Automated or on-demand backups of ArcGIS Online data, maps, and apps


CivicLens provides an affordable and reliable backup solution, ensuring minimal disruption in the event of accidental deletion or faulty edits to feature services, maps, apps, files, and more. The process also generates a list of feature services not used in any web maps and a list of web maps with no valid layers to reduce clutter in your org.

Backups are available as a fully managed service or desktop application (Windows/MacOS). Each backup includes an item inventory with name, type, sharing, summary, description, number of views, create/modify date, service URL, and completeness score.
