Configure Your GeoEvent 10.3 Connector to Use a Secure GeoRSS Feed

GeoRSS is a standard way of tagging an RSS feed so that applications can use embedded location information in each post. Using the GeoEvent Extension for ArcGIS Server, you can monitor a GeoRSS feed in real time and use it to update the applications and common operational pictures used by your colleagues. Should you encounter a secured GeoRSS feed that you would like to use, there is no standard connector that allows you to pass credentials. However, it is possible to configure a connector (without programming) that will allow you to access a GeoRSS service secured with basic HTTP authentication.

Secure feeds may be input from an Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) system, tracking company assets, or any secure GeoRSS service provided by a third party that you wish to consume and track with the analytic and processing capabilities of the GeoEvent Extension for ArcGIS Server 10.3.

Setting up a Proxy

A proxy page stands between a server and an application. By using a proxy, you allow an application to authenticate on your behalf, bypassing a challenge and accessing secured services inside of an application. While the token is hidden, an application can access secured services with token-based authentication; a proxy handles massive post requests over 2,048 characters. Additionally, you can use a proxy when a resource and an application are on separate domains, as well as when cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) support is unavailable.

Tips for Compressing with Existing Geodatabase Replicas

In a versioned environment, all edits are stored in what we call delta tables, or Adds and Deletes tables, and these tables are assigned to a unique state ID. Edits are held in the delta tables to handle any conflicts in a multi-user enterprise geodatabase. A compress operation trims the delta tables of any unreferenced state ids, consolidating the states lineage down to one state. If a state is still being referenced, it will remain in the delta tables, resulting in a partial compress.

In a fully compressed geodatabase, there are no rows in the delta tables, and the state tree is trimmed back to one state, state_id=0. Although a full compress is ideal, it is not always necessary and in some cases may not even be practical. For example, if there are many multi-generation replicas in your geodatabase that are not unregistered before the compress, you will need to send changes for all of these replicas to achieve a full compress. If there are many Two-way replicas, and you intend to fully compress both the parent and the child geodatabases, this process of synchronization will need to be done separately from both geodatabases, even if there are no changes to be sent.
