry service installed with ArcGIS Server, for example, https://[hostname].[domain]/arcgis/rest/services/Utilities/Geometry/GeometryServer.

  1. Log in as a server manager by launching https://gisserver.domain.com/arcgis/manager.
  2. Browse to Services > Site(root).
  3. Click Utilities.
  4. Click Geometry Service.
  5. Browse through the podconfig.js and podconfig_i18n.js files at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\pod\js\.
  6. Replace the geometryServiceUrl from https://tasks.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/Geometry/GeometryServer with serviceURL + "/Utilities/Geometry/GeometryServer" in both files.
  7. Click Save and close the podconfig.js and podconfig_i18n.js files.

Updating a locator service

The default locator service is configured to use ArcGIS Online and is not available for disconnected deployments. You'll need to provide your own locator services in a disconnected deployment.

For more information, see Geocode services.

  1. Browse to the podconfig.js and podconfig_i18n.js files at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\pod\js\.
  2. Replace the geometryServiceUrl from https://geocode.arcgis.com/arcgis/rest/services/World/GeocodeServer with the custom locator service URL.
  3. Click Save and close the podconfig.js and podconfig_i18n.js files.
