ArcFM Web 4.6.2 Installation and Configuration Guide
ArcFM Web maximizes your investment in ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Online web mapping technologies. The rich value of ArcFM Web is derived from Schneider Electric's partnership with Latitude Geographics. ArcFM Web leverages their Geocortex Essentials product to provide a comprehensive web viewer on the ArcGIS platform. ArcFM Web contains all of the features and functions of Geocortex Essentials as well as utility specific-functionality. The mission of ArcFM Web is to provide easy-to-access information and help utility companies solve problems that are specific to the industry.

After the installation is complete, refer to the Geocortex Essentials 4.6 Administrator Guide and the Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 2.7.1 Administrator and Developer Guide for information on configuring the ArcFM Web features that are a part of the core Geocortex Essentials product. All configuration takes place in the Geocortex Essentials Manager. To launch this application, type the following URL in any web browser. Remember to replace <ServerName> with the name of your server.
The following configuration tasks must be completed for the utility-specific functionality:
ArcFM Web must be configured with a map service. To point ArcFM Web to a map service, follow these steps:
- Log in to the Geocortex Essentials Manager.
- Click Add New Site. A site creation wizard walks you through the process.
- After you create the site, the Geocortex Essentials Manager loads the Configure Site screen and defaults to the Map setting. Click the Add Map Service button.
- On the Search tab, type the URL of your ArcGIS Port WebMap or an ArcGIS map service. For example, you can type http://server.arcfmsolution.com/arcgis/rest/services/Schneiderville/ElectricDistribution/MapServer as the service URL. Click the search icon or press Enter.
- Select the map service to use (e.g., ElectricDistribution), and click Add to Map. You can also select individual layers in the service to Add as Map Service or Add as Feature Layer.
- Click Save Site.
The tracing property in ArcFM Web defines your map service as electric, gas, or water. To add a tracing property to the map service, follow these steps:
- Log in to the Geocortex Essentials Manager.
- On the left side of the screen, expand the Site tab list and click the Map tab.
- On the Map screen, click the Map Services tab.
- Hover over the map service you want to define and select the edit tool that appears to the right of the service name.
- On the bottom left corner of the screen, click Properties.
- Click Add Property.
- Define the property with the following values:
- In the Name box, type ArcFMTracingCapabilities.
- In the Value box, type Electric, Gas, or Water, depending on the service type you need. If the service will be used for multiple networks, separate the values with a comma, but do not use spaces.
- Click OK to close the Custom Properties box.
Schneider Electric has created workflow activities to facilitate the development of tracing enabled workflows. In order to utilize these, the workflow developer will need to assure that the necessary assemblies are present in their Workflow Designer directory structure (these assemblies are available in the ArcFM-Web-4.6.2.zip) For example:
C:\Program Files (x86)\SchneiderElectric\ArcFM Web\TestInstance462\Workflow Designer
This path may vary, depending on how your machine has been set up, but once the necessary assemblies have been placed, the activities will appear in the Workflow Designer:
Please see the attached Sample Workflow as an example.
To uninstall ArcFM Web 4.6.2, follow these steps:
- From Control Panel, select Programs and Features. In a typical installation, you need to uninstall three components:
- ArcFM Web
- Geocortex Core
- Geocortex Identity Server
- Beginning with ArcFM Web, select the program and click Uninstall.
- If prompted to confirm, select Yes.
- Wait for the uninstall process to complete before you uninstall the next program.
- Repeat this process for Geocortex Core and Geocortex Identity Server.
- You need to manually delete the HTML5 Viewer and Geocortex directories. The default location of these file trees is C:\inetpub\wwwroot.
- Open IIS Manager and remove the Geocortex folder and the HTML5 Viewer application.
- Some data files remain on the system after uninstall (e.g., log files, user data, configuration data). In a typical installation on a 64-bit system, you will find these files under C:\Program Files (x86)\SchneiderElectric\ArcFM Web\Default and C"\Program Files\Latitude Geographics. You can safely delete these files if you are certain you will not need to install ArcFM Web on the same server again.
