ArcGIS connector

The ArcGIS connector is used to import layers from an ArcGIS server via ArcGIS REST API, using the following syntax:



  1. Choose an option:

    • If you want to create a dataset, click Catalog > Datasets and click the New dataset button.

    • If you want to add a source to an existing dataset, click Catalog > Datasets and select the desired dataset. Then, click Add a source.

  2. In the wizard that opens, select ArcGIS under the Configure a remote service section.

  3. Configure your HTTP connection to import the ArcGIS layer:

    • Under the Connection information to the HTTP server section, enter the URL to the ArcGIS server in the Server URL box. For example,

    • Under the Path section, enter the path to the layer. For example, /ArcGIS/rest/services/Hurricanes/NOAA_Tracks_1851_2007/MapServer/0.

  4. From the preview of the first 20 records that appears, configure the source.

  5. Configure the dataset information or use the pre-filled values:

    • In the Dataset name field, enter the title for this dataset.

    • In the Dataset technical identifier field, enter a meaningful identifier for this dataset.

    • If you want anyone with access to your domain to be able to explore the dataset, toggle off Access restricted to allowed users and groups.


Name Description Usage
Decode values

Decode coded values for a domain

For coded domains in ArcGIS, coded values are associated with a more user-friendly description, for example, "70" for "Bus lane".

When the source includes coded values, this option is toggled on by default.

Coded values (for example, "70") are decoded to display a more user-friendly description of what the code value means (for example, "Bus Lane").
