Start shape upload



This operation uploads the shape files of the work zone.

All the shapefile must be uploaded in a single request. Every time a shapefile is uploaded, the existing shapefile is removed. Therefore, uploading shapefiles in an incremental order is not supported. For more information on uploading shapefiles, see Configuring a Custom Map Layer by Using the Metadata API.

Note: From version 16.8.3 onwards, when the workzone shapefiles are uploaded, Oracle Field Service Cloud performs several validations to rectify the data imported from non-Oracle applications. If the shapefile is already uploaded, then it is recommended that you upload the shapefiles again to ensure that there are no issues in the existing data.
