Data Manager - OSM



When opening Data Manager the OSM isn't available on the map window.

The option to use OSM in the Configuration Wizard was selected and I've looked to the DataManager ini file and the URL seems Ok.

I've 2 servers with the same configuration and it is working on one and not working on the other.

In the server that isn't working the OSM layer is shown in APOLLO Geospatial Portal. The problem is only on Data Manager.


Any hint?

Re: Data Manager - OSM

Hi António,

  1. Make sure that the OSM is switched on in the Data Manager
  2. Check the 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Hexagon\ERDAS APOLLO Data Manager\datamanager.ini' to see if it has this switch in place:

Hi Jan.


Thanks for the response.

Yes, the option was switched on when I runned the configuration wizard.

The parameter of the URL is equal to the one you sent.


Any other hint?

Found the problem.

The requests to OSM URL from the java process was being block while the request from the Portal wasn't.


Thanks for the inputs.

Re: Data Manager - OSM

If it is your proxy blocking the OSM requests from Data Manager you should be able to add the proxy config to the end of this file 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Hexagon\ERDAS APOLLO Data Manager\datamanager.ini

I think I did it this way a few years ago when I was having trouble with OSM in Data manager but I might be wrong, so if this still works make sure you let us all know.
