Esri Maps configuration settings

There are several properties for the JavaScript-based Esri Maps Web Part that can be configured using the Esri Maps Configuration Settings list installed with Esri Maps for SharePoint. For the Esri Maps Web Part, you can configure AllowSignInOverHttpProxy, ArcGISConnection, EsriMapsProxy, EsriMapsWebRoot, and OAuthAppId. You'll notice several additional properties, but those are for use with the Silverlight-based ArcGIS Map Web Part.

To open the Esri Maps Configuration Settings list, browse to the Site Settings page of your site collection. Under the Esri Maps for SharePoint Administration heading, click Configuration Settings.

Esri Maps configuration settings




The AllowSignInOverHttpProxy property is a setting for use with SharePoint 2010 and Internet Explorer. By default, this value is False, but if you're using SharePoint 2010 and Internet Explorer as your web browser, set this value to True. If you try to sign in to ArcGIS with this setting set to False, you'll receive the following error message: Your browser configuration does not support sending secured content. Your sign-in was canceled to ensure password safety.


The ArcGISConnection path property allows you to specify a path to Portal for ArcGIS or ArcGIS Online. These endpoints are used when adding data from ArcGIS or sharing your maps and layers to ArcGIS.


The Silverlight-based ArcGIS Map Web Part does not require a proxy file unless connecting to secured services. This setting is blank by default and can be updated if necessary.


This property is only for the Silverlight-based ArcGIS Map Web Part. For the JavaScript-based Esri Maps Web Part, this setting is controlled by the Organization administrator.


The JavaScript-based Esri Maps Web Part uses a proxy file, deployed to the server during theEsri Maps for SharePoint installation, to reach Portal for ArcGIS or ArcGIS Online from the SharePoint server. This proxy is generic and makes an HTTPRequest. You can make changes to the proxy or attempt to configure the proxy on other servers, but these are custom scenarios that may not be fully supported.

If you expect your application to run on browsers that do not support cross-origin resource sharing (CORS), install a server-side proxy script to allow cross-domain requests. Currently, Internet Explorer 8 and 9 do not provide full support for CORS and require the server-side proxy script. See Can I use Cross-Origin Resource Sharing for more information on other browsers.
