Report Activity


Executes a report in a client application.

Inheritance Hierarchy:



This activity triggers a report to run on the client. The report must exist in the site. Once the report has been run, a download report link displays in the client (optional). The URL of the report is an output of the activity.

The URL returned by the report activity is a short-lived URL (5 minutes from time of most recent access). It should not be emailed or stored for later use.

In a Workflow:

The Report activity can be used as the final activity at the end of a complex workflow that guides the user through a set of activities to collect or transform data or a geometry and then finally creates a report on the collected data.


Name Description

In Arguments

Custom Extent

The custom extent to use for the map rendered in the report if the Report Extent Type property is set to CustomExtent.

Layer Name

The name of the Geocortex layer this feature set is related to. If a Layer Id is also supplied the Id will be preferred.

MapService Id

Notification Email Address

An address to send the report status notification emails to. This option works only if the specified report is configured to enable email notifications.

Spatial Relationship

The spatial relationship to be applied to the input geometry filter when performing the query. The default is esriSpatialRelIntersects.


Shorthand for a literal search text on the display field, equivalent to: where<displayField>like'%%'. The text is case sensitive. This parameter is ignored if the where parameter is specified. You can determine what the display field is for a layer using the ArcGIS Services Directory.

Text Fields

A dictionary of name value pairs that represent text field inputs to the report. The provided text field names must match the text field names specified by the report.


A where clause for the query to get the data. Any legal SQL Where clause operating on the fields in the layer is allowed, for example: where=POP2000>350000.
