How Do I Install Mapfolio for ArcGIS (On-Premises)?

Application Installation

NOTEKeep in mind that this install guide represents the minimum steps needed in an ideal environment with no variables or complications to overcome. It is not meant to serve as a comprehensive solution to any and all installation workflows and environments. Enterprise expertise is still essential for handling this installation. 

1. Requirements for receiving a licensed build from GEO Jobe

In order to receive a licensed build of Mapfolio, the following information must be provided to GEO Jobe.

  • The URL where Mapfolio will be installed (the URL that will appear in the browser’s address bar when accessing the application).

  • The URL of the Enterprise Environment including the host name and web adapter.

  • Whether or not IWA is being used for the Enterprise Environment. If not using IWA, an OAuth App ID for each Enterprise Environment created via registering a Web Mapping Application item. The URL of Mapfolio must be set in the Valid Redirect URI’s of the Web Mapping Application item. If the Mapfolio is being hosted on the same enterprise server, the option for app registration may not show up and this is a known issue by ESRI.

2. Request a new build from GEO Jobe

All of the above information will be stored in our license database so that any future builds will already contain your App IDs and Enterprise Environment URLs. We use this information to generate a custom build just for your environment.

3. Unzip the contents to the zip file provided by GEO Jobe

Unzip the contents of the zip file to the web-accessible directory provided to GEO Jobe in step 1.

4. Convert the folder in IIS to an application

Convert the folder from step 3 into an application.
