Esri Maps for MicroStrategy components
Esri Maps for MicroStrategy has two components:
- Esri Maps for MicroStrategy server plug-in, which is deployed to both the MicroStrategy Web server and the MicroStrategy Mobile server (if using Esri Maps for MicroStrategy Mobile).
- Esri Maps for MicroStrategy Mobile, which is delivered as an iOS client framework that uses MicroStrategy Mobile SDK for iOS and other third-party development tools to build a custom iOS app.
Deploying the server plug-in to your web server allows your organization to integrate your MicroStrategy business intelligence (BI) data with the ArcGIS platform. Deploying the server plug-in to your organization's mobile server allows Esri Maps for MicroStrategy Mobile app users to access map-enabled documents on their iPads.
Before the mobile app can be shared and used, the Esri Maps for MicroStrategy Mobile iOS client framework must first be compiled. It is recommended that you secure the services of a developer in your organization to compile the Esri Maps for MicroStrategy Mobile app.
Esri Maps for MicroStrategy requires an ArcGIS Online organizational subscription or an on-premises Portal for ArcGIS deployment. It is assumed that the authentication method used to access the platform has been properly configured by the ArcGIS administrator.
Esri Maps for MicroStrategy 3.0 supports the following ArcGIS versions:
- ArcGIS Online: current version
- Portal for ArcGIS: 10.4, 10.4.1
Esri Maps for MicroStrategy server plug-in
The following sections outline the system requirements for the Esri Maps for MicroStrategy server plug-in.
MicroStrategy Web versions
For Esri Maps for MicroStrategy to operate properly, the Esri Maps for MicroStrategy server plug-in requires an operational configuration of these supported versions of MicroStrategy Web:
- MicroStrategy 10.3
- MicroStrategy 10.4
- MicroStrategy 10.5
MicroStrategy recommends using certified configurations over the supported configurations. Check MicroStrategy product documentation for certified versions of other third-party application servers for each corresponding version of MicroStrategy.
Certification tests were run for the previously mentioned versions of MicroStrategy. Earlier 10.x versions of MicroStrategy are expected to also be compatible with this release, but certification tests were not specifically run for these versions. To have earlier versions of MicroStrategy Web certified, please contact Esri Technical Support.
Web application servers
The following table outlines the web application servers on which Esri has focused its testing efforts for both the JSP server and ASP.NET server configurations. To see the web application server used by your MicroStrategy configuration, contact Esri Technical Support.
|Web application server||Tested version|
7.x | 8.x
JBoss Application Server
Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS)
7.x | 8.x
Esri does not test all combinations of web browsers (and the underlying client operating systems) certified by MicroStrategy. Rather, a subset of certified web browsers is selected, and testing is performed on the most recent operating systems. Not all selected browsers are tested on all identified operating systems.
Esri has not performed any client browser testing on platforms other than Windows. It is expected, however, that the Esri Maps for MicroStrategy plug-in will function as expected on non-Windows clients if one of the web browsers listed below is used. If this is not your experience, contact Esri Technical Support to ask that your particular configuration be tested.
The following browsers have been tested:
41 and later
42 and later
Esri Maps for MicroStrategy Mobile
The following sections outline the system requirements for the Esri Maps for MicroStrategy Mobile app.
To support the creation of the custom mobile app, the developer system must meet the following requirements:
- A Mac OS machine running OS X version 10.8.4 or later and 4 GB RAM or greater
- Xcode IDE 7.x
- iOS SDK 9.x
- MicroStrategy 10.5 Mobile client (see the MicroStrategy download site).
For more information about compiling the app using the Esri Maps for MicroStrategy Mobile iOS client framework, see Install the mobile app. For information about MicroStrategy Mobile SDK for iOS, see the MicroStrategy Developer Zone.
- Use the new build scripts to build a custom app using the MicroStrategy Mobile SDK 10.5.
When adding PKI support to your custom app, in the MicroStrategy Mobile SDK version 10.5 build environment, the Info_IPad.plist file can be found in the MicroStrategyMobiledirectory in the Project Explorer tab.
Mobile app user device
Esri Maps for MicroStrategy Mobile supports the following devices:
- iPad device running iOS 9.x
- iPad device running iOS 10.x
Esri Maps for MicroStrategy is available in the following languages:
MicroStrategy Web Universal requires several third-party components to be configured in order to function properly. These components include an application server, web server, and Java Development Kit. MicroStrategy Technical Support aids in the deployment of MicroStrategy Web Universal with these components. Esri Technical Support aids in the deployment (and use) of the Esri Maps for MicroStrategy plug-in within an operational configuration of MicroStrategy Web Universal.
Esri Technical Support analysts are not experts in all possible configurations of MicroStrategy Web Universal. Similarly, MicroStrategy Technical Support engineers are not experts in all the third-party components required for an operational configuration of MicroStrategy Web Universal. If you are experiencing a problem configuring MicroStrategy Web Universal, it is often more efficient to obtain help from MicroStrategy Technical Support. Similarly, if you are if you are experiencing a configuration problem with third-party components, it is more efficient to get help from the third party's support organization. In cases where a problem is deemed to be in the Esri Maps for MicroStrategy plug-in, Esri Technical Support can be available to work with MicroStrategy Technical Support and third-party vendors or their consultants.
