After extensive discussions with Esri support, we are making some changes to the Esri Staff Portal in order to improve its functionality.
The changes we are making will require us to re-federate the servers under Portal and will lead to a disruption in service. The re-federation process will also break the links to existing web maps in Portal.
With that in mind, we need you to identify critical maps by 12:00 noon on 4/14 and send the web map URL to Tim Blum at [log in to unmask] Tim will pull down the JSON for the map, in order to better facilitate the rebuilding process.
We will start repairs at 12:01p.m. so don't be late!
The database and static storage will not be affected, only links to existing maps and applications in the Staff (and by reference, the Congressional) Portal.
The repair process will take much of the day on Thursday (and possibly into Friday). We will provide updates as we make progress.
Thanks for your patience and continued support.
