Supported environments

ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint is deployed as a farm solution (wsp) to Microsoft SharePoint.

ArcGIS Map Search is deployed as a SharePoint add-in.

For ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint add-ins to operate properly, Esri assumes an operational configuration of Microsoft SharePoint.

ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint is supported for use with the following:

  • Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010
  • Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010
  • Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013
  • Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013
  • Microsoft SharePoint Server 2016

Note:

Because the add-in model was introduced in SharePoint 2013, ArcGIS Map Search is not supported in SharePoint 2010. In addition, because SharePoint Foundation Server 2013 does not support Managed Metadata Services, ArcGIS Map Search is not supported in this environment.

Esri tests ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint only in software environments certified or supported by Microsoft SharePoint; not all SharePoint-supported environments have been tested or certified. For more information, see the Esri supported environments policy.

Note:

ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint does not support SharePoint 2010 templates in SharePoint 2013.

System requirements

See the system requirements for Microsoft SharePoint for information:

Required software

Before deploying ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint, the following prerequisites must be met. For more detailed information, see System checks.

  • Microsoft SharePoint Server or Foundation, 2010 or 2013 or SharePoint Server 2016 correctly installed and configured
  • The following MIME types must be present on the SharePoint server on which ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint is installed:
    • .svg image/svg+sml
  • Secure store service—By default, ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint uses the Secure Store Service (SSS) to secure ArcGIS credentials and automatically generates a target application during installation; this is the recommended setting. If you don't want to use SSS or if SSS is not available during installation, you must manually generate an encryption key after installation. For more information, see Install ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint. If you choose to use SSS during installation, ensure the Secure Store Service is started and that the service itself is properly configured.
  • Follow these steps to access the Secure Store Service and generate a new key:
    1. On the Central Administration home page, in the Application Management section, click Manage service applications.
    2. Click the Secure Store Service link.
    3. Click Generate New Key.

      For details, see Configure the Secure Store Service in SharePoint 2013, Configure the Secure Store Service (SharePoint Server 2010), or Configure the Secure Store Service in SharePoint Server 2016.

    4. Exit Central Administration.
  • ArcGIS Enterprise—To successfully run the ArcGIS Maps Locate workflow in ArcGIS Enterprise, configure the geocoder service.
  • SharePoint 2010—To successfully run the ArcGIS Maps Locate workflow in SharePoint 2010, download the certificatee from ArcGIS Online or your ArcGIS Enterprise instance and import it to SharePoint.
  • Managed Metadata service—ArcGIS Map Search creates a SharePoint term used to store geotgags generated by the add-in. The term store is used to isolate geotags from other tags not created by ArcGIS Map Search. The Managed Metadata service is required to manage this term set.
  • Search service—ArcGIS Map Search requires the SharePoint Search service to process search queries.
  • App Management and Subscription Settings services—ArcGIS Map Search requires that the App Management Service Application be installed and started and that it has an associated App Management Service Application Proxy, as shown below.
    App Management

    If this is not already in place in your organization, run the following PowerShell script on the SharePoint on which you want to install ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint:

    Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell
    $appManagementServiceApplication= (Get-SPServiceApplication) | Where-Object {$_.TypeName -eq "App Management Service Application"}
    New
      -SPAppManagementServiceApplicationProxy
      -Name AppManagementProxy
      -UseDefaultProxyGroup
      -ServiceApplication 
    $appManagementServiceApplication
