Share results to service

The Append Group Layer to Feature Service tool allows you to publish all the features in a group layer into a series of layers in a feature service.

To use this tool to publish features of a group layer to your ArcGIS organization, ensure you meet the requirements of the tool. Below are the criteria and usage of the Append Group Layer to Feature Service tool:

  • This tool must be run from within ArcMap.
  • You must be logged into an ArcGIS organization or provide the credentials of a built in organization user (if running ArcGIS 10.2.1).
  • The target feature service must be published to your ArcGIS organization with Create capabilities enabled prior to running the tool.

For example, if the layer in the group layer is Results 1 and you add Result in the Layer Maps Local Layer Name column, the features from Result 1 will be appended to the Layer in the Service with the name from the Service Layer Name column for that entry. Boolean
