Web Map needs to reflect updated schema changes to feature service (ArcGIS Online/ArcGIS for Server)

Idea created by alnesbit on Nov 16, 2015
    Once a schema change is made to a feature class in your geodatabase, you then republish the feature service using ArcGIS for Server. But that really does nothing for you in ArcGIS online. The ArcGIS Online web map will not reflect any updated schema changes if the web map is already created prior to the schema change!

    You have to recreate the ArcGIS Online web map to see the schema changes. This workflow is completely unbelievable and impractical. What a waste of time, Esri. I hope you can change this in future releases.
