Deploying redline routes

Disponible con licencia de Location Referencing.

The redline is a markup feature in the geodatabase that stores information about the proposed changes in the linear referencing system (LRS). The ArcGIS Event Editor web app can propose changes to the LRS through the Redline widget using redline routes.

LRS editors can then apply the redline as an official change to the LRS using ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing. The Redline Routes widget can be used to create, edit, and attach files to the redline routes. You can preconfigure redline activity types such as create route, extend route, realign route, realign concurrent route, calibrate route, retire route, reassign route, and so on.

For more information on redline routes, see the following:

To enable web redlining of routes using Event Editor, you should author a web map using ArcGIS Pro and include a redline feature class.

For detailed Event Editor web map authoring and configuration instructions, see the following:


Attribute fields in the redline feature class for which the Event Editor web app user is unable to provide data must be made nullable. This makes the data content for those fields optional.

The web app can be configured to automatically detect the redline layer using the name of any operational layers that you have configured in the web map. The redline layer name must have the same as the redline feature class name (including prefix) to autodetect the redline layer.

Items to ensure before you start

Before you deploy redline route capability in the Event Editor app, ensure the following requirements are met:

Enabling feature access and linear referencing capabilities

If you're including the redline layer in the same map service as your network and event layers, in the Share As Web Layer pane, General tab, check the Feature check box under Map Image before publishing.

Enabling map services

Event Editor supports Esri web maps, which can have only one linear referencing-capable map service.

You must also check the Version Management and Linear Referencing capabilities in the Share As Web Layer pane, Configuration tab, before publishing.

Deploying redline routes

Use the following steps to deploy redline routes for Event Editor:

Defining a feature template for the redline layer

The feature template for the redline layer is based on the feature symbology.

You can create new feature templates for your redline layer in ArcGIS Pro using the following steps.

  1. Open the Manage Templates pane using one of the following methods:
    • On the Edit tab, in the lower right corner of the Features group, click the Manage Templates dialog box launcher Selector.
    • In the Create Features pane, click Manage Templates Administrar plantillas.

    The Manage Templates pane appears.

  2. Right-click the redline layer, and click Create all templates Nuevas plantillas para capa on the context menu.
    Mange Templates pane

    All feature templates for the map or layer are automatically generated and named to match the layer name or a unique symbol value.

Configuring redline activity types

You can configure redline activities using the following steps:

  1. Open the project file that contains the redline layer you want to configure.
  2. In the Catalog pane, browse to the redline feature class in your database.
  3. Right-click the redline feature class and choose Data Design > Domains.

    The Domains pane appears in the Domains tab.

  4. On the Domains pane, click the dActivityType row.
    Editing redline activity type coded domains

    The preconfigured activity types are listed on the right. You can edit the activity types in this section.

  5. Click Save on the Domains tab after making any edits.

Enabling redline attachments

You can configure redlines to contain attachments using the following steps:

  1. Open the project file that contains the redline layer you want to configure.
  2. Open the Catalog pane and browse to the redline feature class in your database.
  3. Right-click the redline feature class and click Manage.

    The Feature Class Properties dialog box appears with the Manage tab active.

    Feature Class Properties dialog box, Manage tab
  4. With the Manage tab active, check the Attachments check box.
  5. Click OK.

    The Redline_ATTACH and Redline_ATTACHREL tables are added to the geodatabase.
