Hi, I use Autodesk Infrastructure Map Server to create several Map Layouts for different customer services. I need all the functions are same. Only the data is different. So I have to custmize saparately for these different Map Layouts. It's kind of duplicated work. Is there a way that I can just customize one layout, then apply to the other map layouts? Thank you.

Use the MgResourceService API to read out your WebLayout/ApplicationDefinition XML, replace the Map Definition ID within to point to the customer-specific map you are after, save the modified WebLayout/ApplicationDefinition to a session based resource, then redirect to the AJAX/Fusion viewer with this session-based resource id


This way, you have the same application structure, but a different underlying map.

Thank you, Jackie. I found most of the data for our different customers shared the same data, just some of layers are different. So can I just create a class: when different customers logged in, only shared data and some of particular data are visible, while the other layers those are not belong to this particular customer will be invisible. That way, I don't need to douplcate these shared data. Thank you for your help.
