Fixed and Custom products are supported in Products on Demand (PoD). These are options set in the web application Java configuration file, podconfig.js. You can choose which product type your PoD app displays: Custom Product or Fixed Product.

The Fixed Product option is for more standardized cartographic outputs. The host organization defines the chart extent, scale, page size, and orientation available in the web app. You can choose a chart extent from a published feature server layer.

The Custom Product option allows you to create charts anywhere. Charts are built in real time using the scale, page size, and orientation options in the app. You can add data from ArcGIS Online or your organization account, and the added data shows in the web map and the exported PDF. Custom Product is the default setting in the web application.


You must create areas of interest (AOIs) representing chart extents before enabling the Fixed Product.

Publish areas of interest for a Fixed Product

A polygon feature class with areas of interest representing chart extents must be created. This Fixed AOI polygon feature class is published as a map service to ArcGIS Server with Feature Access capability enabled.
