The host or URL for the ArcGIS Portal. For example:
The mechanism used to authenticate with the ArcGIS Portal. The available options are:
- Generate Token – Obtain an ArcGIS Token from the server using a given username and password. This is the default.
- Basic – HTTP Basic authentication.
- Digest – HTTP Digest authentication.
- NTLM – Also known as Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA). Authenticates using a given username and password.
- Kerberos – Also known as Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA). Authenticates as the current Windows user. This option is supported only on Windows systems connected to a domain.
- Web Service – Use an OAuth 2.0 Web Service and Connection. Organizations with SAML or federated login should use this option. To configure a Web Service for your Portal, refer to the instructions in the Esri ArcGIS Portal Web Service template included with FME. (From Workbench, open FME Options > Web Connections and click the Manage Services button. Navigate to the Esri ArcGIS Portal template.)
If the Authentication Type is Web Service, specify the Web Connection to use.
If the Authentication Type is Generate Token, Basic, Digest, or NTLM, specify the username.
If the Authentication Type is Generate Token, Basic, Digest, or NTLM, specify the user’s password.
This parameter specifies the Feature Service from which to read layers (feature types). You can click the Browse button to obtain a list of all Feature Services accessible by the current user. A connection window appears while the system browses all accessible folders and groups for Feature Services. Only one Feature Service may be selected.
This parameter takes the form of “folder or group name/feature service name”, and optionally suffixed with the Feature Service item ID if the name is ambiguous.
The Feature Service’s item ID is alphanumeric. The provided name and/or ID must match a Feature Service item on ArcGIS Portal.
After you have entered a valid Feature Service, click the Browse button to select layers or tables for import. A connection window appears while the system retrieves a list of layers and tables from the selected Feature Service.
Once the layer list appears, you can select one or more layers or tables, and then click OK to dismiss the window. Their name(s) will appear in the Layers parameter.
Enable this option to work with the Version Management Server.
The name of the Branch Version to read.
Click the Browse button to list the available Branch Versions for the selected Feature Service.
The type of versioned data to read. Select one of:
- Features: Read the features on the selected Branch Version.
- Differences: Compare the selected Branch Version against the DEFAULT version. The resulting features have the fme_db_operation format attribute with a value of “insert”, “update”, or “delete”, corresponding to the type of difference.
This parameter specifies the maximum number of features that may be present in a single response from the server. Reduce this value if reads are failing due to timeouts.
The value for this parameter is capped to the maxRecordCount property on the Feature Service.
Additional Attributes to Expose
Use this parameter to expose Format Attributes in Workbench when you create a workspace:
- In a dynamic scenario, it means these attributes can be passed to the output dataset at runtime.
- In a non-dynamic scenario, this parameter allows you to expose additional attributes on multiple feature types. Click the browse button to view the available format attributes (which are different for each format) for the reader.
