Let’s take a look at the new features, improvements, and bug fixes available in Admin Tools 2.2:

New Features

Export Feature Services by Attribute Text (CSV)
This powerful tool allows you to generate a CSV based on a target value contained in any field and any number of feature services. Users can efficiently explore large datasets by searching for specific values within a field. This capability allows for targeted analysis, enabling users to extract relevant information quickly.

New Tool: Update Cache Control For Feature Layers
This tool allows you to update your cache control for feature layers in bulk, which can allow you to decrease the amount of time it takes to load a map containing the layer, improving the performance of any apps that use the layer.

New Tool: Update Public Data Collection For Feature Layers
With this tool, you can easily set whether you would like to enable or disable public data collection in your feature layers in bulk, completing your task in just a few clicks.

New Tool: Update Optimize Layer Drawing For Feature Layers
Drawing optimization is a setting for polyline and polygon feature layers that are used to increase the client-side performance of drawing features with geometries that have highly dense vertices. With this tool, you can enable or disable the optimization of your feature layers in bulk.

New Tool: Download Image Items
Have you ever found the need to download a large number of your image files at once and didn’t want to click on each item to download? With our new Download Image Items tool, you can select all image type items and grab them all at once from your ArcGIS Organization.
