This article shows how to get content into the Studio, which then can be used in a Desktop App. Most of the things are straightforward, so basically there are more hints and tips than a step by step instruction. If you want to get detailed information about every textfield, please have a look at the documentation.
Only the Studio Administrator has access to do all the following things.
Please note that you can't start any app out of the Studio. You have to login on the Apps page --> URL pattern: https://SERVERNAME/Apps/?tenant=TENANTNAME with the username and password you have created in Step 7 of the following tutorial
Here are some hints and tips for importing imagery in M.App Enterprise:
There are three database providers available in M.App Enterprise.
If a connection is possible to the database you will get all tables of the database displayed in a list, where you can define some initial options.
You can change some properties in there. As mentioned above you can't change the caching behaviour anymore.
Styling is pretty straightforward. If you need basic training of handling the Style Editor, please have a look here. Every single dataset, which was ever imported is available in the list, when you typed in a name for the StyleSet. If there is a pencil icon, you already have created an style and you can edit it. If there is a list icon, you have to create a style from scratch.
To get a thematic legend entry, you have to define filters for the dataset. Again is mentioned above the filter must be a valid WHERE clause of a SQL statement. For example a filter can look like: ([LAN_FA_TY] = 'AIRPORT') AND (([LOCID] = 'JFK') OR (([LOCID] = 'LGA') OR ([LOCID] = 'EWR')))
In GeoServices you can either use third-party OGC Services (WMS, WFS or WMTS) or you can use your own created OGC Service.
By clicking My GeoServices it is possible to create an own WMS, WFS and WMTS with the vector data you have previously imported. Some notes here:
By hovering the New button in GeoServices you will get a drop down list with all OGC Services and HERE Maps. Latter one can also be used in Desktop as well as in Browser Apps.
When you have chosen the correct service, you can either type in a third party URL in the corresponding textfield or click on MyGeoService. Then you can choose one of your own.
If you add a connection to the workflow, you will get two XML's, which are located in the Warehouse.
You have to type in the copyright text as well assign it to the corresponding datasets.
Users respectively roles are responsible for the access to certain apps. User name is also the login to the Apps page: https://SERVER/Apps/?tenant=TENANTNAME
The legend is theme based. So you have to click at least once on Add Theme. From the left hand side it is a simple drag and drop into the corresponding theme.
Action sets allows you do start an action at a certain place within the Desktop client:
And there are certain locations where you can start this action:
You have to name the action set otherwise you can't save it.
Queries allows you to get specific information about one or more geometries out of the database.
In the Tools section of M.App Enterprise Studio you can open up the PrintLayoutEditor. That tool allows you to create Print layouts, which then can be added in M.App Enterprise Studio.
All previous defined content is coming together here at the creation of a M.App.
