Add Features

Description

This operation adds features to the associated feature layer or table (POST only). The addFeatures operation is performed on a feature service layer resource.

The operation returns the results of the edits in an array of edit result objects. Each edit result identifies a single feature and indicates if the inserts were successful or not. If not, it also includes an error code and an error description.

You can provide arguments to the addFeatures operation as defined in the following parameters table:

Request parameters

Parameter

Details

f

Description: The response format. The default response format is html.

Values: html | json

features

Description: The array of features to be added. The structure of each feature in the array is the same as the structure of the json feature object returned by the ArcGIS REST API.

Features to be added to a feature layer should include the geometry.

Records to be added to a table should not include the geometry.

Syntax: [ <feature1>, <feature2> ]

Example:

[
  {
    "geometry" : {"x" : -118.15, "y" : 33.80},  
    "attributes" : {
      "OWNER" : "Joe Smith",
      "VALUE" : 94820.37,
      "APPROVED" : true,
      "LASTUPDATE" : 1227663551096
    }
  },
  {
    "geometry" : { "x" : -118.37, "y" : 34.086 },  
    "attributes" : {
      "OWNER" : "John Doe",
      "VALUE" : 17325.90,
      "APPROVED" : false,
      "LASTUPDATE" : 1227628579430
    }
  }
]

gdbVersion

//This option was added at 10.1.

Description: Geodatabase version to apply the edits. This parameter applies only if the isDataVersioned property of the layer is true.

If the gdbVersion parameter is not specified, edits are made to the published map’s version.

Syntax: gdbVersion=<version>

Example: gdbVersion=SDE.DEFAULT

returnEditMoment

This option was added at 10.5 and works with ArcGIS Server services only.

Description: Optional parameter specifying whether the response will report the time features were added. If returnEditMoment = true, the server will report the time in the response's editMoment key. The default value is false.

Values: true|false

Example: returnEditMoment=true

rollbackOnFailure

//This option was added at 10.1.

Description: Optional parameter to specify if the edits should be applied only if all submitted edits succeed. If false, the server will apply the edits that succeed even if some of the submitted edits fail. If true, the server will apply the edits only if all edits succeed. The default value is true.

Not all data supports setting this parameter. Query the supportsRollbackonFailureParameter property of the layer to determine whether or not a layer supports setting this parameter. If supportsRollbackOnFailureParameter = false for a layer, then when editing this layer, rollbackOnFailure will always be true, regardless of how the parameter is set. However, if supportsRollbackonFailureParameter = true, this means the rollbackOnFailure parameter value will be honored on edit operations.

Values: true|false

Example: rollbackOnFailure=true

Example usage
