Share analytics

You can share the processing and analysis workflows that you create with ArcGIS Velocity with other Velocity members. You can share analytics with groups, your organization, or everyone.

Essential concepts

If you share an analytic with another Velocity member, they can view the general configuration of the analytic and create an analytic using this configuration as a template.

Only the owner of an analytic can edit it. Sharing an analytic with another member does not give that member the ability to edit that analytic. However, a member can create an analytic from the shared item. To do this, open the shared analytic and click Create Analytic in the upper right to save it as a new item.

Elements that are not shared

Real-time and big data analytics contain elements such as feeds, sources, tools, and outputs. When another member opens an analytic shared with them, not all properties and details of the feeds, sources, or outputs will be available. Any sensitive information such as user names, passwords, keys, headers, POST body, URLs, and others is removed. This ensures that the owner of an analytic does not unintentionally expose parameters such as API keys or other sensitive information.

As a result, when creating a new analytic from one that is shared, the other members will typically need to update sources and outputs to reenter details such as user names, passwords, and URLs.

Provide other members with a copy of an analytic

Real-time and big data analytics can be shared to other member of your organization by making a copy of an analytic. With a copy, configured elements such as feeds, sources, and outputs are preserved. However, the shared analytic does not expose sensitive information such as user names, passwords, API keys, and other parameters. To provide a copy of an analytic, do the following:

  1. In ArcGIS Velocity, from either the analytic list or the details page, clone the item you want to share. This creates a copy of the analytic and maintains all parameters including passwords, keys, and so on.
  2. In ArcGIS Online, select the cloned analytic item and change ownership to the new member.

The new member can now view the analytic in Velocity. All configurations are maintained, and the new member can edit or start this analytic as the owner.

Share an analytic

You can share an analytic in one of two ways. Both are described below.

Share from ArcGIS Velocity

To share from Velocity, complete the following steps:

  1. Open the analytic in Velocity.
  2. Click the lock button in the upper right of the analytic. A sharing pop-up appears.
  3. In the sharing pop-up, choose to share the analytic with your organization, specific groups, everyone, or some combination of the three.
  4. Click Apply. Other members can now search for and find the analytic in ArcGIS Online content and open it in Velocity to view it or use it as a template.

Share from ArcGIS Online

To share from ArcGIS Online, complete the following steps:

  1. Open ArcGIS Online and sign in.
  2. Browse to the Contents page.
  3. Check the check box next to the analytics you want to share and click Share.
  4. In the sharing pop-up, choose to share the analytic with your organization, specific groups, everyone, or some combination of the three.
  5. Click Save. Other members can now search for and find the analytic in ArcGIS Online content and open it inVelocity to view it or use it as a template.

Open an analytic shared with you

If a real-time or big data analytic was shared with you, there are two ways to open it. Both are described below.

Open from ArcGIS Online

Both real-time and big data analytics are item types that you can interact with in ArcGIS Online. Analytics can be shared with a group, your organization, or everyone. When you find an analytic that has been shared with you, through a search, browsing, or viewing group content, click Open in ArcGIS Velocity to view it in the Velocity app.

If your organization has an active Velocity subscription and you have sufficient privileges to create Velocity content, you can open the analytic.

Open from a URL

An analytic can be shared to other members using a URL. You can share the URL to members of your organization and different organizations.

  1. In an analytic, share it to the preferred sharing level or groups.
  2. Copy the URL of the analytic (such as https://velocity.arcgis.com/bigdata/2f6553d460ca4d27b77ffc8ef30d1fc1).
  3. Provide this URL to a member you want to give access.

Limitations

Only members of an ArcGIS Online organization with Velocity enabled can open shared analytics. Additionally, members must have a sufficient user type and role privileges to work with analytic items. See Create roles and assign users for additional information.
