ArcEQuIS Requirements and Setup

The ArcEQuIS connection requires an EQuIS 7 Enterprise site (Build 19300 or later) with REST API licensing. EQuIS users must be assigned to the REST API role (in Enterprise) for any authentication mechanism to succeed. See also How to Connect and Using EQuIS Data.


Setup and Configuration


Download the ArcEQuIS Add-In file (ArcEQuIS.esriAddinX) from the EarthSoft Community Center.


Save the ArcEQuIS.esriAddinX file to your {Documents}\ArcGIS\AddIns\ArcGISPro folder. (If this folder does not exist, create it manually).


Start ArcGIS Pro Desktop. On the Options tab in the the Add-In Manager, set the security to "Require Add-Ins to be digitally signed by a trusted publisher".





Setting Up Esri Authentication


1.Register an application with ArcGIS Online by following Esri’s instructions, posted here:


2.To link your Enterprise site to your Esri account to allow for SSO, create a new record in the ST_CONFIG table with the values provided in the Esri portal as shown below.




CONFIG_SECTION = 'ArcEQuIS'                                                



(the Esri portal URI)


OBJECT_TYPE = 'clientId'


OBJECT_VALUE = '{client_id}'

(The Client ID assigned by the Esri portal)


STRING_VALUE = '{client_secret}'

(The Client Secret assigned by the Esri portal)













Enable Logging


ArcEQuIS event logging uses the ArcGIS Pro diagnostic functionality (see ArcGIS Pro Concepts) that is disabled by default.


Administrators may enable ArcEQuIS logging by running ArcGIS Pro from the command line with the enable argument:

“C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro\bin\ArcGISPro.exe" /enablediagnostics.


The ArcEQuIS event logging will populate a new ArcGISProLog.xml file located in the default Documents path (typically {Documents}\ArcGIS\Diagnostics).
