    My idea is that there should be an option for each legend item (in REST and SOAP Api) to only list features in the legend that are actually visible in the current map extent.
    For example:
    If there is a unique value renderer containing 100 items and more (eg. geology) it would be very useful to display only items which are shown in the current map extent. Map extent could be a parameter for GetLiveLegend.
    My idea is that when Data Driven Pages is enabled, there should be an option for each legend item (in the legend properties) to only list features in the legend that are actually visible in the extent of that page. - See more at: Live Legend defined by features in page extent for Data Driven Pages
     
    Limit the features shown in the Legend to input geometry extents of the features being used for the Data Driven Pages in lieu of the simple map Extent. 

    Without this the Legend is displaying features that are within the simple map extent, but not actually within the Data Driven extent. (displayed but not applicable to the purpose of the map).


     Setting the "Clip Data Frame to Current Data Driven Extent" option for the data frame should fix this but the Legend does not adhere to this setting.(not displayed in the data frame, but still in the Legend :(
