    Importing an ArcGIS™ Layer

    The ArcGIS™ Connector allows you to import ArcGIS™ layers into a CARTO account as dataset from ArcGIS Server™ (version 10.1 or higher is required). Note that this connector is disabled by default in the CARTO importer options. If you are interested in enabling it, please contact support@carto.com for more details.

    Tip: You can easily import ArcGIS™ server table URLs from CARTO Builder, with the ArcGIS Server™ Connect Dataset option.

    Import an ArcGIS™ Layer

    ArcGIS™ layers stored in ArcGIS Server™ can get imported as CARTO datasets. Such layers must be (PUBLIC) and accessible via an ArcGIS™ API REST URL, using the following structure:

    http://<host>/<site>/rest/services/<folder>/<serviceName>/<serviceType>/<layer_ID>

    Definition

    POST api/v1/imports 

    Params

    Param Description
    interval This value MUST be set to 0. Different values do not guarantee correct imports.
    service_item_id The ArcGIS™ API REST URL where the ArcGIS™ layer is located.
    service_name This value MUST be set to arcgis to make use of this connector.
    value Same URL as specified in the service_item_id parameter.

    Response

    The response includes:

    Attributes Description
    item_queue_id A unique alphanumeric identifier referencing the imported file in the targeted account.
    success A boolean value indicating whether the import process was successfully appended to the processing queue or not.

    Example

    Call

    curl -v -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"interval":"0","service_item_id": "http://url.to.arcgis.server.layer", "service_name": "arcgis", "value": "http://url.to.arcgis.server.layer"}' "https://{username}.carto.com/api/v1/imports/?api_key={API_KEY}"

    Response

    {
      "item_queue_id": "d676fd50-b774-4052-a4f1-e56ac6a4300e",
      "success": true
    }

    Syncing an ArcGIS™ Layer

    An ArcGIS™ layer can get imported to a CARTO account as a synchronized table. The target ArcGIS™ layer must be (PUBLIC) and accessible via an ArcGIS™ API REST URL, using the following structure:

    http://<host>/<site>/rest/services/<folder>/<serviceName>/<serviceType>/<layer_ID>

    Definition

    POST /api/v1/synchronizations

    Params

    Param Description
    interval The number of seconds for the synchronization period. Note: Sync interval must be at least 900 (15 minutes).
    service_item_id The ArcGIS™ API REST URL where the ArcGIS™ dataset is located. Note: Layers and Datasets must be (PUBLIC) and accessible via an ArcGIS™ API REST URL. You cannot enforce ArcGIS Server security parameters into the request, the REST endpoints must be publicly available.
    service_name This value MUST be set to arcgis to make use of this connector.
    url This value MUST be empty.

    Response

    The response includes the following items:

    Attributes Description

    item_queue_id A unique alphanumeric identifier that refers to the import process. It can be used to retrieve data related to the created dataset.
    id An alphanumeric identifier used internally by CARTO as a reference to the import process.
    name This item is currently deprecated.
    interval An integer value that stores the number of seconds between synchronizations.
    url This value is empty in this case.
    state A string value indicating the current condition of the importing process. It can have any of the following values: created, queued, syncing, success or failure.
    user_id A unique alphanumeric identifier to reference the user in the CARTO Engine.
    created_at The date time at which the dataset was created in the CARTO Engine.
    updated_at The date time at which the dataset had its contents modified.
    run_at The date time at which the table will get its contents synced with the source file.
    ran_at The date time at which the table had its contents synced with the source file.
    modified_at The date time at which the dataset was manually modified, if applicable.
    etag HTTP entity tag of the source file.
    checksum See etag.
    log_id A unique alphanumeric identifier to locate the log traces of the given dataset.
    error_code An integer value representing a unique error identifier.
    error_message A string value indicating the message related to the error_code element.
    retried_times An integer value indicating the number of attempts that were performed to sync the table.
    service_name This value is set to arcgis.
    service_item_id This item contains the ArcGIS™ API REST URL targeting the imported ArcGIS™ layer.
    type_guessing A boolean indicating whether field type guessing (for Excel and CSVs) is enabled or not.
    quoted_fields_guessing A boolean indicating whether type guessing of CSV fields inside double quotes is enabled for the data import.
    content_guessing A boolean indicating whether content guessing and automatic geocoding is enabled for the data import.
    visualization_id A unique identifier for the map created in the import process. Only applies if created_visualization is set to true.
    from_external_source A boolean indicating whether the Sync Table is connected to an external source, generally the CARTO Common-Data library.

    Import an ArcGIS™ Dataset

    Definition

    POST api/v1/imports 

    Params

    Param Description
    interval This value MUST be set to 0. Different values do not guarantee correct imports.
    service_item_id The ArcGIS™ API REST URL where the ArcGIS™ dataset is located.
    service_name This value MUST be set to arcgis to make use of this connector.
