Share a mobile map package for Indoors mobile apps

Available for an ArcGIS organization licensed with the Indoors extension.

A mobile map package consolidates maps into a single file (MMPK) that can be shared with your ArcGIS Enterprise portal or ArcGIS Online organization. These maps can be accessed on your mobile devices for use by the ArcGIS Indoors mobile apps.

Note:
  • Mobile map packages archive the data in the map, making it available for offline use. They can also include web layers as connected layers referencing online content.
  • The following layers are supported to connect and reference online content:
    • People
    • Events
    • <Points of interest> layers
    • <Work order> layers
    • <Office hotel> layers (the Units layer and Areas table)
  • Floor plan layers like Details, Levels, and Facilities should not reference online content.
  • Online content can only reference feature service based layers. Map image layers are not supported.
  • All layers in the map should have unique names.
