When creating an Analyzer View there is the option of an Online File. Use this option to add Shape file content. (Shape file must be available through an URL)

The shape file needs to be accessible from an URL  ... http(s) based.

It's hard to give you an example here.

If you have a local shape file you want to use, you can create a virtual directory on your web server and put it there.

You need to add a Virtual Directory in your IIS web server. (see attached image)

The shape file needs to be dropped at the specified location of the virtual directory.

 

Then you should be abel to access the shape file like:

http://<servername>/<virtualdirectory_name>/<shapefile>

You have to configure a proper MIME type in IIS to serve this content. As this is not related to M.App Enterprise please search for it elsewhere to get a detailed explanation.
