VertiGIS Studio Item Manager offers advanced item management solutions for ArcGIS® Online and Portal for ArcGIS® users. This innovative solution makes it easy to manage and edit ArcGIS items… and the best part? It’s completely free to use!
We took some time to chat with Sean McClurkan from the City of Austin, Texas and our friends from Directions Magazine to learn how the City of Austin is currently using VertiGIS Studio Item Manager.
As Sean explained in the webinar (which can be viewed below), the City of Austin recently shifted their GIS server and application infrastructure to a new domain name. This change wasn’t as easy as it may sound! To successfully launch this new domain name, the City of Austin’s GIS team needed a way to update the domain name in their infrastructure. When they started making updates and testing applications, they found issues including licensing errors, incorrect JSON code, and server request errors. They tried to use ArcGIS Online Assistant to rectify these issues, however, editing domain URLs in item JSON is currently an unsupported feature in ArcGIS Online Assistant. To minimize the risk of causing more errors, they decided that VertiGIS Studio Item Manager would be the best way forward!
With VertiGIS Studio Item Manager it’s easy to update domain URLs in the item JSON. VertiGIS Studio Item Manager also offers clear – and easy-to-use – solutions for finding parent URLs without having to do much digging. By using VertiGIS Studio Item Manager, the GIS team at the City of Austin can go beyond what’s possible with ArcGIS Online Assistant. Now, they are well prepared to complete their domain name shift and continue to advance their use of GIS!
