Geospaital Portal 2014 ignores KVP variant paramter?

Hi all,

 

Our client is using Geospatial Portal 2016, they have simply just 5 map themes, they are using KVP variant to show different map theme, but the parameter does not work properly.

 

Here is how it shows on the client machine:

I also duplicate this on my local

Is there any trick that I am supposed to do to make it work?

 

Kind regards

I believe the variant parameter value needs to be the underlying GUID instead of the name.

 

E.g.  variant=b87fd089-c81c-47ec-836a-7133c8a6698e

 

The "Show a link to the map" button the Tools toolbar will give you an example.

Hi Egon,

 

If you have a few workspaces and the name of your maps are globally unique. You can rename the guid value with the map name. I forgot to reassign the workspace for the portal after I done renaming. It is working now.

 

Kind regards,
